Neoclassical Wrap

Here’s our latest project we just can’t get enough of. The Neoclassical Wrap. This gorgeous poncho wrap can be made with either 12 mm or 15 mm needles in three sizes, but even the small fits everyone. It just doesn’t hang as low.

The super fun part is it’s yarn held double or triple allowing a depth of colour and texture. it’s also a super stash buster. Pattern available in store with purchase of yarn. I’ll post a few other versions over the next couple of days, so you can see the possibilities. Make this for $50 and up depending on yarn choices and size. Here we have used 12 mm an combined Ultra Alpaca Chunky with Independence, a Spincycle heavy worsted hand-dyed.

The beautiful Zealana Air pattern book has arrived in store, along with new colours of this ultra soft, durable, and pill-resistant yarn that is lighter and warmer than 100% cashmere. AIR features 40% of down from the brushtail possum fiber, combined with 40% cashmere and 20% mulberry silk.

Just one ball is enough for the Leaf Panel Beret shown above, while the striped shawl shown below takes 2 balls each of 2 colours.
