Gorgeous Kit, Dreaming of the Seashore
This Gorgeous Kit contains all you need to knit the enclosed pattern, Dreaming of the Seashore
This Eco-friendly, sustainable wool knit kit has 4 x 100g skeins of naturally hand dyed gorgeous yarn with a pattern to make the Dreaming Of the Seashore shawl.
It was inspired by a walk on the beach near where I live, watching the tide go out and the ripples on the beach and the waves.
The kit contains 4 skeins of yarn and pattern in a gift box. The rectangle shawl pattern features an ombre effect as the colours change from the palest colour to the darkest. Each colour collection has been carefully selected for you to blend and tone beautifully.
The yarns are hand dyed in my Gorgeous Yarns dye kitchen here in Cornwall, some with organically grown dye stuffs from my garden.
Each yarn is 4ply/sport weight. The kit contains 4 skeins, of 100g each, 400g total.
