Ramate Wrap Yarn Kit

Combination: Seven Seas and Misty Mountain

The Ramate Wrap by Caroline Sommerfeld

as seen in Wool Studio Vol XI

Yarn Kits available now!

The Ramate Wrap is inspired by the gorgeous floral textiles and wallpapers designed and printed by William Morris & Co. in the late 1800s. The shawl is shaped to resemble the graceful drape of fine Victorian shawls and is easy to style. Brioche stitch is used to create the intertwining vines found in much of William Morris’s work, and mosaic stitch is used to create a center panel representing a formal English garden. Two-color brioche stitch creates the vining movement through the wings of the shawl, while the center band features mosaic stitch.

This shawl is for advanced (or adventurous intermediate) knitters thanks to the two-colour brioche with increases and decreases on both sides of the work. 

The yarn used in this wrap is our exclusive Herlig DK, a special blend of Viking Norwegian wool and Merino wool that is both beautiful and warm. The wrap requires 4 skeins of Herlig DK, 2 skeins of each colour.

The pattern is NOT included with the yarn!  You must go to the Interweave website to purchase the pattern.Alternatively, you can purchase the entire Digital copy of Wool Studio XI, by going to their website here.

While we make every effort to represent colour accurately, they may vary slightly when viewed on different monitors.

Dyed-to-Order:  Please note that with dyed-to-order yarns you will need to allow up to 2 - 3 weeksfor us to dye and ship your yarn. In addition, while we strive for consistency, due to the hand dye process variations may exist between (and with some colourways within) dye lots. Therefore it is important to order sufficient yarn for your project, and if a uniform result is preferred we suggest alternating skeins. We hope that you will value and appreciate the beautiful and unique creations of the hand dye process and are always happy to assist you in working with hand dyed yarns!
