Andrea Mowry - MISKY The Weekender Light Bundle - DYE TO ORDER
*dyed to order will ship in 3-4 weeks from date of purchase*
The Weekender, originally designed for worsted weight yarn and released a few years ago, is my most popular pattern to date and it may not surprise you that a lighter weight version has been the most frequent request in my inbox!
The Weekender Light is available in 10 sizes, is knit up in fingering weight yarn and has a few adjustments that I hope will result in another favorite sweater for your handknit wardrobe!

Natural dyes fade beautifully with time and may run a bit when washed but will retain their vibrancy with proper care. We recommend hand washing in cold water with a drop of pH neutral detergent and laying flat to dry away from direct sunlight.
Why pH neutral detergent?
Most commercial, even all natural detergents, are acidic or alkaline solutions that could alter naturally dyed colors. For example, we use citric acid or lime juice as a modifier to dye bright reds with cochineal. An acidic (or alkaline) detergent can have a similar result, breaking down dyes and changing colors even in the first wash.
