Can Samba: The Yowler Project

The Yowler, a twice-removed cousin from the Can Samba Howler. Knit, knot, plait, pom pom, crochet or embroider a mini piece of yarn art to create the first-ever community Yowler. Dedicate your artwork and we’ll post it up over the festival weekend as we add your piece to the beast! When the #nsfYowler is released at an event near you, people will come from afar to admire this crazy, collaborative, community, creature!
