If you’re anything like me, as soon as the end of summer is on the horizon, you’re already dreaming of warm wooly winter projects, even though it’s WAY too hot to work on them.
So for the August Wonderland Box, I decided to compromise with a big cozy wrap knit up in heat wave-friendly fibre. This Diamond Luxury Mulberry Linen is an absolute dream to work with. The alpaca/silk/linen blend feels luxurious on the needles, and drapes beautifully when worn. And whether the shawl is wrapped around your neck as a scarf in cooler weather, or hugging your shoulders as you sit by the campfire, the timeless goldenrod colour makes it a staple piece for all seasons.
And I suspect I’m also not alone in struggling to keep my skin happy with the combination of summer sweat, and frequent marks wearing. So as a special gift, this box also includes a face mask set by the Ontario-based indie business, Handmade by High! The masks are made from Canadian glacial clay, and are suited for all skin types. Each packages contains enough to treat yourself 4-5 times, to see you through the worst of the weather.
We have had so many requests for this box, that we have launched it as knitting kit! Click here to see the new colours !
