Headbands are truly timeless and iconic accessories. They travelled through history and were passed down from generations to generations, evolving in fashion since ancient Greece. The lace pattern featured in this headband is both elegant and slightly vintage, making it a perfect heirloom accessory with a timeless vibe.
Rose des Sables headband features an interesting construction as it is knit in two directions. It is seamless, grafted at the top, and has an I-cord edge which is knit at the same time. A bow is created to cover the seam.
You know how much we love a good, all-natural sock yarn - and Ovis Et Cetera's "Close" is as close to perfect as it gets. Custom-spun by John Arbon Textiles in the UK, it's a delightful blend of Devon Closewool, Exmoor Blueface and Zwartbles from sheep flocks that live close to the mill. In its undyed shape, it's a beautiful heathered grey, and when Saskia adds her dyeing magic to it, it transforms into the most gorgeous glowing jewel tones.
Close is spun with a little bit of extra twist for increased durability. It has great stitch definition and a bit of a halo, which makes it ideal for cables, texture, and soothing stockinette. Plus, it works really, really well for colorwork!
