Froth Shawl Design Using 12 Naturally-Dyed Minis

  • A multicolored striped shawl.

Hello crafty people!

I have a new shawl design called Froth that uses either three full-sized fingering-weight skeins (100 grams each) OR… drumroll… 12 mini skeins in naturally-dyed colors!

The mini skein sets are in my fingering weight Superwash Merino and nylon blend and feature colors from nature like Avocado, Blueberry, Cochineal, Logwood, Chlorophyll (from algae!), Sand Cherry, Indigo and Madder Root, just to name a few.

The mini skein sets are available for preorder in my shop and will be ready to ship in 1-2 weeks. Whats more, is the pattern for Froth is included in your mini skein set as well as free shipping to the continental United States. Yay! Treat yourself or know someone who loves natural products? This would be a lovely gift to give.

About the pattern:
Froth is a celebration of color. A simple repeated lace pattern is worked at an accelerated increase, accentuates the blending of colors and shapes this triangular shawl. Use 12 mini skeins or three full-sized skeins.

Sign-ups are open for the Botanically Dyed Yarn of the Month Club

  • Blue and yellow yarn.

Hello! My name is Vanessa Ewing and I own my own hand dyed yarn business called Cape May Fiber Company. My hand dyed yarns are inspired by the sea and shore where I grew up. Taking my fine arts degree and my knowledge of yarns and fibers, my goal is to produce extraordinary colors on yarns that bring joy and comfort to those who knit and wear them. I use traditional acid dye as well as botanical dye to produce one of a kind, small batch colorways.

My newest ad(venture) is an exciting new club, my Botanically Dyed Yarn of the Month Club. Signups are on a running basis, which guarantees you will have a full year of color.
