Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted - City of Rosesbbrioche-cowl.jpeg

City of Roses is an exclusive colorway designed and sold only by Angelika's Yarn Store.   Reminiscent of the tall rose bushes Angelika used to walk past on her way to work in her former location in downtown Portland.  Contact us if you need more!   We get this yarn custom dyed regularly.

Lorna's Laces is a hand dyed yarn company from Chicago. This 100% Superwash Wool yarn is soft and squishy, perfect for brioche projects. Brioche, the latest knitting craze creates a squishy fabric that is completely reversible and easy to wear. Pair a multi with a nearly solid for a reversible look that is both fun and fashionable. There are many different colors to choose from, everything from adorable to zany. Check out the new Splattershot colors for a unqiue, speckled look. 

A great project to test out whether brioche is right for you is Samantha Hardman's Bitchin Brioche Cowl, a basic brioche cowl for lots of practice with a warm, cozy end product. Pattern link available here: Bitchin Brioche Cowl.
