Cashmere Cowl

Cooler weather combined with months of gift giving holidays makes for a new season:  Cowl Season. To celebrate the season over the next few months, we will highlight several cowls we love.

We start out with a cashmere bang!  The cowl, pictured above, requires 2 skeins of Mongolian Cashmere 4-ply by Jade Sapphire. It would make a lovely gift for someone special or a luxurious treat for yourself. This yarn is lofty, super soft and perfect for keeping your neck warm and toasty.

The pattern is also from Jade Sapphire and is available only with the purchase of 2 skeins of the Mongolian Cashmere 4-ply. If you’re ordering from us online, please mention that you would like us to include the pattern in the “Special Instructions” section at check out.
