Fleece Flight (noun): A grouping of similar weight yarns used for sampling their fleecy fabulousness

Throughout the world, there are over 1,000 distinct breeds of sheep, yet many of us are only exposed to a few of the most common in our everyday knitting. Fleece Flight is a wonderful way to branch out and experience some of those rare yarns you have been missing.

Fleece Flight is a parallelogram shawl designed, through a series of short row triangles, with 2 - 6 skeins of Heritage Breed, Small Farm yarns.

Materials needed-
2, 4, or 6 skeins of worsted weight yarn, approx. 200 yards (183m) each You will use every inch of your yarn, so if one of your skeins is smaller than the rest, I would suggest you start with that one and let that be the guide for how big your triangles are.
