Dreaming of Weaving? Here is a perfect beginner’s project, kitted up to accompany Weaving 101, the Yarnworker School of Weaving’s first online rigid-heddle weaving course. These yarns were carefully selected for their different attributes to highlight functional considerations as you begin selecting yarns for weaving. They work up into a dreamy combination that will make this cowl your go-to accessory, complete with a hidden pocket. The pattern is available with the course.
The kit contains two yarns from The Fiber Co., conveniently wound into cakes in the perfect amounts to complete one cowl, with a bit of extra yardage for extending the length if desired. Included are 137 yards of Luma, a delicious blend of Merino wool, cotton, silk, and cashmere, in one of three color choices, and 85 yards of Aranmore comprised of Merino wool, silk, and cashmere in a creamy white with occasional flecks of pale yellow. Also included is a pack of SOAK, fragrance-free, no-rinse soap, my go-to choice for wet finishing.
