Sacred Peaks Cowl Kit
We absolutely love all things Greenwood Fiberworks, and are delighted to carry their kit for Sara Bateman's "Sacred Peaks Cowl." The pattern was released during the virtual 2020 Flag Wool and Fiber Festival, and is inspired by the San Francisco Peaks in Flagstaff and their place as sacred ancestral lands for the native tribes in Northern Arizona.
The kit includes only the yarn. The pattern will need to be purchased separately. You may purchase her pattern on Ravelry HERE.
The cowl is made using Greenwood's DK Yakity Yak, a soft, smooth, round yarn that it is a personal favorite. All the things have been made with this yarn, including shawls, sweaters, hats, and even socks. It works up quickly because of the DK weight. The color is rich and deep with a silvery undertone. It also has great stitch definition and shows off both color work and textured knits well. It could possibly be the world's most perfect yarn!
Greenwood's semi-solid colors are kettle-dyed in small batches. This hand-dye process creates a yarn with a slight color variation throughout the skein which gives great visual interest to your project.
Yarn: 2 skeins of DK Yakity Yak (65% superwash merino, 20% yak, 15% silk, 232 yards per 100 g skein)
