Product details

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of British literature and period dramas. One of my absolute favorites in Elizabeth Gaskell's North & South, a novel of class struggle and romance set in the town of Milton in Northern England. It's also a novel of binaries: the titular north and south, rich and poor, masculine and feminine, softness and strength, all set in the background of mill towns and their place in the industrial revolution. When Clara first hinted that this yarn was on its way--wool from a British clip, spun at one of America's most historic mills, I couldn't help but think of the same binaries. The yarn held with it some intangible romance, steeped in history and tradition on both sides of the Atlantic. I tried to honor all parts of that with this scarf--sweeping, shifting, modern cables intersect and curve on a background of traditional, humble, lovely seed stitch. And of course, I had to name it Thornton!

The sample was knit in Clara Yarn Shetland 1.0. A substitute yarn is shown below.
