Slack Tide Wrap Kit

Color: Wheat
Beach Paradise
Denim 2
Dune Grass

Designed by Fiona Munro from MunroSisters3


Each KIT includes the Pattern and the amount of Yarn required


The Slack Tide Wrap is inspired by the movement of water on beautiful ocean shores, where grasses grow among the rolling dunes, and streams flow down into the sea. The movement of water can be positively hypnotic when the direction of the tide is changing, because as it flows it creates incredible patterns in the sand and pebbles. The striking geometric textures in this shawl mimic these patterns and are as soothing to knit as it is to spend time enjoying the movement of the waves and grasses by the sea. 

Finished Measurements: 189 cm x 45.5 cm / 74.5" x 18"

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!
