FO Friday: 3 Color Cashmere Cowl

I finished another cowl! This one was my predominant travel knitting project for June, when I went to the TNNA show in DC and also flew to Kansas City for a Royals game.
I think this yarn has been in my stash for something like 4 years now; it's Pure Cashmere DK from Lotus Yarns, and I have to say that while it is very nice to work with, I am not totally convinced that it's really cashmere. I suppose it could be a low grade cashmere, but the mink-less mink yarn flap of last year doesn't inspire confidence in the accuracy for their labeling.
At any rate, I suppose it doesn't matter - I don't even remember what I paid for the yarn, which was probably something close to wholesale because I purchased it cash and carry at TNNA. It was still nice to work with, and it's soft and warm. And really, as long as you enjoy it, isn't that all that matters?
I used my favorite tool, the Knitter's Pride Knit Blockers along with some blocking wires for a nice, efficient blocking.
I really enjoyed knitting the pattern, and it's super easy to wear - this will be a warm addition to my winter wear!
