Originally inspired by the natural formation of desert varnish on the rocks of the Southwest, the High Desert Wrap uses the rich tonal colors of our hand dyed yarn, Whirl. Using three colors that intertwine and interact like the desert varnish phenomenon throughout the pattern, you will create a stunning wrap that will keep you warm on those cold high desert nights. Dita Frank, the daughter of Merce Mitchell, has created this pattern that elevates the playful interaction of colors and gives you an inspirational knit.
High Desert Wrap needs three colors of Vortexyarns Whirl ( Superwash Merino/ 434 yds each/115g/ fingering weight/ wash cold/ dry flat/ hand dyed by Merce Mitchell).
Each Kit comes with all yarn needed (choose your colorway) and the pattern.
