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 3 skeins in total - 2 skeins Tough Sock and 1 skein KidMohair Lace, perfect for the SLICE OF LIGHT shawl by Susanne Sommer.
The shawl is knit in different textures and gauges. It starts with a large-gauge biased triangle, knit with one strand of fingering weight and one strand of lace weight mohair held together in a large rib pattern. After picking stitches up from one of the triangle‘s sides, the shawl is then knit top-down at a smaller gauge in one- and two-color brioche and garter stitch short-row stripes. An i-cord surrounds the entire shawl for a clean and finished look.
The mix of mohair and fingering weight yarn and the play with gauges make this a large and airy shawl with lots of drape – a perfect slice of light on cooler summer nights or whenever you need a wooly hug.
The original shawl was knit with Walk Tough Sock in Caterpillar and Grunge Pop and Walk KidMohair Lace in Caterpillar.

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.
