What do you knit for someone truly special? If you can, you save your pennies and splurge on a glorious yarn, taking your time to knit a truly special gift from it.
But what kind of glorious yarn might that be? This week I show you one contender called Lux #12, which comes to us from Buffalo Gold and the Lorna's Laces dyepots. Its fiber contents read like a Julia Child recipe, blending just the right proportions of American bison, cashmere, silk, and Tencel. Shall we swatch?
