The Pattern

Shopping Shawl by Martha Marques: The shopping shawl was designed for trips to the market—use the pockets to hold your grocery list, clutch and smartphone—but you can wear it on any outing!

The Yarn

Peace Fleece NEW COLORWAY - HAND DYED- COLOR CARD: The 7 included skeins of this yarn will bring you peace!  This hand-dyed yarn is a NEW colorway—we worked with Peace Fleece and Martha Marques in choosing it to highlight the fishbone lace pattern of the shawl.  The yarn is sturdy in nature and will soften with each use.  We included a color card so you can see the lovely colorways Peace Fleece has to offer!

Your package will include either the Indigo Smoke (slate blue) or Porterfield Plum (dark plum) colorways.  Indigo Smoke is a dusty, foggy, old blue jean color. Good for people with gray/blue eyes!  Porterfield Plum is a deep purple with hints of blacks and browns mingled with brighter burgundy flecks.  Colorways will vary.  Specifications of the yarn:

  • 90% fine wool from Cottage Hill Farm in Ohio, and the Cheyenne River reservation in South Dakota, and 10% Mohair
  • Medium weight yarn, 2 ply, approx. 200 yards per 4 oz. skein.
  • With washing and wear the yarn will develop a soft halo revealing the mohair content.

NOTE: Peace fleece skeins may contain a small amount of vegetable matter.  These tiny bits of dried grass and flowers come from the pastures of South Dakota, Ohio and Texas.  Peace Fleece has chosen not to rid the yarns of this vegetation by “carbonizing” – a process where the wool is dipped in sulphuric acid.  Peace Fleece hopes that its customers will choose their yarn because it is free of this chemical and won’t mind taking the time to pick out any flecks of vegetation.
