What it is:
A cozy, alpaca cowl in soft neutral colors with a minimal stripe pattern that make think of home. 3 buttons allow the wearer to fasten the cowl in a v-shape or end-to-end.
Why we like it:
We love alpaca, being warm, and feeling like home -- even if we're far away. This cowl combines all three!
Who else might like it:
This is perfect for anyone who loves the feel of natural fibers and look of soft neutral tones. The button-cowl design ensures it is a "no muss, no fuss" staple to anyone's fall and winter wardrobe!
Note: We love the feel of a scarf right around our neck, but we know it's not for everyone. This cowl fits cozy around the neck. Please check out the measurements, to approximate how close it will fit on you.
Homesteader Alpaca Cowl
We wove this scarf in our home studio in East Tennessee using a rigid heddle loom. A rigid heddle loom is a traditional-style, table-top handloom.
After weaving, we hand sew the edges with a hemstitch to prevent raveling.
Finally, all scarves go through a process called wet-finishing. We soak the scarves in a gentle, eco-friendly rinse and let them air dry. This creates a stronger bond between the individual fibers by causing them to bloom and become tightly interlocked.
