These kits are designed so that you can substitute the contrast and main colors throughout the cowl as you like, making each finished project unique to you. Although there is sufficient yardage for you to complete the cowl in each kit, you may want to add additional colors of Road to China Light if you want a more diverse palette, or if you plan to re-use a color in two or more larger charts within the cowl.

LOFT is a light and bouncy soft-spun 2-ply fingering weight yarn designed by Brooklyn Tweed. It is 100% american grown wool from Wyoming-grown Targhee-Columbia sheep and spun in the woolen mills of historic Harrisville, New Hampshire. LOFT is designed with a focus on colorwork and lace, with a lightness that mimics handspun yarns.
The woolen-spinning process used to make LOFT yields a highly versatile yarn that can shift into multiple gauges with ease, from dense colorwork at 10 stitches per inch (perfect for warm, stranded mittens) on up to a luscious, lofty sport weight gauge of 6 stitches per inch, without losing fabric integrity. Available in 32 subtly heathered colors, each 50gram skein contains a very generous 275yards! Try it also with SHELTER's matched palette for interesting textural work.
