New Store Sample: Simple (Extreme!) Luxury Scarf April 4, 2012 – Posted in: New in Store, Project Ideas, Store Samples

The Simple Luxury Scarf by Anna & Heidi Pickles is one of those basic but highly effective designs that lets the yarn be the star of the show.  The original pattern calls for fingering merino stranded with silk mohair but we thought – why not take this up a notch – why not knit an extreme luxury version? It didn’t take us long to settle on Red Label Cashmere and Silk from Tanis Fiber Arts stranded with Filatura di Crosa’s Superior – an incredibly soft lace-weight blend of cashmere and silk.  The result is heavenly – lofty, delicate, and unbelievably cozy. The store sample pictured below uses Red Label in Charcoal paired with Superior in Black. With a new shipment of Red Label just arrived and a full stock of Superior already in store – the possibilities are endless…
