This yarn kit was originally designed for the Westknits 2022 MKAL shawl by Stephen West but can be used for anything your heart desires. There is enough yarn to make a large sized shawl.

Patterns are not included with this Yarn Kit, however if you are interested in pattern ideas please check out our Knitting Patterns page.

Silk Stocking is for those times when you want some drape and shine in your life. Perfect for shawls and summery tops, this yarn is also good for smaller accessories. Silky soft to work with, merino wool provides warmth and elasticity whilst the silk provides strength, shine and drape. Moderate twist means good stitch definition.

Hand dyed yarn is a work of art - no two skeins are the same. We recommend that you order enough yarn to complete your project, and that you alternate skeins every couple of rows to avoid obvious colour differences.
