Editor’s Note: As one of her Yarn Lab samples, Liz sent us a beautiful scarf. It was so lovely we decided to provide a little more information about it in case anyone wanted to weave something similar. Please note that because of how Fidalgo dyes their yarns, some colors may no longer be available, and new lots will probably not exactly match old lots.
