Winter Begone: Master Color Series 2

Our inspirational palette
Not sure you can make it through six more weeks of winter? Don't worry, cashmere makes it all better, and our 100% Mongolian Cashmere base Xanadu is a light fingering weight which is lightweight and soft, yet oh-so-warm - perfect for the weeks ahead.

Warm up with the latest installment of the Master Color Series, which we've just released in our online store. Series 2, Winter Begone, features 6 exclusive new colorways dyed for us by MJ Yarns on our Xanadu base! Each color in the set complements each other, making it easy to choose the perfect color for your next project...because no matter what you pick, they'll all look great together!

This is the time of year when we start to hope for winter's end - but until spring arrives, the warmth and comfort of a fine cocktail and even better yarn can get us through the long, cold days. So, this time around we decided to name all 6 colors in this series after cocktails (you'll find recipes for each colorway below & on our website)!


Shown above (from L-R): Macbeth, Absinthe, Blonde Ambition, Beneath Broken Earth, Maiden's Blush & Cosmo.


We also have a new project kit debuting this month: the Sand Layers Shawl can be knit with 2 or more colors from Series 2 of the Master Color Series. For our three-color version shown here, we used Blonde Ambition (Color A), Absinthe (Color B) & Macbeth (Color C) in the following order: ABCABC. When you swatch, you can play around with the color placement to see which looks best to you, especially if you would like to use 3 or more colors - the pattern includes instructions for color placement when knitting this shawl using 2 colors.

Each kit includes a print copy of the pattern, your choice of yarn colors, a BBR project bag, samples of Allure Fiber Wash, and a custom-made stitch marker from Purrfectly Catchy Designs, and is available for a special discount.
