A little cowl in a luxurious yarn with deep, rich colours is as much a neck decoration as it is a neck warmer. The cashmere yarn makes it soft and gentle on the skin while, at the same time, reflecting the vibrant colours of the hand-dyed yarn.
Recalling the deeps woods in winter which manage to retain the only colours in an otherwise neutral landscape, this piece with its lacy border is both warm and feminine.
