Kit - Knitting - Russian Medallion Shawl

Price: $45.00 - $52.99

Inna Voltchkova designed this magnificent shawl from one skein of Camelot Chameau (55% bombyx silk/45% camel).  The pattern was published in Piecework September/October 2015 issue, p50-53.  Inna's finished Shawl weighs 94g.

You can purchase either the Camelot Chameau yarn with the Piecework issue or without. 
     note:  The issue references charts that are on Piecework Magazine's website--the web address that's published in the issue has changed.  you can find the charts at this webaddress:  then scroll down to "Piecework September/October 2015" to find the Medallion Russion chart a and right below that, the Medallion revised key.

The majority of camel hair comes from the two-humped Bactrian variety, which survives in extremely cold climates. Camel hair is comprised of two qualities: relatively coarse outer hair and inner down fibre. An expensive process of separating the long coarse hair from the down, called dehairing, is necessary before spinning yarn.

The short camel fiber acquires length, shape retention sheen and durability when blended with silk. The silk attains a beautiful tan colour, softness and warmth. The yarn is strong, yet cuddly and scrumptious to weave or knit lace accessories.

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.

Thank you, Piecework magazine, for the photo of the model with the shawl.
