For our latest Yarnbox Luxe offering, we’re traveling back in time to draw inspiration from the mid-nineteenth century British Empire, full of technological innovation, bright new colors and rich textures of imported fabrics. Like a visitor to the Great Exhibition, we hope you discover something new and awe inspiring to bring a bit of luxury into your life.
This month, we welcome Anzula Luxury Fibers, a California-based company specializing in the finest yarns hand-dyed in a rainbow of semi-solid colors. Each box includes three skeins of their DK weight yarn Croquet, a slinky smooth blend of 50% merino wool and 50% tussah silk. With generous 114 gram skeins, you’ll have 690 yards total for your project.
We’re featuring two beautiful designs to showcase your yarn at its best! Knit designer Afifa Sayeed created the ‘It’s Alright Shawl’, a giant, cozy design featuring dropped stitch details among a garter body, finished off with a fringed edge.
Melissa Leapman designed the ‘Croquet Shawl’, an asymmetrical design with a classic double crochet pattern and picot edging.
To finish your project to perfection, we’ve included a ruler for checking gauge and a teapot measuring tape to help you block your completed piece. For a final personal treat, use the included unscented lotion bars from Love + Leche to keep your hands soft and smooth while you work with any delicate yarn project.
