As even a casual follower of Purl Soho probably knows, we love a swath of stockinette fabric, and nothing does it better than our simple-as-pie Elementary Wrap pattern!

Elementary Wrap in Posy + Tussock | Purl Soho

For this version, we add a layer of visual complexity without complicating the pattern itself by combining a strand of our hand-dyed Posy with a strand of mohair-silk Tussock. The effect is a mysterious stew of color and texture, a beautiful blend of all the things we love about fiber!
