Mountain Retreat is a peaceful colorway, creating an escape to a mountain top for you. One skein is my Pagoda colorway, rich browns with a bit of black, and the other skein is my Shinrin-yoku colorway, a tonal combination of greens and tans. Pagoda is on my Worn Suitcase base and Shinrin-yoku is on my Broken Compass base.
This set was originally created for Casapinka’s Hug Shot. This shawl requires two skeins of at least 400 yards each, one in a solid color and the other in a speckled/variegated colorway. If this kit is ordered before June 7th, 2020, you will be emailed a coupon code to receive the pattern for free on Ravelry. Coupon codes will be emailed out starting on June 2nd, though yarn may be ordered before that.

Please note if a color is listed as a ‘backorder’ option, it will be dyed to order and may take up to a week to ship.
Please note that color variations may occur from skein to skein as a result of hand dyeing. I have matched the colors in the photo as close as real life as possible however some differences may be noticed from monitor to monitor. Please also order as many skeins as you need for your project as color variation may happen one dye lot to the next.
