The Ryman Wrap in Camellia Flax

Camellia Fiber Co's Silbia dropped off a beautiful restock last week of Flax Fingering. a bunny-soft alpaca/linen/silk blend that drapes beautifully...the linen creates an interesting, slightly rustic texture. The resulting fabric is both warm and breathable, making it suited for multi-season garments: lace shawls, cardigans, and lightweight tops.

A Haus favorite -- the Ryman Wrap (inspired by the architecture of one of Music City's most famous landmarks) is a fingering-weight wrap that begins with a provisional cast-on and alternates between engaging lace “windows” and soothing stockinette “walls.” We love this piece for its styling versatility: wear it like a traditional stole or fold in half, drape around neck and pull those ends through the loop for a more casual look.

The Inchworm Scarf in Peerie

The super cute Inchworm scarf uses an assortment of fingering weight colors to create a tubular, striped scarf with a major graphic wow factor! You'll knit in the round using stockinette and rib stitches. We followed the pattern color sequence changes exactly as written for our sample, but you can go your own way and use however many colors you wish and just change when the mood strikes you. The result would be as unique as your fingerprint!

Our sample is knit using seven colors of Peerie from Brooklyn Tweed. Peerie is spun from 100% American Merino fleece from Nevada and Utah; it's a soft, springy fingering-weight yarn and it's available in an amazing color range. We used one skein each in Admiral, Alizarin, Cortado, Hammock, Kettle, Patina & Tincture!
