Fly Away Sweater (Adult)
$130.00 – $170.00
This kit provides the yarn and pattern for the Fly Away Sweater! This is a great first sweater pattern for beginner knitters, and still fun for more experienced knitters! It’s lofty and light, while also being warm and cozy!
The colorful yarn is handspun at Calypso, made from Shetland wool from Calypso’s flock and blended with mohair and silk. The solid colored yarn is mill spun, sourced from wool grown sustainably in the United States. All proceeds from wool sales benefit Calypso’s educational programs.
