As we tiptoe out of winter and creep softly into spring, stay warm, but not weighted down, with our lofty Jasmine Scarf. Each row you knit cultivates columns of caliper cables, like a budding vine, mimicking the world’s awakening.
Caught smack between the seasons, we picked our incredibly soft and gently rustic Flax Down, a beautiful blend of baby alpaca, extra fine merino and linen. In Heirloom White, these climbing cables glow with fresh life! Happy spring to all! -Laura
