There's no reason not to be both warm AND stylish. Keep toasty in this ski resort inspired neck cowl.
The Aspen Neck Cowl can be worn draped around the neck or pulled up as a hoodie. So very perfect for avoiding hat hair or for wearing with scoop neck tops.
This design works best in alpaca because of the yarn's ability to drape beautifully.
