As the Winter chill settles around us, the scent of clove evokes feelings of comfort, warmth & joy.

Cloves Entwined is designed to be worked with two strands held together of fingering weight yarn (either the same colorway or two complimentary colorways for a subtle marl) paired with Suri or Mohair for comfy-cozy warmth. Lateral braids create the contrasting detail “stripes”.
