This Week at String: Zealana Cozi Mitts and Cowl
Zealana has been part of the String family of yarns for a very long time and their newest yarn, Cozi is a welcome addition.
We can’t contain our excitement when new yarn arrives at String Yarns, in fact, we started swatching with Cozi before all the boxes were even open! The new color palettes all work so well together.
The Zealana Cozi Mitts and Cowl set, designed by Lisa Hoffman, offers a fun combination of patterns worked in this incredibly soft yarn. The length of the cowl was carefully calculated so that all of the different patterns show. The cowl’s height allows for full neck coverage to keep Arctic winds at bay.
Cozi is a unique blend of merino, New Zealand brushtail possum down, baby alpaca and nylon. The combination of fibers and the fine weight works up well in this colorful pattern, and there is a soft, downy-like drape that feels wonderful against your skin. The Zealana Cozi Mitts and Cowl are fun to make and the perfect finishing touch to any winter outfit.
