Love Note Sweater Kit
We thought this in-house handdye of joyous pinks would make a great Tincanknits' Love Note sweater. Normally this sweater is knit with a fingering weight combined with a lace weight mohair, but many have just knit it out of a dk weight. And several have knit it out of the yarn base of this handdye (Juniper Moon Patagonia Organic Merino). The base of this yarn is slightly closer to a sport weight so one could still add some mohair for some extra fluff if you wanted.
Kit includes 4 skeins of 100% organic merino with a "rustic feel but soft with a nice bloom after washed." Hand-dyed by Elizabeth at Purl's. Each skein has 382 yards per 100 grams which gives you a total of 1,528 yards which is more than enough for up to size 5XL of the Love Notes sweater which takes 1450 yards.
