Truly a one-of-a-kind piece. The base of the cowl is 80% Suri alpaca/20% merino. The pattern yarn is all hand spun fiber of 50% merino, 50% Tencel. Wear it as an infinity scarf, but also large enough to wrap around the neck twice. Hand wash, cold water, do not agitate or wring. Lay flat or hang to dry. Iron on wool setting as needed.
