A note from the designer:
For one glorious week in June near the Solstice, wild roses of the Tanana Valley open to the world. Their sweet scent intoxicates the air, and everyone smiles more, laughs more and loves more as we wrap ourselves with the beauty of Summer. This is the time to breathe deeply and fill our hearts and bodies with Summer’s gifts to carry with us into darker, colder times.
Alaska is famous for Her long, dark winters, and these fleeting moments of summer are all the more sweet because of them. This cowl is for my loved ones in Alaska and anyone who may need a reminder of that gift when Winter begins to feel long.
