It’s time to get cozy!
This month’s box comes from a super fun collaboration with Amaranth Fibres. Morgan dyed up a gorgeous jewel-tone set of roving minis, absolutely perfect for rainbow thrums. Her fibre is paired with a 100% wool yarn in a lovely soft ivory, private labelled just for us.
We’ll be making thrum mittens, with a quick and easy pattern that’s great for folks who are new to this technique. The result is the thickest, warmest, coziest mittens, so you’ll be prepared for even the coldest Canadian winters. And the pattern is totally customizable: you can do stripes like I did, or alternate every thrum (as seen on the pdf), or you can get creative with your own design.
And for additional protection against the harsh, cold weather, I’ve included a bottle of hand lotion from Soak. This Toronto-based, women-run company has expanded on their line of rinse-free wool wash to include all kinds of useful things for knitters, and I’m entirely in love.
