In partnership with the glorious yarn-creators Knit Collage, our new Comet collection is an interplanetary journey through wondrous color, out-of-this-world texture, and cosmic beauty!
An inventive spin of wool, mohair, and Angelina sparkle, Knit Collage creates Comet in India in collaboration with a team of 13 craftswomen who expertly card, spin, and finish each skein.
Our Kaleidoscope Cowl is the perfect show-stopper for this extra-special yarn. Knit in simple seed stitch on US 19 needles, Comet does all the talking!
Choose from five stunning colors (we used Cosmic Rays) and pick up two skeins for your own Kaleidoscope Cowl… A quick knit and a truly stellar gift!
Designed for Purl Soho by Adam Aronowitz.
