RESTOCKED Fleece Artist Merino Thrum Mitten Kit

These mitten kits are super popular around here and always fly off the shelf! Thrumming is a very old technique that is seriously fun and functional. Small tufts of roving (wool that hasn’t been spun into yarn yet) are knit into the garment creating a fuzzy warm layer on the inside and irresistible dots of colour the outside. As you wear them, the thrummed roving felts down, keeping your hands warm and cozy (take note dog owners, these are ideal winter dog walking mitts). The mittens will be the colour of the yarn and the thrums (roving) will peek through. This kit can also be used to make Thrummed Socks (great as house-socks or slippers)! Each kit is individually hand dyed, no two will be exactly alike. 

NOTE: Each kit is individually dyed and unique. No two kits will be the same.

Skill Level: Advanced-Beginner (after a regular pair of mitts)

  • Pattern & instructions  (or you can download them free HERE)

RESTOCKED Handmaiden Maiden Hair

Handmaiden Maiden Hair is one of my all-time favourite yarns, and we just received some new stock, so it’s time for it to shine! I personally like the semi-solid colours, but the multis are super popular around the store. Two skeins make the Cottage Wrap (above), one makes a Quaker Yarn Stretcher (below).

The Cottage Wrap combines two fundamentals of knitting to create a reversible, welted texture: stocking stitch and reverse stocking. It is knitted on the bias, increasing in width as you go, so you can make it any size you like and use any tension of yarn you like – it’s a great stash-buster! The pattern may look long and complicated, but it isn’t, it’s just written with detail for inexperienced knitters and people with short attention spans. The pattern repeat is long, so a chart is included to guide you and help you keep track of where you are in the pattern. You can use any yarn you like, which makes it a great stash buster (see amounts below).
