Maybe, like us, you live in the city and have been witnessing spring from your windows this year, lifting them wide open to gulp in fresh air, peering around the edges of your view to glimpse the flowering tree down the block. Sounds like time to bring spring in!
Our Daffodil Lace Wrap is just the ticket for an uplifting feeling of sunshine, blossoms, and possibilities! Its simple lace pattern evokes the new growth of petals and leaves, while its color shines like the midday sun.
All this brilliance comes from our new Spectrum Silk, a one hundred percent silk fingering or sportweight yarn with a natural talent for absorbing color. Spectrum Silk’s distinctive palette comes in 26 truly inspiring colors, including this vibrant blast of yellow we call Lemon Drop.
The elegance of silk but with a soft, matte finish, Spectrum Silk bridges the everyday to the special, while our Daffodil Lace Wrap brings the feeling of spring right through your window!
