Cocoknits Sweater Care Kit

The Cocoknits Sweater Care Kit contains everything you need for blocking and handwashing your hand-knit items and all of your fine hand-washables. To block seamless sweaters or accessories which do not require pinning, and to wash seamed sweaters whether hand-knit or store-bought, the Sweater Care Kit is perfect. It can be used alone, or in conjunction with the Knitter’s Block kit.

If you knit mostly scarves, shawls, seamed sweaters and other pin-able items, the Knitter’s Block kit is probably best for you.

The Sweater Care Kit includes:
- Two fine mesh, zippered laundry bags (small: 8" × 12 × 8", large: 8" × 22" × 8")
- One large super-absorbent towel (dimensions 36" × 60")
- One super-absorbent grid towel, inches and centimeters on opposite sides (dimensions 40" × 40")
- One mesh pop-up dryer (dimensions 28" × 34" opened, 11" diameter folded)
- A bottle of unscented Eucalan wash
- Jute bag (dimensions 15" × 12" × 5")

Storage / Project Box

This storage / project box is an exercise in simplicity, but with details that make it amazing. The designs are hand-drawn and screenprinted by Arounna on natural, unbleached linen fabric, which she then sews into these beautiful, fully lined vessels.

Sturdy enough to stand on its own and hold your current craft or knitting project (or supplies, or a houseplant, or whatever you dream up), it also folds flat when not in use — if you can imagine that ever happening!

- made in Canada
- entirely handcrafted
- solvent-free ink screenprinted on 100% natural linen
- fully lined with 100% organic cotton canvas
- base is approx 6 x 7 inches; approx 7 inches tall
- folds flat
- no two are exactly alike

Dangling Conversation KAL

Upcoming KAL...

Dangling Conversation knit with sparrow:
Designed by Mindy Ross, this flirty little “number” doesn’t leave conversation dangling for long, if at all! Quite the eye catcher and ‘conversation’ starter! This cute little crescent shaped shawl/scarf/kerchief adds dimension with any outfit. Constructed in linen, it’s wonderful for staying cool…in the hot days of summer, and a lovely embellishment in the cold of Winter.

Quince & Company Sparrow is a plain little yarn, beautiful in its simplicity. Its clean, smooth hand is crisp as you knit it. But after washing and wearing it becomes handkerchief-soft and drapey. It’s spun in Italy from organic linen grown in Belgium. Knit Sparrow on a variety of needle sizes depending on the drape and feel you want in your project. The yarn is a natural in lace patterns, carving out the yarn overs, but it’s fluid, too, in simple stockinette. It’s great in tanks, shawls, and breezy cardigans, and lovely as can be in bags, wash cloths, and other home accessories.
