This yarn kit contains a total of approximately 2000 yards of yarn in two colorways. The background color is 1000 yards of a beautiful soft grey colored yarn. The pattern yarn also is 1000 yards of a gradient colorway of blues, magenta, purpley blues, and black. The gradient yarn just seems to flow through the wonderful pattern called Crazed Scandinavian Cowl by Wendy Johnson (which can be found on Ravelry). I have a limited set of these kits. I never got bored knitting this due to the ever changing patterns and the movement of the colored yarn. This kit is for the yarn and not the completed cowl.
