Cowl ~ Japanese Indigo + Dyer's Chamomile


Ask a question

The yarn for this cozy cowl is naturally dyed and then hand knit.

Size: adult medium

Yarn: Lani's Lana 100% rambouillet wool ~ sustainably produced

Care: Hand wash warm. Lay out to dry. Do not dryclean.

I grow both Japanese Indigo (Persicaria tinctoria) and Dyer's Chamomile (Anthemis tinctoria) in my garden here in Oakland, California. The yarn was first partially dyed blue with fresh indigo leaves and then overdyed yellow in some places with Dyer's Chamomile. The result is a handsome irregular stripe of different shades of blues, greens and yellows.

There is a matching beanie knitted from the same yarn listed.
