This colorwork cowl was designed with Yankee Rock Farm's Finn yarn in natural colors. Colin and Siri are expert shearers and farmers; their Finnsheep produce gorgeous silvery gray and pristine white worsted weight yarn that inspired this nod to Nordic design. And the cowl's pattern works equally well in the rich colors of Green Mountain Spinnery's Mewesic yarn, which uses a blend of natural and dyed-in-the-fleece fiber to produce a nuanced color palette.
Sample 1: Yankee Rock Farm Finn yarn, natural gray and white (one skein each)
Sample 2: Green Mountain Spinnery Mewesic, in colorways Atlantis and Mean Mr. Mustard (one skein each)
Main color: approximately 140 yards
Contrast color: approximately 55 yards
