One light worsted yarn, one fingering yarn, and one set of needles, our Swath Wrap is fiber fascination at its finest!

You cast on the long way with our baby alpaca, extra fine merino, and linen Flax Down, knit two skeins in simple stockinette, then switch to our thinner Linen Quill, a fine highland wool, alpaca, and linen blend, and knit that entire skein…

The result is a swath of stockinette with a subtle shift from plump close-knit Flax Down to finer Linen Quill, knit on slightly too-big needles for a lighter, airier finish to the wrap.

The trick is to use the same color in both yarns so that the entire play is one of texture, touch, and feel, of the way one side settles around your shoulders while the other flutters across your chest.

And now with new colors of both Linen Quill and Flax Down, choosing a Swath Wrap Bundle is even more inspiring! Eight new palettes join the party, including this incredibly deep and gorgeous Wild Violet. Pick your palette!
