Zebra cowl from the black and white Collection Upside-Down is catch for many lovers of these two colors’ combintaion. It looks great with black, white/ecru or gray clothing. Suitable for work and elegant outfits, but also may be worn as casual or with leather jackets.
The cowl is made of very interesting Peruvian wool of variable thickness, which gives the effect of ordered chaos – from thin thread to thick and back. The pattern is arranged in black and white stripes, resembling the color of a zebra. It is knitted in a way that gives it flexibility, so you can wear it loosely, wrap it in different ways, and even put it on your head during cold and rainy weather. It is seamless, so it can be worn on both sides or formed to show both variations.
How to care for Peruvian wool?
- One of the advantages of pure wool is that it does not absorb odors – it is recommended to ventilate the product instead of washing (read more about wool properties)
- In necessity of washing:
- Soak in lukewarm water with a small amount of detergent for wool
- Gently knead
- After a while, rinse in lukewarm water
- Do not wrink it
- Do not rub
- Remove excess water by rolling into a towel
- Dry flat on a towel shaping the form
- Do not iron
- Can be cleaned chemically.
Note: I try to take pictures that best represent the actual color of the product, while its shades may vary depending on a monitor and a device. None of the white/natural wools is optically white due to the natural shade of the fiber that falls in the ecru.
