Naturally Dyed Eathie Sets

£64.50

The Eathie Shawl has been designed by my talented friend Emily Williams. There are some lovely coloured versions of the Eathie Shawl on Ravelry, they are well worth looking at to get a feel for how these sets will knit up.

The striking Eathie Shawl was designed by my friend Emily Williams. It was designed originally for the 2016 clip of three special ewes Horse, Frankenstein and Monkey Face and their limited supplies of yarn.

The Eathie Shawl pattern been amended to include DK weight (and in fact can be knit at any weight).  The Light DK sets will knit a shawl slightly larger than the original and the 4 ply sets will knit a shawl considerably larger than the original (original shawl is approx 170 x 70 cm).  The lace itself is simple and relaxing knitting requiring only increases, decreases and yarn overs.

Each kit will include a printed copy of the pattern (and a Ravelry download code) plus three 100g skeins of Light DK weight or 4 ply yarn (two naturally dyed skeins and one undyed skein).

The various yarns included in these kits are as follows (see each colour way for specific yarns included):

Cross Breeds Blend – BFL, Cheviot, Lincoln & Hampshire

Horse’s Daughter – BFL, Cotswold & Cheviot

  1. Black Isle Yarns are gently and minimally processed by The Border Mill from real animals who enjoy an outdoor life (in beautiful surroundings, lucky beasts!) – consequently you may find the odd bit of vegetation in your yarn, these are easy to remove as you knit and, if you’re lucky enough to find some, I hope will remind you of the special animals who have grown your yarn!
  2. I do my best to show the yarn colours as accurately as possible but please be aware that colours do vary from monitor to monitor
  3. Your yarn should be gently hand washed in cool water using pH neutral wool wash such as Eucalan or Soak. This may seem time consuming at first but should soon become an enjoyable part of working with a gently treated natural product.
  4. All my dyed colours have been thoroughly washed and rinsed however there may be a slight release of residual colour on washing – this shouldn’t change the overall yarn colour or alter other colours.
