To make our Set-of-Three Pot Holders, we put on our best chef’s hat and thought about the improvisational spirit of making a seasonal soup. We started with a base of Merchant & Mills’ tasty Baker’s Twine, threw in a dash of Brooklyn Tweed’s peppery Shelter and added a cup of Purl Soho’s creamy Worsted Twist. The result is a well-balanced, nuanced and really interesting set of pot holders!
