Biscotte Yarns

Knitting knit | Slipstravaganza shawl by Stephen West

Lately, a lovely customer sent us photos of her Slipstravaganza shawl, a Stephen West pattern knitted with our hand-dyed yarns ♥

We loved the result so much that we decided to offer this yarn as a knitting kit so that you too can make this beautiful shawl from Westknit!

A special thank you to Josée, the lovely knitter in question who agreed to meet our photographer for a special photo shoot and who accepted that we share these photos with you!!!

Please note: the pattern is not included, you have to order it on Ravelry: Slipstravaganza shawl pattern from Westknit

      *SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT NATURAL DYES : Due to their artisanal nature, hand-dyed wool skeins can be different from each other even if they both come from the same dye bath. By adding to the equation the use of vegetable dyes, you must know that there can be a great variation of the colors between the different lots. Since plant dyes are highly dependent on mother nature, variations can come from the plants themselves, the season, where the plant was grown and harvested and how tannins are stored. That said, natural colors are living colors that, once knit, magically develop and blend well together.
