Among certain African tribes, strings of beads are worn in colourful coils around the neck, often covering the shoulders.
Regarded as signs of wealth and status, these decorative, multi-coloured beads form part of the traditional costume. The Kenya cowl reflects this common version of African jewellery.
Worked in the round, from the top down, the Kenya cowl uses a single 100 g. skein of a handpainted silk and wool blend. It can be worked to any length you wish and can be extended to cover the shoulders even more.
