Nourishment Cowl

Knit the Nourishment Cowl by Erika Field with us

January 8 - February 27, 2024

To us, nourishment means replenishment, compassion, friendship, and growth. Erika exemplified these values perfectly in her cowl design by featuring local, intentionally grown and processed yarn, and sprinkling metaphors throughout. In her words: “The bands of seed stitch represent actual and metaphorical seeds – those from which we grow plants and those from which we grow ideas and relationships. The shape of the Beam Stitch symbolizes growth and blossoming.”

We think this project is a perfect way to showcase your favorite Junction Fiber Mill yarns and more importantly, celebrate the beginning of 2024.
