As we tiptoe out of winter and creep softly into spring, stay warm, but not weighted down, with our lofty Jasmine Scarf. Each row you knit cultivates columns of caliper cables, like a budding vine, mimicking the world’s awakening.

Caught smack between the seasons, we picked our incredibly soft and gently rustic Flax Down, a beautiful blend of baby alpaca, extra fine merino and linen. In Heirloom White, these climbing cables glow with fresh life! Happy spring to all! -Laura

Update: New Color!

Purl Soho welcomes six gorgeous new colors to our Flax Down palette! We used one, Rose Granite, to knit up our classic Jasmine Scarf. Complex and mysterious, the effect is absolutely intriguing!
