I put these three skeins together to be used for any of the wonderful three-skein shawl patterns right now. The colorways are Monet, Carnevale, and Purple Heather. The purples all came out of the same dye pot, so they will look fabulous together and fade so nicely from one to the next.
Here are a few pattern suggestions that would look great with this trio of yarn:
- Shake It Up by Anna Johanna
- Free Your Fade by Andrea Mowry
- Impressionists Shawl by Helen Stewart
- Suburban Wrap by Joji Locatelli
I used my Sparkly Merino Sock base for each of these. It's made of 92% superwash merino and 8% sparkly lurex.
This listing is for all three of the pictured skeins together.
Each skein contains 409 yards and 4 oz of yarn.
I recommend washing these by hand or machine in cold water and air drying them.
PROCESS AND PACKAGING
Each skein of yarn is spun or dyed by me with loving care and contains a label with the yarn facts shown above. Your yarn is wrapped in tissue paper and shipped promptly, making a great presentation if you are giving it as a gift to your favorite fiber artist--even if that happens to be you!
Unless otherwise specified, your yarn will come as a hank, which is basically a large loop. This is the best way to store yarn because there’s no tension being placed on it. Before you begin to use it, however, you will need to wind it into a ball or cake or you will end up with a tangled mess. The best way to do this is with a swift and ball winder. However, you can use the arms of a patient friend or just put your yarn over two dining chairs back to back and wind it into a ball by hand. If you don’t have a swift and you plan to use the yarn fairly soon, I would be happy to wind your yarn into a cake for you at no extra charge. Just mention it in your note to seller when you check out.
MY GIFT TO YOU
As a token of my appreciation, I would be happy to include your choice of either a sprig of fresh rosemary from my organic garden or a handmade felt ball infused with essential lavender oil with your order. Both of these smell wonderful and are natural moth deterrents. Just let me know if you would like one and which one you would prefer in the note to seller when you check out.
