Orbit Cowl is the most amazing way to show off the Manos del Uruguay pair of yarns: Marla and Sami.
Kits include 2-100g hanks of coordinating colors, a printed pattern and it all comes in an organza bag.

The Pattern:
Brioche ribs change color in a swirl around a simple cowl, letting one tweedy color of Marla share the spotlight with a semi-solid Sami. The technique is much easier than it looks: all it takes is moving a ring marker over a couple stitches every few rounds.

The Yarn:
Marla and Sami are a pair of sister yarns. Marla is made from 2 strands of lighter-weight yarn that have been dyed separately and then plied together. When worked, Marla creates a marled fabric, where the colors are uniquely distributed. We've chosen high-contrast tweedy colors of Marla with their coordinating Sami semi-solid. Sami is spun of the same fiber and to the same weight as Marla, though it is dyed after plying. The yarn has a delightfully springy structure and tonal hand-dyed colors.
