The Syíqm cowl is a wearable work of art.
This unisex organic cotton neckwarmer will fit over your head like a turtleneck and then fall with the right amount of drape. It's a smooth all-day cowl, providing coziness without being stuffy.In the words of the artist:
"When I knit, it's the embellishments, the small details, that seem the most personal. Three simple lines (blades of grass? feathers? what do you see?) that make the knitting mine, which in turn makes me more exposed, vulnerable."
Syíqm (or shyAḵem) is the Nlaka'pamuxcin word for different grasses, those that stand tall and green in the spring, and those that wave, delicate and golden, in the autumn winds.
Designed and handknit in the meadows of Lytton, BC.
