Lavender Lune Worsted 2 Ply
Sam, a home-schooling mom in the north Minnesota wilderness, is in love with nature and all of the colors it has to offer. Through her dyeing magic at Lavender Lune Yarn Co., she brings the colors of nature to you.
And you will fall in love with all of these colors on her Worsted 2-Ply! Sleek and smooth, this merino / alpaca worsted yarn offers excellent drape and is durable enough for heavy use items. It is amazing in this gorgeous shawl, "Persimmon Branch" by Tif Neilan.
The inspiration behind this design is the beautiful Persimmon tree, with its delicate branches and gorgeous fruit. This crescent shaped shawl / wrap features a combination of garter stitch, slip stitch textures and eyelets, to pay homage to the natural beauty of the Persimmon tree.
Finished off with a delicate picot bind off and optional tassels or pom-poms to adorn the ends, Persimmon Branch is an engaging and enjoyable knit that can be worn in a variety of ways.
Rachel knitted the "Persimmon Branch" in colors "Frances Poldark"(MC) and "Don't Talk" (CC) modeled on beautiful Beth, our Membership Programs Manager.

- "So Stellar" (our custom color!) with "Oatmeal Stout"
