NEW ARRIVAL! Colors of Reywa Cowl Kits

We are thrilled to offer the Colors of Reywa Cowl in the shop and our online store! We fell in love with this gorgeous cowl and the ethical work Reywa Fibers does to support the fiber industry in Tibet. We have a limited number of these kits available, and you can check out our shop sample to see it knit up and feel the softness of the yak down.

From the colorways of the yarn to the geometric motif, the Colors of Reywa Cowl is a tribute to the nomads who roam the Tibetan Plateau and to the yaks which sustain them.

Designed by Rebecca Hall, the cowl is knit from 13 mini-cakes of Reywa Fiber’s Harmony yarn, which is a light, sport-weight blend of 50% Yak Down, 50% Fine Wool. Each nature-inspired colorway evokes an element of the Plateau’s rough and rugged terrain, from its rocky, snow-covered peaks to its sweeping grassy hillsides teaming with summer wildflowers. For her design, Rebecca was inspired by the the colorful geometric patterns found in Tibetan architecture, rugs, and fabric.

Reywa Fiber’s 100% yak down yarns are hypoallergenic, will never pill, are warmer than merino wool, get softer and softer with each wear, and develop a lovely halo over time.

Kit Price: $128. Kit includes:

  • Printed pattern
  • 13 mini-cakes in 12 colors
  • 700+ yards of 50/50 yak/wool yarn
  • Reusable kit bag

Meet Our Shop Sample: The Claudia Shawl, Knit in Yankee Stride MCN

Our newest shop sample is this gorgeous Claudia Shawl by Christina Körber-Reith. Knit in four colors of Yankee Stride, a luscious Merino/Cashmere/Nylon blend from Yankee Dyer, the finished shawl has a bold, modern look with drape for days.

Although the colorwork makes this shawl look like a complicated knit, it is a simple triangular shape that uses slipped stitches to create the ‘plaid’ effect. Once you have the stitch pattern down, it quickly becomes a mindless knit.

The Yankee Stride yarn is a perfect match for this pattern, with the touch of cashmere to make this a luxury knit piece and give it beautiful drape. The rich color palette we love from Yankee Dyer means that you can find a stunning color palette that you love, whether soft and romantic pinks and greys, or bold and bright purples and blues.

Once you curl up in this shawl, you won’t want to take it off–it’s a delightful wrap for cozy fall evenings and cold winter days.

We’d love to help you pick out your own custom color combo for this stunning shawl!
