Shining and soft in Dos Tierras or Silky Merino, this cowl draws its name and inspiration from architecture, sculpture, and carving. Deep chevron ridges are striking and prominent in a single, semi-solid colorway, or can be used to highlight the beauty of a variegated shade.
The word cantera means ‘quarry’ in Spanish, inspiration derived from the carved looking cables in this piece.
