finding the right pattern to show off a beautiful single ply handspun yarn can be so difficult sometimes. and when that handspun is made from local fibres and natural dyes, it’s even more important to showcase the beauty! taking centre stage (literally), use your favourite light handspun for this centre-out square shawl, and then pair it with the perfect partner yarn for a border that alludes to the particular shape of harebell flowers. this dear design is pure manitoba magic - natural dyes from local dyer tog & thel, inspired by local flora, and designed for the inaugural manitoba fibre festival pattern collection. welcome to the flatlands!
