Amy from While Wearing Heels shows how she recreated the look of a swirled faux fur cowl from Anthropologie, but sized for her young daughter. She used pink minky fur (the kind with the little swirls in the fur) left over from a pig costume she made for her little girl. It looks so snuggly wrapped around her neck!! The piece was just 27″ x 16″. I believe that minky is 54″ wide, which would give you enough to make 2 cowls out of half a yard. To make one in an adult size, just use a larger piece of minky. You can find the tutorial over at While Wearing Heels.
