Countdown to Knitmas: Day 10!

Hi guys! Lois wanted me to share this project idea with you today, it uses 1 skein of the luscious Reywa Fibers 100% Yak Down "Embrace" yarn.

Here's what the company has to say about this wonderful yarn:

"Inspired by the warm embrace we received from Tibetan friends when we first entered their homes, our first yarn – Embrace – is 100% pure yak down of the finest quality. Sumptuously warm and luxuriously soft, Embrace yarns make truly unforgettable accessories. Perfect for a shawl or wrap, a cowl or scarf, a winter’s hat or luxe gloves, Reywa yarns have a buttery handle that is absolutely wonderful to knit with. Our yarn also re-knits well, ensuring those inevitable small mistakes won’t show up in your finished project. As pieces made with Reywa’s 100% yak down yarns are worn, the yarn blooms slowly, creating a lovely halo of warmth that increases the unique quality of the item"

Lois is knitting this cowl right now, which is a free pattern with the purchase of a skein of Embrace:
You know, as someone who works at a yarn store and sees customer's projects all day long, sometimes I get "project envy", where I'm totally jealous of someone else's project and it looks so much more fun to knit than what I've got on my needles. Lois is knitting this cowl out of the Reywa Embrace, and I'm totally jealous of it!

The yarn is so buttery soft and smooth, and has great stitch definition, It's good stuff! If you want to come pick up a skein of it for yourself, be sure to ask for the free pattern for this cowl! It'll knit up great into a treasured gift (or maybe just keep it for yourself, I won't tell!)

Happy knitting!
