DESIGNER RECOMMENDED YARN: Magnum by Cascade Yarns (100% Wool; 250g/123yds): 1 Skein.
ALTERNATE YARN: Rasta by Malabrigo (100% Merino Wool; 150g/89yds): 2 Skeins. Rasta is made of soft merino wool that is lightly felted so that the garment resists pilling and shedding. The beautiful variegated colors add depth and movement as well.
ALTERNATE YARN: Bulky by Blue Sky Fibers (50% Alpaca / 50% Wool; 100g/45yds): 3 Skeins. For a slouchier cowl, try Bulky. The alpaca creates extra softness and drape while the wool provides a bit of structure. If you feel that this cowl needs a little something extra, try one of Bulky's gorgeous colors!
