Indulge in this incredible combination of silk and cashmere.
You’ll find this yarn irresistible; it has the strength and sheen of silk and the kitten-soft halo of cashmere. Light fingering yarn is a wonderful introduction to lace knitting; it’s substantial enough to hold comfortably, yet fine enough to display intricate stitchwork.
Every skein of Maggie is hand painted by Judy Maclean of Sweatermaker Yarns.

Like many special things in life, these kits come with some fine print.
About hand painted yarns. All skeins are hand picked from the Sweatermaker Yarns studio. Each skein of Maggie is hand painted and unique. Although the utmost care has been taken to represent the actual colours as accurately as possible, please note that your actual skein may not be identical to how they appear on your computer monitor.
Reserving Kits. There are a few skeins available of each color. When you add a kit to your cart, you are reserving it for one hour; during that hour, no one else can purchase it. After an hour, the kit automatically becomes available again.
Care instructions for Maggie. Hand wash very gently in cool water. Blot between towels. Lay flat to dry on a towel. Luxury fibers like cashmere and silk are soft, light and lustrous. Their delicacy is part of their magic, but does mean they need to be handled with care.
