If you haven't been to the mill lately, then you've been missing out on our Do-si-do Yarns; limited edition colourways carded into the softest merino and rambouillet 100% wool Lopi Soft Spun and Mule Spinner 1-ply.

Do-si-do Yarn

The Do-si-do Lopi Yarn is a personal favourite because it is big and bulky so knits up quickly into wonderfully soft cowls, shrugs, and scarves. It is perfect for knitting a last minute gift for someone who likes a bit of colour in their life, which is why we'll have it available this weekend, Dec 4 - 6, at Market Collective in Calgary. Below is my Shrug Hug pattern for your knitting pleasure. Designed to be a versatile winter garment, it can be worn as a hood, a cowl, or a shrug (honestly, it's kind of like taking a warm hug with you everywhere). It uses exactly one skein of the Do-si-do Lopi.
