Fall 2019 I attended my first “Rhinebeck”. Wow.


What a weekend. It was a blur. Shared with friends old and new. Of course not enough photos taken BUT my stash was filled with lovely additions and each with a story. And the yarn used for Road to Rhinebeck is no exception.


While enjoying the final minutes on Saturday of the NY Sheep and Wool Festival, the grounds were cooling with a fall chill in the air and the barns open but empty of the crowds. I made my last stop of my trip to visit Kelsey at Primrose Yarn Co. Usually it’s shoulder to shoulder, but for those last 5 minutes I had the honor of enjoying all the yarn all by myself. Spending the last of my extended budget, I knew these three colorways were destined to be together.


Knit flat in worsted weight, this cowl takes a journey with different textures and colors used together to create a beautiful cowl that will change a little every time you wear it. Looking a little different with each styling, you will be ready for your trek again or for the first time on the Road to Rhinebeck.


Designed for worsted weight yarn. Cowl uses 421 yd / 385 m.
