Description

 When I found out that Michelle Obama had been knitting through the quarantine, I literally jumped up and down for joy. In honor of this amazing occurrence, I'm bringing back the colorway 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. As many of you know, I designed this colorway in 2008, hopeful that an Obama/Biden administration would bring a change that I could believe in. I also envisioned Michelle Obama wearing a shawl that I would knit for her in my yarn. This colorway was always for her. So, until November 4, 1600 Pennsylvania Ave: Michelle Obama Limited Edition will be available in all of our bases. I encourage you to use it to knit or crochet an Empower scarf (link to website), or knit a shawl for your favorite First Lady. Most importantly, get out there and VOTE.

Your yarn will be dyed to order. Please allow up to 2 weeks for fulfillment.

Buttery soft to the touch, Capital Luxury Sport is well suited to the finer things in life with its blend of merino, cashmere and nylon. Our Capital Luxury Sport is gorgeously warm, wonderfully vibrant and gloriously smooth as it glides through your hands.

Subtle color variations are achieved through kettle dyeing.
