Product Details

Skill Level - Easy

This alpaca wool knit kit uses alpaca wool from British & Irish alpaca farms. Part of our alpaca wool Restful range, which is intended for stress-free easy knitting that means you can focus on the conversation, the movie or just whatever you need to be thinking about. Each pattern is simple to work with, and has been tested on beginners, rusty knitters, and the very accomplished. Everyone reports that the yarn is fabulous soft and lovely to work with and all the feedback is that the styles are very restful to knit, and lovely to wear!  

Our designer, Michelle, explains this design in her own words: The design for this shawl came about from my love of the Catherine Cookson movies. A lot of shawls are worn in these films and I thought it would be nice to honour her with a design called ‘Catherine Cookson’ shawl. You can wear this design much further down your back if you wish and hold the ends over your arms

The shawl uses lightweight DK alpaca yarn spun from the fleece of alpacas from UK farms. It's knitted as a flat panel, and you can choose either single pointed needles or circular needles...which can be helpful, just because it's a wide project and circulars hold the knitting easily.

  • Cotton alpaca project bag
  • Standard 150g (337m) or Large 200g (450m) of Gorgeous DK yarn made from 75% alpaca/25% sheep's wool
