Godey’s Shawl 1864 Kit, Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool
$49.00 – $55.00
This is a kit for knitting the 1864 Godey’s Lady’s Book Shawl. This kit uses Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool, a 45% wool, 35% silk, and 20% nylon blend. It has wonderful hand, and has a nice slightly heathered look.
If you are looking for an extremely historically accurate yarn for your shawl, order the Brown Sheep NatureSpun kit.
Kit includes 5 skeins of Silky Wool in two colors, and full knitting instructions. Size 6 straight or circular needles are optional. I do not recommend circular knitting needles for knitting in public as part of a historical demonstration.
If you would like another color combination, please contact me. I would be happy to put any other color combination together for you! Other Silky Wool Colors can be seen here: Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool
