Cloudveil Dome is one of the many beautiful high peaks of the Cathedral Group of the Grand Tetons. Majestic, serene and snowcapped even into summer.
This beautiful asymmetrical shawl combines sections of stockinette stitch with simple but elegant sections of lace for stunning effect, knitted out of Teton Yarn Company Olympic; a luxurious soft and warm blend of merino/yak/silk.
Named after Olympic National Park, Teton Yarn Company Hand Dyed Olympic Single Ply is is a delicious blend of 65% Superwash Merino, 20% Silk and 15% Yak. The Yak gives the yarn its natural colouring, and provides this yarn with a warm base. The yak this yarn gives wonderful rich and warm colours. These skeins are heavier at 120 grams and so have more yardage to make into one skein fingering weight shawls so you can enjoy the warmth and softness close to your skein.

Dyeing: Teton Yarn Company uses color fast acid dyes on all our yarns. My yarns are all hand dyed by me in my yarn studio in Teton Valley, Idaho. Yarns are dyed in groups of 2-3 in most cases and I do my best to ensure consistency in each batch, however, there will be some variation even within a dye lot. Different dye lots will be siblings, rather than twins, so it is recommended you order enough for a project in one order for best results.
