Autumn is a wonderful time of the year on Salt Spring Island. We are lucky to be able to grow and harvest an amazing selection of nature’s bounty every fall. As late summer moves into autumn, I love watching the colours of the island’s orchards change as the fruit ripens – their colours feed my imagination as I wander on my walks. One of the first signs of autumn for me, is spotting the different varieties of apples as they start to shift their colours and become yellow, or red tones and the rainbow of colours in between. Picture yourself wrapped in the warm colours of ripening fruit with your own Autumn Orchard wrap.

This was my first experience weaving with Harrisville Shetland yarn. Although the fabric on the loom looked and felt like burlap, the shawls after wet finishing are amazing! Soft, in a sturdy / rustic way (as compared to the buttery softness of merino or alpaca). I will definitely use this yarn again, if vendors are ever able to get it back in stock. The colors chosen for this kit are gorgeous together.
