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.

Now non-superwash, single-ply Rustic Fingering is made with 100% Merino wool, and has enough yardage for many shawlette and accessory patterns. Since it is not superwash, this new Rustic Fingering feels a bit softer, and is easier to block into shape (especially with lace). It also takes dye a little differently than our superwash bases, and has a watercolor appearance.

100% Merino
475 yards/4 oz
7-8 sts/inch US 0-1

Care instructions:
Hand wash with tepid water and mild soap. Lay flat to dry. We recommend washing with Eucalan as other brands of wool wash have had adverse effects on our yarn.
