This beautiful little caplet, shoulder warmer, collar, mini-shawl is hand crocheted using a gorgeous high luster, ultra-soft hand-dyed wool and silk yarn. It fastens with a wooden button and can be fastened in a variety of different places along the caplet to fit many different sizes. The caplet is 9 inches from the neckline to the tip of the scalloped edges.

It would be gorgeous worn over a turtleneck shirt or sweater or use as a little shawl over that little black dress. The colors are gorgeous - golds, burgundy, bronze, orange, brown. It would be beautiful worn with cream, gold, burgundy, deep forest green, brown, black or gray.

Dry clean or hand wash in cool water, lay flat to dry. Do not twist or wring.

These three skeins of hand-spun yarn are spun from BFL wool dyed by Beemiceelf. This little collection of fibers was a sampler set of one ounce of six different colorways that make up the "Quiet Collection". These were a blast to spin. Use them all in one project - they coordinate beautifully - or use each skein for a separate project.

* I spun Secluded and Pensive Plum and plied them two ply for a total of 104 yards and 1.8 oz - DK weight.

* I spun Silent Meadow and Still Summit and plied them two ply for a total of 96 yards and 2.1 oz - Worsted weight.

* I spun Reflection and Serene and plied them two ply for a total of 84 yards and 1.9 oz - Worsted weight.

* Then what was left on the bobbin I Navajo plied for a total of 24 yards and 0.5 oz - Worsted weight.

* A total of 308 yards and 6.3 oz.

This yarn has been properly treated to set the twist.
Suitable for knitting, crocheting, felting or whatever your creativity dreams up!

  1. It's great to see Split Rock goodies covered here!! I love how Brenda raises the llamas, shears their fiber, and completely processes it into usable yarn...even creating needlework with some of it herself! Her colors are just wonderful!
