Over the years, one of our very most inspiring projects has been the Cashmere Ombré Wrap. In collaboration with Jade Sapphire, we had a simple concept: Dunk eight skeins of Mongolian cashmere into a bath of extraordinary color, wait and pull a skein out, wait and pull a skein out, repeat until all eight emerge in perfect harmony with each other. And then… get knitting!
This season we’re thrilled to add a new color to the Cashmere Ombré Wrap family, deep and juicy Plum. At its darkest, it’s a resonant bass note, and at its lightest, it’s a bird song floating on a breeze. All together, our Plum Wrap plays a distinctive tune, expressive, mysterious, and absolutely gorgeous!
To make your own Cashmere Ombré Wrap in Plum, you’ll need a Cashmere Ombré Wrap Kit. It includes…
- 8 very special skeins of Jade Sapphire’s 4-ply 100% Mongolian cashmere, dyed exclusively for Purl Soho and this project
- A full-color pattern booklet, with instructions for making your wrap in either seed stitch or mistake rib
- A Purl Soho muslin project bag
