Imagine merino, camel, cashmere, and mulberry silk together in one yarn. Yeah, it’s dreamy.
This is the stuff of the drapiest, most delicious shawl you could ever want. (Really. We try not to overstate things.)
We pair Caravan with the Corrugated Shawl by Cecelia Campochiaro from Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide No. 5: Sequences, because the sheer pleasure of knitting with this yarn is so extraordinary.
Four skeins will give you a Corrugated Shawl that you will treasure forever.
Please note: the Corrugated Shawl pattern appears in Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide No. 5: Sequences, available in both digital and print editions. Be sure to add a copy of Field Guide No. 5 to your basket at checkout!
Specs & Details
To meet Amor, the proprietor of Crave Yarn, is to love her. She’s a winning combination of quiet and exuberant, and she’s whip smart. When we met Amor for the first time, we were struck by the modest way she talked about her yarns—but we also noticed that she had a fever about what she was creating. Crave Yarn is the result of Amor’s genuine passion.
The moment we saw her glorious, rich colors and unusual blends of fiber, we knew that we needed to bring Crave Yarn to you.
We’ll let Amor explain her thinking on this absolutely delicious new yarn.
I asked a lot from Caravan:
1. I wanted it to be made exclusively with fine natural fibers.
2. I wanted it to sing luxury from the first touch and continue to delight with every delicious stitch.
3. I wanted it to be a yarn without borders, ideal for any project, even the hardest-wearing projects—sweaters and socks.
The combination of fine merino, cashmere, camel, and mulberry silk provides the hand I dreamed of. The unique mill construction provides the strength. And as a sport weight yarn that leans toward light sport it also offers welcome versatility, being a perfectly good choice for both sport weight and fingering weight projects. Ultimately, Caravan is a yarn that boasts the ability to be sweet and strong without compromise.
We should all be sweet and strong without compromise!
