For this ombré cowl I've used yarn that I picked up at our local market, by what I believe is a company that has gone out of business! However, there are plenty of alternatives out there (I've picked a couple and added them to the "materials" section of the pattern). The key is to stick to different colours within the same family, so to get an Autumnal look you should go for "warm" shades of red, orange, and yellow. For extra warmth and softness, it's a good idea to look for something that has at least some pure wool content (mine was 50% wool, 50% acrylic).
