Desamour Designs X Disturbing the Fleece

This cowl pattern was designed for Radicle Threads Magazine. 50% of the proceeds from the sales of the cowl pattern and $10 from every kit sold until March 31st, 2023 will go towards the magazine.

When designing this cowl, Fatimah and Elisabeth really wanted to be intentional with each stitch and with the yarn selection. They chose to juxtapose textured and smooth stitches in a uneven manner. None of the sections are the same size. This is a reflection of how our community is diverse, yet a bit similar. The pop of color was added using a yarn weight that is a bit heavier than the yarn used for the rest of the cowl to reflect what Radicle Threads Magazine represents in the Fiber and Textile industry. A little pop of sunshine, going against the grain, paving a way.

Care Instructions: Machine wash gentle. Lay flat to dry. (Hand washing is STRONGLY recommended to maintain the color and quality of your finished piece.)

*NOTES - All companies, including companies who purchase dyed yarns from a mill can have a problem with bleeding or transfer of colors. This mostly occurs in blues and teals, but can occur with any very dark and saturated color. Every effort has been made to ensure that this yarn does not bleed. The color in this yarn has been set BUT you may or may not see an insignificant amount of color exhaust in the water during your first wash but nothing thereafter. This is common with most hand dyed yarns and again, hand washing is strongly suggested to maintain the color and quality of your finished piece.

Colors may vary slightly from the picture, due to lighting conditions, camera calibration and your computer monitor settings.
