    About Ailm

    Ailm (named for the Celtic symbol for strength, endurance, and healing) is inspired by the craggy-faced mountains in the Hudson River Valley. Hike any trail along the Hudson River and you’ll find rock-faced walls challenging you to find the pitted hand and foot holds up to the summit. Ailm mimics the charming natural obstacle courses with repeating antler and rope cables that flow seamlessly in and out of the ribbing.

    Covered in handsome cables, this scarf is incredibly soft and cozy, as well as light and airy. Worked from end-to-end, Ailm is fully charted and easy to memorize. An integrated I-cord edge worked at the same time results in a perfectly polished finish at bind off.

    Designed for Hudson + West Co's Forge.
