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.

Studio DK is now GOTS-certified organic! This springy, 3-ply yarn is still just as versatile and vibrant as ever, but we’re no longer using the traditional superwash process, which relies on harsh chemicals to make the yarn machine-washable. Instead, our wool is minimally processed to be environmentally friendly and even softer than before.

Subtle color variations are achieved through kettle dyeing.

100% organic Merino

Care instructions:

Machine wash on gentle cycle or hand wash using mild soap. Lay flat to dry. We recommend washing with Eucalan as other brands of wool wash have had adverse effects on our yarn.
