SQUISHY YUMMY BEAUTIFUL
LOCAL NEW ZEALAND YARNS
This listing is for one skein of BEAUT to make the Igagasi Shawl by Knit Share Love's Clare Devine. This pattern has some clever advice about meterage and getting the size shawl you want. It's perfect for a beginner and soothing for the more experienced.
BEAUT is a worsted spun 100% New Zealand Merino Single ply yarn. This pattern would work equally well with a hand painted yarn or a tonal. Choose your colour and purchase your yarn (I have loaded colourway recommendations for this pattern), then pop over to the pattern page HERE and purchase/download this wonderful pattern.
Clare writes, "The soft undualting waves of Igagasi and the soothing garter stitches bring me the same sense of calm as the ocean. I was searching for a soothing knit, something to curl up with for a few peaceful moments within the chaos of life - simple stitches, calming rows … I found it here, I hope you do too."
"Igagasi is worked sideways from a single skein of yarn. The undualting waves gradually increase in size to the centre point and then decrease gradually until your beautiful shawl is finished."

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.
