Introducing one of two new yarn and pattern kits we are launching this week: the Ryokō Wrap, designed by Lisa Cannon, featuring FDW’s Sunshine and Floof yarns held together.
Ryokō is the Japanese word for “travel.” The slightly asymmetrical Ryokō wrap features columns of eyelets that travel both upward toward the center and back downward away from it. The sections of garter ridges between these columns create two sets of steps: Along the top edge, the steps form a gentle, rolling edge, while a more pronounced path of steps travels down and back up along the bottom. Knit with a light fingering weight and a kid mohair/silk yarn held together, Ryokō will be a source of warmth and comfort along your journey, wherever it may lead.
This kit includes a pattern download code that is redeemable on Ravelry, as well as both skeins of yarn that you’ll need to complete the project: one skein of Sunshine, 100% SW Merino, light fingering, 490 yards; and one skein of Floof, 72/28 Kid Mohair/Silk.
The sample shown was knit using Snowy Owl on Sunshine and Wisp on Floof.
We are offering these kits in five colors combinations:
Snowy Owl (Sunshine) and Wisp (Floof)
Deep Pomegranate (Sunshine) and Soft Pomegranate (Floof)
Denim (Sunshine) and Soft Denim (Floof)
Forest Green (Sunshine) and Soft Forest (Floof)
Raspberry (Sunshine) and SweetTart Pink (Floof)
We are also offering a sixth option for a custom order kit in which you can choose whichever color of each yarn that you’d like to use. Please make your color choice from the drop down. If choosing the custom option, please leave a note in your order at check out letting me know what colors you would like for both the Sunshine and the Floof skeins. Custom color orders will ship 2-4 weeks from the time of ordering. If you’ve included other in-stock items in your order, they will be held until your custom order kit is ready to ship.
Sunshine, 100% SW Merino, light fingering, 490 yards.
Floof, 72/28 Kid Mohair/Silk, lace weight, 459 yards.
Sunshine is a superwash yarn and can be machine washed in cool water with a gentle wool wash. However, due to its delicate nature, we recommend gently hand washing the Floof base. As both yarns are held together for this project, hand washing your finished wrap is recommended. Lay flat to air dry.
All of our yarns and fibers are individually hand-dyed using professional grade acid dyes. Colorway names are consistent between yarns/fibers dyed with the same dye colors, however color strengths can (and likely will) vary between skeins and between different bases.
We make every effort to assure the colors in our photos are as accurate as possible, but please note that colors can vary from monitor to monitor.
