NB: We only stock a limited number of our "originals" yarn sets, which means that the yarn will most likely be dyed especially for you. In this case your order will be ready for shipment within 3-4 weeks. If you need it urgently, please send us a note before ordering to check ready-to-ship availability.
This yarn set includes 6 skeins (4 skeins of Cottage Merino and 2 skeins of KidMohair Lace) for the CHROMOPHORE shawl by Thien-Kieu Lam, published in the Winter 2020 issue of PomPom Quarterly. If you would like to purchase the magazine, too, please use this link.

CareCold hand wash recommended. Lay flat to dry.
Dyes are applied merely by hand so there is a natural variation within hanks of the same dye lot. To maintain an even appearance in larger projects I would suggest to alternate skeins while knitting.
I take great care photographing my items, but please take into account that colours might vary slightly due to different monitors.
