Mount Rainier Cowl, Reversible

$7.00

This cowl is designed for and with my husband, who like me is in love with the lonely mountain on our Seattle vista. Mount Rainier is the central motif, surrounded by geometric pine trees along each border. The vertical lines add a masculine feel, while representing the signature Seattle Rain. The interior pattern allows for a reversible cowl with double thickness for warmth.
