Colorwash Scarf Kit
Glorious, subtle color.
Our first glimpse of Lichen and Lace left us marveling at Megan Ingman’s deft skill at capturing nature in a skein of yarn. These small batches of merino wool superwash carry the mark of the dyer—no two skeins are exactly alike, and that’s what makes them so special.
Kirsten Kapur’s Colorwash Scarf can be made with either two colors or one.
Please note: pattern not included. The Colorwash Scarf pattern for this kit is in Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide No. 3, available in both digital and print versions. Be sure to add a copy of Field Guide No. 3 to your basket at checkout!

In a world where uniformity is altogether too easy to achieve by machine, we crave the unpredictable. Lichen and Lace is one of the yarns we have most wanted to offer, because it is anything but uniform, and that’s where we find its beauty.
Megan Ingman lives and dyes her yarns in New Brunswick, one of eastern Canada’s maritime provinces. It’s inspiring to see the work of a dyer who keeps such a close eye on the colors found in nature.
This 100% merino superwash yarn is a single, meaning it has only one ply. We’re fans of this simple yarn construction—its slightly irregular twist adds character to a handknit, and in this fingering weight, it is perfect for the Colorwash Scarf.
