Emma's Yarn "Wispy Haze" Kit

$ 64.00

The yarnstory: 

Sometimes a custom color comes around based on a personal story…

My niece, Cayanne, is getting married this fall in the Bahamas. I started a wedding shawl for her, but I just wasn’t feeling the pattern and yarn pairing that I had put together. So when I saw an email from Emma’s Yarns about their new “Wispy Haze” yarn packs, I knew it was time to abandon project #1 and cast this on instead!

There were just two problems:

  1. The yarn packs included mohair, and I’m allergic
  2. I wanted the exact shade of the Bahamas water!   

So I reached out to Emma’s, and we collaborated to make a yarn pack with their Silky Singles base + (instead of mohair) an amazing Suri Alpaca + Silk. And they dyed the perfect new shade… “Cayanne’s Wedding” was born!

Emma's Super Silky and Suri Silk yarns are the perfect pairing for this crescent-shaped shawl from JSTDesigns.  Light and airy, the shawl knits up quickly on US 7 (4.5mm) needles and floats over your shoulders for the little bit of extra warmth on chilly evenings.  

The shawl uses short rows to create wispy bursts interspersed with rows of garter stitch using both of your yarns.  Simply stunning! The pattern is available on Ravelry.

Your kit includes one skein of Emma's Yarn Super Silky, 80% Superwash Merino Wool, 20% Silk, 100g, 400 yds (366m) and one skein of Emma's Yarn Suri Silk, 74% Baby Suri Alpaca, 26% Silk, 50g, 328 yds (300m).

Note:  Yarn photos show Super Silky paired with Marvelous Mohair.  Your kit will contain Super Silky paired with Suri Silk which is being dyed specially for Knit Stars.
