Raices Pullover was inspired by the Rustic Merino from dLana. I called in Raices which means roots in Spanish as an homage to my own personal background. My father was born in Salamanca, Spain. I have fond memories of driving through the countryside with merino sheep all around. Little did I know then that I would grow up to own a yarn shop and surround myself full time around yarn.

dLana Rustica is a rustic merino yarn that is a delight to knit with and so cozy to wear. The merino sheep from Castilla y León where my father was born.

I knew I wanted to choose Dream State from Spincycle as a perfect mix of my own roots. Although I live in canada, I was born and raised in New Orleans. Dream State is 100% Americal wool.

Raices is a top down raglan sweater in construction. The multicolored stripes in Spincycle Dream State make it fun to see it grow and evolve.
