Aperture Stole Kit
Exquisite fibers and colors from Fyberspates make for one of the most beautiful designs we’ve offered. Gleem Lace blends Bluefaced Leicester and silk for subtle luster and saturated color. Cumulus combines alpaca and silk for a quietly fluffy yarn. Scroll down for important information about these yarns and Jeanette Sloan’s Aperture Stole pattern.

An airy confection, the Aperture Stole is Jeanette Sloan’s imagination at its most free. Two different yarns, three different colors, two lace patterns, and a stripe pattern converge in an exquisite result. This little kit makes for an amazing journey—work it as shown in the pattern, or play with these elements as you like.
Kit contains 1 skein Gleem Lace for Color A, 1 ball Cumulus in Color B, and 3 balls Cumulus in Color C. Pattern for Aperture Stole appears in MDK Field Guide No. 15: Open and is sold separately.
A Note About This Kit
Complicated times mean tricky situations. Covid-19 disrupted our ability to carry the yarns shown in this Field Guide, so we have brought in yarns to substitute. This kit calls for two yarns, so we’ve brought in two Fyberspates yarns.
Gleem Lace definitely differs from the yarn shown in the Field Guide in terms of weight, luster, and fuzziness. Gleem Lace is more a true laceweight, rather than the light fingering shown below. Gleem Lace adds a low luster and a silkier drape. A gorgeous effect, less woolly.
Cumulus is the second yarn we’re offering in this kit. Its blend is exactly the same 74% suri alpaca, 26% silk of the original yarn.
We’ll have an Aperture Stole sample to show you shortly—it looks very similar to what you see here. We love it and think you will, too.
Here are images from the Field Guide, which give a nice view of the lace and stripe patterns.
