A grand wrap for fall (and every season to come) — Lochlann by our pal Cheryl Toy is one big, squishy, cozy shawl covered in leaf lace, slip stitch stripes, garter stitch, ribbing, and bound off with a contrasting I-cord for a spectacular finish.
Made in our soft and airy Weld, this large triangular shawl is worked from the top-center down, growing with increases along the center spine and edges. An irresistible knit, this design has serious “one more row” syndrome.

Weld and its big sibling Forge are our first 100% US-made yarns - and we're the first European stockists of Hudson + West, the fabulous company who makes them! A heathered blend of 70% Merino and 30% Corriedale, Weld is spun up to a lovely fingering weight. It's a well-balanced three-ply yarn, with a slightly more energetic twist for strength and durability.It has a beautiful balance of stitch definition, bounce, and wooly, cohesive bloom after blocking that makes it perfect for lace, texture, colorwork and stockinette. One of our new favorites!
