Angora, Qiviut & Shetland wool Cowl-December giveaway 2014

This month its about colour.....beautiful Burnt Orange mixed with some natural Shetland wool yarn for contrast. To enter you need to vote for your favourite colour combination from the two choices here; Shetland Halo yarn in Burnt Orange, with Burnt orange Angora/Qiviut yarn & Natural Moorit. 
The second choice is this: Yarns as above with a contrast yarn of Natural Black Shetland wool.
