Forty miles east of Portland on the Columbia River, the Bonneville Dam was built to power New Deal economic development for humans but presented a literally insurmountable barrier for fish. Fish ladders were built to help hundreds of thousands of salmon and other fish make their spawning runs upriver each year.
Evoking the stair-step structure of the fish ladders, this cowl uses a triple-crochet stitch and long chains to create a loose, airy, netlike fabric — more suitable for catching well-accessorized humans than speeding salmon.

This yarn is dyed by hand and will vary from skein to skein and batch to batch. Each one is an unique work of art full of subtle variation and beauty, so your skein will differ from the one pictured. To achieve the most even possible color distribution, consider alternating skeins while working your project.
Please buy enough for your entire project all at once. We will do our best to select skeins from the same dye lot or, if there is no dye lot, skeins that visually match. If you add multiple skeins of the same yarn to your cart you'll be prompted at checkout to select how to proceed if we have concerns about skeins matching.
While colors shown are accurate to the best of our ability, computer monitors and dye lots both vary so the skeins you receive may differ from what is shown.
