What is Spirits of Life CAL about?
Just to remind, Spirits of Life CAL will begin on October 18th, 2017. It will be about large rectangle wrap inspired by Native American textile and fibre art. Check THIS post to read more details about the project and to see the pictures. And if you would like to join, don’t forget to read Important Notes HERE (ideally before you actually purchase the kit!).
The CAL will be free! Every new part will be published weekly on my blog here. There is no official sign up for the CAL, but you can subscribe to my blog for any future updates about the CAL and other designs from Lilla Björn.
Spirits of Life Wrap CAL was kindly sponsored by Scheepjes. And just to prevent your doubts – no, it’s not an official Scheepjes CAL. But it was designed and prepared in collaboration with Scheepjes who produced and nicely packed yarn kits.
What’s inside the kit?
I chose two different yarns for this project, as I think they play together perfectly. And they also translate a certain mood. It’s Spirit and Catona (reviewed HERE and HERE). These yarns are very different in look and feel, but together they create a very light, warm, draping and textured fabric.
Spirits of Life CAL comes in three colorways: Spirit of the Lake, Spirit of the Volcano and Spirit of the Orchid. Each of them contains 4 shades of Spirit and 4 corresponding shades of Catona.
You will also find a ring inside the kit which we will use for a bonus project with yarn leftovers. Exciting? …But I cannot give you any further details on this… Let’s keep it a secret!
Where to find the kit?
If you would like to support me and my blog, please, purchase the kits via links provided below. These links are affiliate, and I might be compensated with a tiny amount from each order. While you will not pay anything extra. Thank you in advance! :)
Spirits of Life Wrap kits are available for purchase in local Scheepjes stores and via international retailers, such as Wool Warehouse HERE and Deramores HERE (both located in UK with international shipping), Lovektnitting HERE (US) and Knotty House HERE (Canada).

UPDATE: if you would like to create your own color combination, here are yardages used for every color in every kit. I know many of you were waiting for them. Thank you very much for patience! But please note that if you decide to use different yarn your amounts will be different, too!
