    We have put together some kits in Rustic Heather Sport by Lichen & Lace for this beautiful shawl!

    Your Kit includes:
    6 skeins of Rustic Heather Sport (6 x 197m, 56g)
    (Optional) PDF Pattern delivered to your inbox via Ravelry 

    You will also need:
    100 cm / 40” (or longer) circular needle in size needed to obtain gauge listed.
    Suggested needle size: 3.5 mm / US #4.

    Wingspan approx 205 cm / 80.75”.
    Depth approx 70 cm / 27.5”.

    Measured after blocking.
    Loopy leaf pattern on Needle A: 19 sts x 30 rows = 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4”.
    Loopy flower pattern on Needle A: 19 sts x 34 rows = 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4”

    This beautiful, single ply, non-superwash yarn has been minimally processed and sheepy, retaining all the best qualities of real wool. Spun from 100% Canadian fleeces from New Brunswick, each skein is a custom blend of Suffolk, Dorset, Cheviot, Romney and Rideau Arcott.

    This yarn is purposefully rustic, though it gets much softer with washing. Wonderful for stitch definition for your textured knits, but interesting enough on it's own for basic stocking stitch since the colourways are truly heathered.

    And since it's not been over processed, you can expect both drape and elasticity, with a touch of natural sheen.

    Some shades are natural, and some are hand-dyed over a heathered base to give wonderful semi-tonal results. There's no machine-dyed flatness here!

    Hand dyed yarn inspired by the quiet beauty of the forest, marsh, and sea, from Sackville, New Brunswick.

    We are especially excited by their minimally processed, custom yarn bases, sympathetically hand dyed by Megan and her team in beautiful New Brunswick.
