Kit - Knitting - Silken Fog Stole

Price: $45.00 - $52.99

Inna Votchkova designed this gorgeous stole, knitted out of Silken Fog (doubled). 

Her pattern is published in Piecework May/June 2015 Lace issue, page 42-44.  Her finished stole weighs 97g.

You can purchase the Silken Fog yarn (55% bombyx silk/45% yak) with or without the Piecework magazine.

Yak is a valued beast of burden living above the snowline in the Himalayan Mountains. It provides meat, milk, hair and hides to the people living there.

Silk lends the delicate yak down substance, sheen and elasticity. At the same time, the silk becomes softer and warmer with a lovely soft brown/grey colour when blended with yak.

When winding into a ball, we recommend putting an empty paper towel cardboard tube (or something similar) over the center post of your ball winder (you can cut the tube to the height of the center post).  When finished winding, remove the yarn ball with the tube still in the center-this will prevent the center of the ball from collapsing (a collapsed center can create "bunching" which can lead to tangles).  Work the yarn from the outside of the ball.  

There is a lot of yardage in one skein; if you prefer, we can wind onto a cone for you.  Order that separately, clicking here.

Color: Natural  

Thank you, Piecework magazine, for the photo of the stole.
