SQUISHY YUMMY BEAUTIFUL
LOCAL NEW ZEALAND YARNS
This listing is for two skeins of CHOICE to make this modern, drapey shawl by Amy van de Laar of Baroque Pearls. A dramatic yet light wrap for transitional seasons, the Hextile Wrap is knit on the bias for maximum drape and length. Its unfussy stitch patterns are a perfect vehicle for showing off your favourite fingering weight yarn (you will only need two precious skeins)!
The stitch pattern is intuitive to knit and easy to memorise, with triangular lace ‘tiles’ nesting together to form a pattern of hexagons on the garter stitch background.
CHOICE is a 70/30 Merino/Silk - a winning ration of bounce and squish to drape and shine. Choose your colour and purchase your yarn here (I have loaded colourway recommendations for this pattern), then pop over to the pattern page HERE and purchase/download this wonderful pattern.
Poetic, rich colour on sumptuous non-superwash New Zealand yarns: Merino, Corriedale, Merino-Cross, Romney, from the grower to the mill to the dyer - connect your final object back to it’s origin & incorporate the story of the yarn into your own. This is our definition of luxury.
Yarn is the best. It makes the stores who sell it, and the people who buy it happy. It’s sustainable, and supports hard working people in smaller communities trying to slow things down while the world speeds up. All around it’s an amazing, natural product.
Prosper Yarn is small, local, ethical, and socially minded. We use New Zealand grown and milled yarn bases. We do not support mulesing. We use as little fresh water as possible, and fully exhaust our locally mixed professional acid dyes.
Prosper does not use Super Wash yarn bases.
