We love to spin yarn and know that there are many others who do too, so we put together our very first Spinner's Kit for the ever-popular Nightshift Shawl by Andrea Mowry. We took her beautiful and easy-to-knit design and made it up in our luxurious Merino/Camel/Silk blend. This creates a very soft and drapeable shawl that you will love wearing as much as you enjoy spinning and knitting it up.
*** Please note ***
This is a handspinning kit and only contains the fiber that will need to be spun into yarn. If you are not a spinner, you may want to take a look at our Nightshift Shawl Kits that have just the yarn. They can be found here.
The knitting pattern consists of slip stitches where you carry only one color of yarn at a time. This makes for very easy and fast knitting while creating a fabric that looks much more complicated.
Each kit contains a printed copy of the pattern with a Ravelry code to download a PDF copy and 12 ounces of our hand-dyed Merino/Camel/Silk roving in ample amounts to complete the shawl as written. Instructions are included on how I spun the yarn to get the color effect you see in the shawl. It is all packaged in a nice organza bag.
The Merino Camel Silk is an elegant blend of fibers that is as soft as can be and feels great against your skin. It is easy to spin and creates a yarn that drapes beautifully. It really is the perfect fiber combination for this shawl.
