About the Silver Indigo Wrap Knitting Kit
When we first starting talking about who we wanted to design the first kit using our SilverSpun® Silk, there was no doubt it had to be Wendy. The success of her Trellis Tam, her design for our Designer of the Month series, left no doubt that she would come up with something gorgeous. When we wrote to ask if she might be interested in working with us again, she responded, "You said three magic words: SilverSpun®, Indigo, and gradient! Yes, I am in! I already have the beginning of an idea for a wrap that would take advantage of great stitch definition, show off the beautiful shading and would be easy enough for an advanced beginner/intermediate knitter but enough fun to knit to keep experienced knitters happy." Need we say more? All of the knitter's bases are covered with this design. The kit includes: SilverSpun® Silk (70% cotton, 17% Tussah silk, 7% nylon, 6% silver), 400 yards (366 meters) 2 ounces: gradient set of 3 skeins (1200 yards); Downloadable PDF pattern.
The Power of SilverSpun®
The silver content in SilverSpun® makes it therapeutic and conductive. Silver inhibits the growth of odor causing bacteria, has excellent thermal properties, is nontoxic and is perfect for those suffering from diabetes, arthritis and sensitive skin. Silver is also an excellent conductive agent thus allowing smart phone or tablet touch screen use while wearing gloves knit from the yarn. The silver is permanently adhered to the yarn and will not wash out.
