Working with some really wonderful June Cashmere. After reading about their mission to support the traditional Kyrgyz farmers, I had to track some down to try it out.

The lace I used reminded me of branching juniper foliage, so I did a little research and found that archa is the Kyrgyz word for juniper, a plant which is common in the area, and which is traditionally used in family celebrations and various rituals.
