Item details

Lumo Shawl is a combination of an easy and an elegant look. But there’s a trick: it’s not as simple as it looks. The fabric plays with two contrast colors and it’s knit row by row (so there’s also purling). Yes, it’s garter stitch but with a totally different look. Even if you don’t normally like garter stitch, you’re probably going to love this. I do!

The shawl gives you an opportunity to play with different yarns and structures: by combining a dark and a light single merino yarn you get a beautiful and timeless shawl that will last you a long time. If you swap one of the yarns for lace weight mohair, it will change the look to a contemporary design that will blow your mind if choose some bold, even fluorescent colors. With mohair yarn the shawl glows totally differently - and that’s what Lumo means in Finnish: something that is extremely beautiful and glowing.

The beginning of the shawl is straightforward knitting and purling - you can watch Netflix and just enjoy. The lace pattern repeat contains 12 sts and when using markers after every section it’s easy to stay on track with the pattern and make no mistakes.

FAQs

I use professional acid dyes and quality yarns. After dying I rinse the yarns carefully. I also wash them as long as they don't bleed. Some really bright colors or yarns with a lot of speckles may bleed a little bit during first washes and that's normal. After washing I let them dry for a couple of days but never hang them when they all wet so they won't stretch.

Although most of my yarns are superwash merino, I recommend cold hand-wash. That's how the dye stays at its best. For the same reason I never wash my knitted items without any reason, only if they have stains. Fresh air is usually enough. I have tested my yarns in washing machine. And yes, the dye stays. But still: cold hand-wash, please!

Kyllä voi! Vastaan mieluusti, jos sinulla on kysyttävää.

Yes you can, just contact me in 14 days of delivery and ship them back in 21 days. I do understand that even though I try to photograph the yarns as they are in nature and be as realistic as possible, we can see them differently from different screens. Buyers are responsible for shipping costs for both ways. I return the cost of the item.

I like there's a main color and some speckles to support the idea. I don't want them to be too fuzzy so they match with other yarns easily. I also like using white as an element. It brightens the look and makes yarn vivid. I like to keep color combinations interesting and contemporary, and I read a lot of fashion magazines. I want my yarns also to match the clothes I'm wearing. I have recipes for the color combos but I prefer using my eyes. That's why the next dye lot is never exactly the same. If you like to have a bigger amount of some colorway, please contact me. I do custom orders.

There are no animals in my dying studio, but we have cats at home. I store my yarns in boxes at home and even though I wouldn't let the cats near the yarns, I can't guarantee totally animal free zone for the yarns, sorry!
