Godey’s Shawl 1864 Kit, Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool


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
