November Classic Review: Jade Sapphire

Reduce, Reuse, Reluxe!

As citizens of this earth we are all responsible for taking care of the patch of land we inhabit. This means recycling what we can, making sure we don't litter, and loving and taking care of the other lives, small and large, that surrounds us. It is even more of a pleasure to use materials that are ethically sourced or recycled.

This month we are featuring Jade Sapphire's 100% cashmere yarn Reluxe Lite. Reluxe is a recycled fiber yarn, re-spun from old textiles to help reduce landfill waste! Reluxe Lite is a new DK weight of their existing Reluxe yarn and they've produced a special 60 gram ball just for Yarnbox. Each ball has 140 yards, giving you 280 total yarn of this luxurious yarn to work with.

Due to the recycling of fiber, Reluxe comes in a range of neutral shades and we picked our favorites for you. Clockwise from top: 972U (Taupe), 869M (Steel), 871U (Charcoal).

Both of our featured designers were inspired to create elegant lacy designs this month. Knit designer Kate Bostwick's Stars and Lace Set includes a beanie hat and fingerless mitts featuring a star stitch pattern and swirling lace.

Crochet Designer Heidi Nieling created the Landscape Cowl combining a textured body with a bobbled lace edging.

Total Value for this box: $67.83

2 balls Jade Sapphire Reluxe Lite: approx. $28.20 (custom size)
Knit Pattern: $6.43
Crochet Pattern: $5
