Tapered Cowl Using Blue Sky Fibers Baby Alpaca
The long, slow shaping of this cowl begins with a wider base that slips as far over one or both shoulders as the circumference allows, while the narrower top end fills in the neck to keep you beautifully cozy.
Blue Sky Fibers Baby Alpaca knit on slightly smaller needles creates a densely plush fabric with luxurious folds. It’s a sport-weight fiber spun from 100% baby alpaca—that means it’s the perfect type of cuddly-soft to drape around your neck!
