Shelridge Yarns

Either 535 yards or 1070 yards of Shelridge Yarns 100% Wool fingering weight yarn. Each colorway gradient was carefully chosen specifically by the head dyer, Lyn Gemmell who purchased the Shelridge Yarns company from it's original owner Buffy Taylor in 2012. Lyn has a long history in the knitting world as co-owner of Cabin Fever with her sister Deb. Lyn has been publishing her designs since 2004 and brings a unique perspective as a designer to her lovely and nuanced dye work with Shelridge Yarns.  These lovely yarns are available for the kit in the shawlette size (3 skeins) and the full size (6 skeins). The small shawl kit is $99 and the large shawl kit is $135.

Hand Crafted Shawl Pins by Bonnie Bishoff

I fell in love at first sight with these beautiful hand made shawl pins by Bonnie Bishoff. These bezel free pins have a versatile removable pin to secure your favorite shawls in place. Each plum shawl pin is created individually and the colors vary much like dyelots in yarn. Bonnie is a very talented artist living in the Southwest and creating beautifully unique and stylish jewelry.


Sterling Silver Stitch Markers

Knitifacts created two beautiful sterling silver stitch markers are included with orange-pink swarovski crystal butterflies especially for the November KAL kit. Knitifacts, owned by Laura Crowley was started over 10 years ago, born from her love of fiber and a rather impressive stash of Venetian beads remaining from her bead import business. With a background in jewelry design and as an experienced knitter, Laura strives to design accessories that are not only beautiful, but fully functional as well. She makes each and every marker herself to ensure quality workmanship.
