This is a short cowl, with a twist at the base. It sits perfectly at the neck, giving that extra warmth on cool autumn days. It pairs perfectly with open necked T shirts, tunics and dresses.
This warm & stylish cowl is handwoven by Fiona. She first dyes the yarns using the flora of her native bushland. Each dye bath comes out slightly differently, making each cowl unique and individual. It is a completely natural process, using only the leaves, water and heat. Some may pieces may have highlights of coral, fuschia or even indigo, which will be from the residual natural dye of a previous dye bath.
Alpaca fibre is resilient and will keep its shape and softness for years.
Should you need to wash it, do so by hand only, in warm soapy water, agitating as little as possible. Squeeze out excess water by folding it in a towel and pressing down. Do not wring. Dry laid out flat. Not to be tumble dried. Iron with a cool iron, protecting it with a cotton or linen tea towel.
