Viriditas, named after the farm where its journey began, is a little celebration of the wonderful place we find ourselves in the fiber world. We are so fortunate to have incredible people like the passionate folks at A Verb for Keeping Warm, Oakland CA, dedicated to connecting pastures to pullovers, the sheep to the shawls. Pioneer, the yarn used for this reversible crescent shaped shawl, is a CA grown organic Merino, and close to my heart.
