As soon as I saw this lovely shawl by Rosemary (Romi) Hill, I knew we had to get some yarn together for a kit! And a short talk with Kelly, dyer extraordinaire from The Unique Sheep (TUS) and Voila!
Please be sure to get your pattern directly via Romi's Ravelry page. What we offer here is some specially dyed kits to knit this with.
This particular pattern was written for some specific mini skeins plus a fuller skein. And though we are not offering the same yarn or colors that Romi has in her original, we are very pleased with what we have put together.
You can see our kits in the inset photos on the top picture and again below that. Romi's shawl is shown as well so you can get an idea of the design.
The yarn that Kelly use is Luna, a 75/20/5 blend of superwash merino/ nylon/ stellina. The stellina in Luna is a lovely silver, that adds wonderful highlights.
Each mini-skein set consists of five skeinettes of 50 yards each for a total of 250 yards of Luna, gradually changing colors.
Each Contast skein is a fat 150g skein of 654 yards.
So each kit gives you well more yardage than you'll need.
The Gradiance mini-skein set is a colorway we are calling Fairy Circle. This combines warm and cool neutrals in a wonderful mix, ranging froma pale grey, deepning int beige, brown, and then taupe.
The Contrast skein is a delicious silver gray, a bit darker than the initial gray of the Fairy Circle so it will stand out wonderfully against each of the hues.
Here the Gradiance mini-skeins are another new colorway we have named Lancelot. These move froma pale moss into a deeper green and then a steel blue.
The Contrast skein is a wonderful rich sky blue, again deeper than the blue of Lancelot and thus able to contrast well with them all.
