Celebrating the fiber farms, mills and dyers of the Appalachian region.
With a focus on beautiful and practical knits, Jennifer Sadler and Christina Danaee bring you a collection of designs made with yarns produced in the fiber rich region of Appalachia.
Hawksbill is a simple t-shirt pattern, featuring a curved hem with a small split on the sides. Named after a mountain in the Virginia Appalachian Mountain range, this tee will be one you grab for time and time again anytime of year. Knitted in Cestari’s Ash Lawn cotton/wool blend yarn, you will feel the rustic and lightweight yarn glide easily through your fingers. Cestari’s mill, located just a few miles from Hawksbill Mountain, is a family run operation that has been in business since 1946. You can read more about this family and company at their website, http:// www.cestarisheep.com/, including a description of how they raise, process, and spin their wool and cotton into yarn.
