We've test-knit and felted Namaskar, the new yoga mat carrier kit from Pollika, a Vancouver-based company specializing in knitting accessories and yarn. Â Namaskar was great fun to knit with a simple lace design that literally flew off big 15mm needles. Â And then came the fun experience of watching as merino wool felted into a sturdy and beautiful carrier. Â Our Lululemon mat fits perfectly and the carrier's ergonomic design ensures comfortable transport whether walking or biking.
Note: Â Our test knit used purple wool cording in the handle and top tie, but we noted a bit of colour bleeding onto the undyed merino during the felting process, so we've chosen to use undyed cording in the kits. Â We love the look of the creamy white Â merino but it would be easy to add your own colour personality to the project with natural or acid dyes. Â Kit includes 3 100gm skeins ofÂ Yarnundyed Aran Merino, 5 meters of De Witte Engle Woolen Cord, and pattern.
