Rare Imports Month 1
We didn’t go far to find our first club package. I am so excited to be working with Sweet Fiber from Canada again! I asked for her most delicious yarn, and she suggested the Silk Cashmere Lace. It is a heavy-weight lace, with 400 yards per 50 gram skein. The fibre blend is 55% silk and 45% cashmere. She chose some of her most popular colorways for this yarn: Fossil, Shipwreck and Smoke (see below). The package also includes a notion surprise also provided by Sweet Fiber).
Purchase just this month’s package for $42 each or sign up for the entire six months. Give the shop a call for details or stop by. 703-664-0344.
At 400 yards, one skein of this yarn will make a lovely shawlette or other basic accessory. Here are some project ideas: Just One of Those Things for a simple and stunning shawlette of luxury.
