Mackworth Sweater Bundle by Drea Renee Knits with Ritual Dyes

The Mackworth Sweater by Drea Renee Knits was originally a personal project she created for herself, and we’re so excited she publicised this pattern for us to try too!

Our newest Ritual Dyes yarn is Maven, a gorgeous rustic feeling 2-ply. We are currently the only stockists of this yarn this side of the world! We created bundles Andrea’s original colourway with varying sizes.

This sweater was a little gift to myself last Spring. I designed it as I went and it filled me right up! I hope it fills you up too and that when you wear it, you get a big ol’ dose of self love! Knit from the top down seamlessly, you can try it on as you go to get the right fit for you! – Andrea Mowry

This yarn bundle contains Andrea’s original colourways:

Main Colour: Bone
Colour A: Clay
Colour B: Heartwood
Colour C: Quartzite

Important: This bundle features the original colourways for the Mackworth pictured in Andrea’s sample. However, due to the artisan nature of these yarns and colour saturation variation of each dye lot, we cannot guarantee that your finished knit will exactly match the designer’s sample. Please allow for colour variation, and enjoy your unique knit! Contact us for any further colourway specifications or special requests.
