I always tell my customers that you can never have enough cowls. If you live in a cold climate like I do, you probably have 175 days worth of wearing cowls. My goal is to have a different cowl for each of those days. Not only are they warm but they can also be worn as a fashion statement. And since I travel around New York City my color scheme is neutral. It has to go with black.

Silky Alpaca Lace
70% alpaca, 30% silk
Silky Alpaca Lace is a beautiful blend of fibers, spun into a gossamer yarn that knits into amazing lightweight pieces.
The alpaca in this yarn provides warmth and a soft halo; the silk adds a subtle sheen to the knitted stitches. Worked in lace with larger needles, Silky Alpaca Lace makes lovely, light-as-air shawls, garments and accessories.
