Chicago Peace Handspun Yarn
We love this blend developed by Hipstrings Modern Fiber Arts! Named for the famous Chicago Peace Rose, the color is rich and inviting. Sand spun this into a 3 ply fingering to sport weight yarn. It has a lovely drape! We think this would make a glorious hat, cowl, or gloves for someone special! It would also make a wonderful shawlette, perfect for cool mornings.
