Unleashed

Lindsay Lewchuk 2019 New Releases, Patterns, Puddles

Around here, leashes are rarely worn by dogs, but are often seen attached to humans. Why settle for common nylon, when you can knit “Unleashed” and enjoy the luxury of accessorizing with pure silk. Silk, while softer than a newborn pup’s ear, filament to filament, is stronger than steel. Tough enough to halt a barreling Great Dane, yet gentle enough to soothe his very particular eco human’s wrist, there’s no other way to roam through the woods, “Unleashed”.
