SQUISHY YUMMY BEAUTIFUL
LOCAL NEW ZEALAND YARNS
This listing is for one skein of CHOICE 70/30 Merino/Silk to make the sweet Terracotta Shawl by Jessica Gore from the Sweater Collective. Choose your colour and purchase your yarn (I have loaded recommendations for this pattern), then pop over to the pattern page HERE and purchase/download this wonderful pattern.
The Terracotta Shawl was designed as a one-skein shawl project that would not only be stylish, but fun to make. Pick out a favourite 4ply yarn to enjoy this quick knit with, then drape it around your neck and keep on crafting!
This one skein wonder has great reviews on Ravelry. Most choose to use a tonal more solid yarn so the texture stands out - I have included a very light coloured speckled yarn which I think can still achieve this in addition to some lovely tonals.
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.
