SQUISHY YUMMY BEAUTIFUL
LOCAL NEW ZEALAND YARNS
This listing is for two skeins of BEAUT to make the Rattletrack Shawl by Hanging Rock Roost. This gorgeous scarf is a super easy to remember pattern of plain garter stitch, narrow stripes and simple eyelet lace. You increase on one side and decrease on the other to produce a parallelogram that is looong for extra wrapiness. It’s so easy to wear! I usually find the centre and hang that from the back of my neck, then swing each side around the back and back down the front again. Easy peasy!
BEAUT is a worsted spun, untreated, 100% New Zealand Merino Single ply yarn. This pattern would work well with a tonal and a hand painted colourway pair or two hand painted/speckled. Choose your colour pair 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.
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.
