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 contains 5 skeins of Bliss and 1 skein of KidMohair Lace, perfect for the SQUIGGLE & STRIPE shawl by Stephen West, published in Westknits Bestknits Number 3 - Shawl Evolution.
This squiggly shawl was inspired by the Speckle & Pop shawl with its graphic short rows and eyelets. This new shawl features three colors that wave and wiggle using increases and decreases. Short row wedges are highlighted with eyelet rows using a mohair silk contrast color. The squiggles are framed with graphic short row stripes for the wingtips, so you can wrap and tie the playful shawl around your neck.
The original shawl was knit with one skein each of:
Walk Bliss in Apricot, Goldenrod, Masala, Marine and Apollo
Walk KidMohair Lace in Pomodoro

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.
