We're in Ply Magazine!

This beautiful shawl is designed and made by the very talented Christopher Kale, and has been published in the Winter 2017 edition of Ply Magazine. The fiber, of course, is Under Dutch Skies BFL!

Christopher details his method for blending fiber to create subtle and flowing gradients, and then gives us a great shawl pattern to follow. I can't wait to start my own project.

I've created a Ravelry group where we can share our projects and photos.  You can buy these exact colors here in the web shop (or use other colors of course).  Come on over and join in the PAL (Project-A-Long)!

Alpaca Silk in the house!

I'm excited to add this amazingly soft and silky 50/50 Alpaca / Silk blended fiber to the shop. Those who have seen me in person at markets know how incredible this fiber is, and now I've added it to the web shop so everyone can try it out.

And at only $14 for 100g (3.5 oz.) it's a bargain!
