Pre-Order Five Borough Yarns Kit for Louis Boria of Brooklyn Boy Knits

$ 74.99

NOTE: All Knit Stars Season 6 yarns are dyed to order. This kit is offered as a pre-order, which we expect to ship in February.

This "Mellow and Chill Out" kit includes a variegated and semi-solid aran weight pairing, perfect for warm and cozy vibes during the Fall season. The yarn has warm tones of mustard yellow, speckles of emerald green and burgundy with a cool breeze of blue. 

Dyer Lindsey Vega of Five Borough Yarns and Season 6 Knit Star Louis Boria of Brooklyn Boy Knits share a love for their hometown and through this partnership you are getting the true Brooklyn aesthetic.

Included in the kit is a special patch designed by Louis himself - he pulled out his glue stick to mock up the original design that the patch will be based on! You can use this patch to accessorize your hat, or apply it to your favorite jean jacket or project bag.
