This cowl was designed for a worsted weight wool in two colors. The main color is Jill Draper Makes Stuff Windham (113g/220yds per skein), a super soft domestic Merino with a classic 4-ply construction, and the contrast color is Spincycle Yarns Dream State (100g/150yds per skein), a superwash Merino dyed in the wool to create slow, dramatic color changes throughout each skein.
