Nesepelem and Pure Pima

Here’s a summertime sweater project that we have yet to share with you all – it’s Nespelem, by the incomparable Norah Gaughan (found in her Volume 8), in a new shop-favorite, Pure Pima by Berroco.

Pure Pima is only $6.00 per 115 yard skein, and is 100% Pima Cotton. It’s machine washable (lay flat to dry). According to Berroco, it’s “a carefully calibrated balance between mercerized and unmercerized plies, this cotton is an instant staple.” We tend to agree with their assessment, and are all head-over-heels for this shop sample.
