April Classic Box Review

April's Classic box delivery of Kolláge Yarns bringing you even more happiness than normal. 

Your joyful skeins of Happiness DK are spun and hand dyed here in the USofA. Susan Moraca of Kolláge Yarns hand dyes each in beautiful tonal shades giving depth to each stitch. Happiness DK is a plied, 100% Merino Wool yarn and, at 300 yards per skein, you’ll have 600 yards to play with. Let me tell you…the squish…ohhhhh the squish…you’re going to love it!!
Left to Right: Aspen, Denim, Baked Apple, Emerald, Lapis
We partnered with two amazing designers whose names you may recognize! Our very own subscriberGabrielle Vézina created the Inglenook Shawl. It’s a fun, textured shawl that picks up the subtle tonal changes within the yarn.
On the crochet side, we worked with one of my favorite designers :) Julie-Sarah Desjardins (aka ACCROchet) designed the Orchard Shawl, a Tunisian crochet design with an open lace border. You’ll love the stitch definition the Happiness DK gives this pattern. Both will be ready for you to download later today!
Which color is your favorite? I love them all!! Time to stalk your mailman!
