SQUISHY YUMMY BEAUTIFUL
LOCAL NEW ZEALAND YARNS
This listing is for one skein of CHOICE to make this all season shawl Sandbar by Meg Gadsbey.
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.
Sandbar is an extra-wide, shallow, crescent-shaped shawl, knitted top-down from one skein of fingering yarn. Comforting garter stitch, along with a band of slipped stitches, creates a bright and breezy casual shawl. This would work well while chatting at a KAL group! And the garment would be so versatile and change moods completely depending on the colourway! Have fun.

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.
