This kit is for the Vintage '83 pattern by Andrea Mowry. It is knit in four colors, one main color that features a lovely tonal or speckle perfectly, and three contrast colors that form a colorful brioche yoke! The pattern is written with the contrast colors on a Suri Alpaca, but our Lofty Lace blend with Mohair and Silk is just perfect as well! Depending on your gauge, you may want to hold the Lofty Lace doubled when using the contrast colors for a stronger color effect.

Please go to the pattern page here to check what size you will need to knit before purchasing. The size you select from the dropdown menu will have the required amount of yarn called for in the pattern for your size. Please feel free to email us if you have any questions about picking which size is right for you, or if you want to add an extra skein to your kit!

**Please allow up to 2 weeks for your yarn to be dyed and shipped. Also note no patterns are included in this kit.**

This yarn has been dyed using professional acid dyes and has been set during dyeing to reduce bleeding. Great care has been taken to ensure your yarn will not bleed, but it is recommended that you hand wash this yarn separately the first time after knitting to be cautious, especially for darker or more saturated red and blue shades.

I try to capture the colors of my yarns as best I can but unfortunately there are always differences due to monitor configuration. Please keep this in mind when ordering.

All yarn comes from a pet-friendly, smoke-free environment.
