A Scarf As Big As You Want

At this time of year, I think many of us crave a huge scarf, big enough to envelop one from head to toe. While the gorgeous Mentolat Scarf isn’t quite that big, it’s a generous helping of love from Manos del Uruguay, knit in their Silk Blend yarn. WEBS has made it easy for you to knit this uniquely-constructed scarf by making a kit-our Mentolat Kit comes in 4 different colorways, each with 6 colors of Manos del Uruguay’s Silk Blend yarn.

This DK-weight single ply blend of 70% merino and 30% silk is dreamy, both in color and texture. The kit provides you with 1500 yards, plenty to make the largest-sized scarf in your choice of color blocks. Since we’re officially at the tail end of the holiday season, this might make a great gift for a knitting friend who would rather DIY next year’s presents. Each kit comes with a free Mentolat Scarf pattern, making it a one-stop gift item, although frankly, I’d covet this for myself, and not ever give it away.

Part of our Anniversary celebrations this year includes new designs for some of our favorite Valley Yarns. Today we’re highlighting our Valley Yarns Colrain Lace.

The Mixed Tide Shawl from Janice Kang is a stunning, lacy wrap made with cleverly arranged, elongated stitches framed by easy garter stitch. Janice is a longtime friend of WEBS who never ceases to stun our staff with her beautiful knitwear when she visits our booths at Stitches West each year.

She was excited to work with our Valley Yarns Colrain Lace. The merino and tencel blend yarn has beautiful drape and subtle shimmer, and with 20 different colors to choose from there’s a shade for everyone. You can find more of Janice’s designs on Ravelry.
