Malabrigo Dos Tierras for April 1 KAL

Regular price $60.00

Please join the Knit This, Purl That knitting community for a very special 2020 event - our first Malabrigo Knit-A-Long (which will be a virtual experience this year using Zoom and your computer or phone)!

The Malabrigo design team has organized an amazing Knit Along set to begin on April 1st, featuring their beautiful Dos Tierras yarn! 

The pattern Malabrigo chose to feature Dos Tierras was an easy one; it had to be the Odyssey Shawl by Joji Locatelli!  She is not only a talented designer but also a friend.

Odyssey Shawl Free Pattern

Dos Tierras means Two Lands, reflecting the sources of the two amazing fibers found in this ultra-soft yarn. By spinning together 50% of our fine Uruguayan Merino wool with 50% baby alpaca from Peru we have created a DK weight yarn that is as versatile as it is beautiful.  Great for accessories and hand-wash-friendly garments, next-to-skin wear, lace, cables, colorwork, and textured stitches.
