DesigningVashti YARNS

As of January 1, 2014, we've added our first yarn, called Lotus, to the DesigningVashti pattern shop! Doris Chan and I have been designing and writing crochet patterns in a wide range of yarns for almost a decade.
Each ball is 256 yds, 3.5 oz (100 g).
Sport weight blend of cotton and rayon.
"The verdict? This just may be the yarn you didn’t know you were looking for, especially if you make garments.  It’s a pleasure to crochet with, sliding smoothly over your hands and hook, and is wonderful for making next-to-the-skin soft projects. It has just enough body to hold lace stitches clearly while being soft enough to drape beautifully." M.K. Carroll, Things We Love (Knit Edge Magazine yarn review)
