All is Calm Mandala Sachet

These little mandala sachets are fun to make with stash yarn but especially nice when made with alpaca yarn. The softness of alpaca invites squishing which releases the wonderful scent of lavender. Crocheting/knitting friends will appreciate the moth repellent quality of these sachets for their yarn stashes. Non-crafty friends will love the lavender scent when used as drawer sachets. They make a nice holiday gift and are easily personalized since there are so many color combinations to play with.
