Cast Away Yarn from Knit Collage is a delightful thick and thin handspun wool with a cocoon-like slubby texture that adds loft and fluff to finished pieces. We love the touch of Angelina polyester that adds a hint of sparkle. Sooo pretty! Cast Away yarn comes in a gorgeous range of hand carded and handspun colors. In some colorways over 10 fiber colors are all tediously carded together. The finished result is a beautiful melange of colors in a super soft thick and thin textured yarn.
Cast Away is similar to Knit Collage Pixie Dust yarn but smaller in yarn size, knitting up on US size 11-15 needles. Some of the colorways have sparkling Angelina fibers in them and are denoted by the word Sparkle at the end of their color name. Even though the raw materials are the same, no two skeins are completely alike because of the intense handmade process that goes into each and every skein.
The Cozy Cast Away Shawl is a voluminous wrap you'll be able to wear a multitude of ways. We especially love it worn with the point to create an oversized bandana cowl look. Wrapped around your shoulders is also beautiful! The open stitch makes this shawl light and the cozy wool make it nice and warm. You'll need 3 skeins of Cast Away Yarn and size 17 needles. Pattern free with purchase.
The Wavy Feather Scarf pattern combines Cast Away with a subtle wavy pointelle stitch. The result is a luscious scarf that will actually get you excited about winter! The scarf is long and wide, perfect for wrapping around your neck as many times as you like. The pattern calls for 3 skeins of yarn but you could use 2 for a shortened version. You'll need size #13 needles. Pattern free purchase.
