Our Gradient Cowl in Linen Quill spins in a stunning wheel of color. Different than our original Gradient Cowl in Line Weight, which was like a bright ferris wheel, this one in our new Linen Quill is more like a walk around a quiet, windswept field.
Linen Quill’s blend of fine highland wool, alpaca, and linen brings a rugged elegance to our Gradient Cowl. Its drape has beautiful body and drama, and its fine weight is perfect for spring’s chills.
And in our Sweetgrass palette, this Cowl flows from warm neutrals, through earthy pink, and into stony grays. The yarn is doubled throughout, so that each color transitions to the next by combining one strand of each. The effect is like a Japanese ink wash, quiet, subtle, and very beautiful.
Our Gradient Cowl Bundle includes all the yarn you’ll need to make your own beautiful circle of color!
