Celebrating Samhain with the Hemlock Shawl

It’s no secret that we love Halloween/Samhain and this year we are super excited to share a special collaboration with you! Ash Alberg is one of our favorite indie designers and all around witchy fiber person. We often talk about important it is to us to support other small business owners and independent entrepreneurs, and that’s how this collaboration was born.

Ash took the plunge to become a full-time knitting designer, and as soon as I heard, I reached out to her to commission a shawl pattern. I also wanted to highlight Harrisville Designs, a small family-owned and operated fiber mill here in New England. Ash and I took some time to squee over our mutual excitement, and then I sent her some skeins of FlyWheel.

A few months later, Ash and I are delighted to bring you Hemlock, her exclusive design just for us. It uses three skeins of FlyWheel, which has a stunning color palette, but you can knit it in any wooly fingering weight.
