Marla and Sami Collection

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. Sami, the semi-solid DK-weight sister to Marla, has a palette of 11 coordinating colors!

This "doughnut" cowl has no wrong side. It begins with a solid area of one color, then changes to a small geometric stranded pattern for awhile, then moves to the other color on its own, and finally repeats the stranded pattern. The solid areas give the eye a place to rest as well as highlighting each yarn individually.
