Just arrived all the way from Australia! Himalaya is a DK weight yarn, spun using a luxurious blend of 80% Merino and 20% Cashmere, making it incredibly soft and warm. It’s perfect for cold weather knitting!
I am absolutely in love with this shawl from Stephen West. It would work up quickly and beautifully in this yarn, on US #7 needles, requiring 5 skeins.
For a project that’s a bit lighter on the wallet, check out Pasha by Jane Richmond. The lovely drape in Himalaya would work well in this lace hat/toque, which can be worn slouchy or with the brim folded over. It requires just one skein of Himalaya.
