Our first Purl Diver Color Club yarn is here: Mantis Shrimp on the delightfully squishy Cloudgate yarn base from Lorna’s Laces! Cloudgate is a bulky weight blend of 90% superwash merino wool 10% nylon fiber, which means it’s both soft AND durable. Each skein has a generous 120 yards, so there are plenty of one- and two-skein patterns you can make with it. You can see how this vibrant colorway works up in our sample which is knit using the Roxanne Cowl pattern.
Our colorway was inspired by a photo of a mantis shrimp was taken in Komodo Nat’l Park in Indonesia while Susan’s husband Murray was diving with their son Daniel. We think the folks at Lorna’s Laces outdid themselves for this latest exclusive colorway!
