Wonderfully warm and squishy, the Bywater cowl is the perfect accessory for keeping warm during cold Shire winters. What Hobbit wouldn’t want such a practical and stylish cowl? It can keep neck, nose, and ears warm, and the reversible fabric allows one to give one’s neighbors the impression of owning more cowls than one actually does, inevitably boosting respectability in the neighborhood.
