With a rib-like texture that is more gentle ripples on a lake than steep waves in the ocean, our slip-stitch Floats Cowl is a dreamy drift of a knit!

We made our original version in Season Alpaca for a fairly crisp finish, but this time we turned to our very newest yarn, Brume, for a hazier take.

Fifty eight percent mohair for coziness, 25% wool for durability, and 17% silk for luminescence, Brume is a perfect balance of good things, distinctive for its soft and mysterious beauty.

Available in 25 gorgeous colors, we chose high-impact Amethyst Purple, a very happy note for a tough season ahead. Eye-catching Amethyst Purple or quiet Tea Rose, dusky Gray Quartz or radiant Alpine Phlox, you’ll need just two skeins for your own Floats Cowl!
