Wagtail Yarns

dscn0619.jpgdscn0847.jpg

This yummy yarn comes from Australia and so, naturally it is pricey (as anything shipped from there is) and so worth the splurge !

wagtail comes in a huge and wonderful array of colors, lots of yardage and knits like the proverbial dream.

Right now I am making two shawls, one in blush and one in raspberry.  I took the raspberry hank out to my friends raspberry patch, just to see how much the color looked like raspberries, and it matched perfectly !

The yarn shows stitch definition beautifully and feels like silk running thru your hands as you knit.  After several swatches,  I settled on size seven and eight needle sizes for my shawls.

The raspberry  shawl pattern was taken from the wonderful book “Wrapped in Comfort”.
