Sample time!

Spring is just around the corner, and this adorable Kelsey Dress is the perfect knit for the little girl in your life! Michelle used one just one skein of Recycled Tweed by @queenslandcollection for the smallest size and had leftovers! Sized for ages 12 months - 6 years, this cute little dress is perfect for spring or paired with a shirt and leggings on chillier days. Recycled Tweed is a DK-weight yarn made of 100% recycled materials, making it an earth-friendly and pretty choice.

We have lots of choices that work with this great little pattern. In addition to Recycled Tweed, Michelle recommends Malabrigo Arroyo or Plymouth Dreambaby.

The Mountain Town Cowl by Elizabeth Doherty @bluebeestudio in Baby Alpaca Worsted EC by @plymouthyarn is the softest thing ever! One skein of this machine-washable (really!) 100% alpaca yarn is all you need to create this fun and beautiful knit. Squish it for yourself in the shop! 😊
