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

Reywa Fibers is a small, family-owned business dedicated to helping the Tibetan people benefit directly from the development and sale of the fiber their animals produce. Profits are invested into Tibetan communities. To learn more, visit Reywa Fibers online.

Tibetan architecture inspired the geometric designs of the Colors of Reywa Cowl
The colors of the yarn are inspired by the colors of nature in the Tibetan Plateau.
Be sure to pick up your Colors of Reywa Kit from us and treat yourself to a gorgeous design, indulge in a luxurious yarn, and support a socially-conscious fiber company.

Bundle up in colorful splendor with our new cowl pattern!

An easy project doesn’t have to be boring! Our new cowl pattern, designed by Beth Knarr for Knit Locally, features modern colorful stripes in a pattern that is beginner-friendly and fun to knit.

“A Cowl of a Different Color” can be knit as long cowl (perfect to double-up for warmth, or wear long to show off all of the colors) or a scarf. It is knit from one “21 Color Kit” from Blue Sky Fibers, as well as 3 skeins of Woolstok in a main color of your choice (we used Highland Fleece.)

If you purchase your yarn at Knit Locally, the pattern is included for FREE!

While the pattern includes the order of colors that we used, it also has a space for you to write in your own custom color order.

The pattern takes its name from the color-changing horse featured in the classic movie, “The Wizard of Oz.”
