The Iniko Shawl is designed by Kris Gregson and knit with two skeins of Mrs. Crosby Hat Box. She did it in our two custom colors, Cambria Cool and Cambria Warm.
Iniko is the name of Condor 1031 which hatched on April 25, 2020 in a redwood tree cavity in Big Sur, California. Iniko is a Nigerian word meaning "born during troubled times"! Iniko survived the Dolan Fire that destroyed the Big Sur Condor Sanctuary in August of 2020, so we're hoping for the best for their survival.
We're donating a percentage of the proceeds of the sale of these kits to the Ventana Wildlife Society, the amazing people that are working hard to brings these magnificent creatures back from the brink of extinction.
