Bask in the blue
Now available on worsted weight too!
You know that feeling you get when you’re perfectly relaxed on the shore? That’s how you’ll feel knitting with this colorway: relaxed, but ready to take on your next adventure. It’s the perfect combination of gentle, classic blue shades and perfect, natural white. It’ll have you floating through your project with all the softness of those Wyoming Cormo sheep.
When you receive your own skein of Lake Day Weather, rest assured that yours is uniquely dyed and full of the characteristically unpredictable forces of nature. Each one is beautiful and quirky just like you!
The shawl featured in the photos is the Sard Shawl designed by Kavitha Raman of CraftDoodling Designs. A perfect cool summer evening accessory that will take you right into fall, it’s a recipe for knitting fun with its triangular shape full of stockinette and simple eyelet rows. And, it’s finished off with cute lacy knitted-on border! You can pre-order this pattern with the Sard Shawl KAL Kit.

–> Each skein is 100 grams of rustic, yet soft, smooth and bouncy fingering (sock) weight wool yarn grown and milled in Wyoming. Yarn is lovingly dyed with natural materials ethically sourced and/or grown in my Central Oregon garden. The yarn wrap features plantable wildflower seed paper so that you can enjoy even more of nature’s beauty!
–> When you purchase one of our hanks of yarn, you’re supporting local ranchers and a woman-owned fiber mill to keep our small communities thriving. You’ll be creating on-trend projects while using dyes that are the gentlest on our environment by keeping our water sources clean. Knitting with this yarn will connect you so deeply to the sheep it will almost feel like you have one of your own!
–> This yarn is farm-fresh. It arrives full of vegetation leftover from the sheep’s shenanigans out in their field. I pick out as much as I can by hand, but there will likely be some leftover bits that I’ve missed. Just consider these extra love from the sheep! Baaaa…
–> Every effort will be made to package your order in an environmentally-friendly way using recycled and/or reused materials.
***Hand wash cool***
Great care was taken to ensure dye was set properly. However, it is normal for natural dye matter to continue to rinse for the first few washes.
