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.

- Printed pattern
- 13 mini-cakes in 12 colors
