"Farouche" is French for "wild, untamed." Even though this exquisite yarn distinguishes itself by its softness and its brilliance, the name expresses perfectly the very special flair surrounding this blend - a connection of mysterious, gleaming silk with the finest baby camel from the endless steppes of Mongolia. Carefully and lovingly hand-dyed in the ateliers of Nature's Luxury, FAROUCHE presents itself in a beautiful colour palette of remarkable depth. As each skein is hand-dyed, we recommend alternating skeins for a most even result.
Cecelia Campochiaro created her stunning Rizumu Shawl for Knit Stars 3.0 and has been kind enough to allow us to include a copy with your purchase of FAROUCHE. You'll be treated to her ingenious sequence knitting technique that is so much fun it's hard to put down. You'll need 1 skein each of two colors and size 3 needles. Add a note to your order for us to include your free pattern.
And Martina Behm plays with two colors of FAROUCHE in her Areas Shawl, a relaxing garter stitch piece with loads of visual interest. You'll need size 3 needles. The pattern is available for purchase on ravelry.com.
