Papyrus is a yarn perfect for the Australian climate, it is lightweight and silky soft making it a delight against the skin. With a beautiful soft colour range and an intriguing texture it's perfect for all sorts of projects. Papyrus' silk content also gives it a lovely subtle sheen.
We've admired many beautiful finished projects in Papyrus. It makes a lovely in between seasons cardigan such as Earthen by Amy Christoffers. Or for the little ones this Shell Border Cardiganby OGE Knitwear Designs is delightful.
