Chesapeake Bottle Gift Bag
Pub’d in CEY Web-letter, Issue 271
50% Organic Cotton • 50% Wool
Chesapeake, part of the Verde Collection of environmentally conscious yarns, is a wonderful combination of fibers in a yarn that takes you through all seasons. The blend of cool, crisp, organic cotton combined with extra soft Merino wool and the gauge of 5 sts per inch make this a great yarn for both adult and children’s garments. The heathered colors are the lovely result of the different ways the vegetable and animal components take the dyes.
8” circumference x 10” tall (unstretched). Bag will stretch to fit a range of bottles from 8” to 11” tall.
