Orient Express Collar Kit

(1503-14-KT-C)

With the purchase of this kit, you have access to the free class about how to punch the fur, pick up stitches, and complete your project.

The Orient Express is one of the most beautiful and luxurious trains on earth. When you step inside, you are transported to another era: 1920's Art Deco luxury. You'll be glad you brought your prettiest frocks, gloves to wear on the way to the dining car. If you begin your winter journey in Venice, you may not need a sweater or coat, but as the train journeys North through the countryside toward London, you will be glad you brought warm clothes and especially your Orient Express Collar (30" L x 7" W). 

Sold for a limited time during the Fall and Winter months, the Orient Express Collar can only be purchased in a complete kit. The kit includes the most luxurious faux furs Noni could find, a skein of beautiful bulky yarn, a JUL closure, and the pattern instructions. All of the collars are made in furs so soft and delicious you might have trouble believing they are human creations and no live creatures were harmed.

Like their luxury locomotive namesake, these no-sew, easy knitting projects are the picture of elegance, beauty, sophistication, and romance. Let one be yours.

All Collar Kits contain the following:

  • Orient Express pattern
  • A beautiful hand-cut, luxurious faux fur collar piece: choose from Minky, Siberian Fox, Tawny Fox, Misty Ocelot, and a limited supply of Snow Leopard and Silver Rabbit
  • 1 skein of Luxurious bulky yarn color-matched to the faux fur piece
  • 1 coordinating JUL closure

    Anushka Hat Complete Kit

    (1504-KT-C-)

    Type:

    As soon as the weather turned the least bit cool in Autumn, even before the leaves started to turn and drop to the ground, Anushka donned one of her many furry hats. She loved the delicious softness on the inside, the poof of the fur around her face, the hand-knitted crown, the way the warmth spread through her even on the coolest mornings, the windiest days, the bitterest nights. Even late into the Spring, when the crocuses had pushed their way through the loamy soil and tulip leaves were starting to taunt her with the promise of blossoms still weeks away, she wore her hats. And so, that is how these hats came to be called Anushka hats.
