As we reported earlier, a huge shipment of yarn slid in the door just before Christmas. We are still sorting it all out, so this is the first of several installments.
We set out looking for fabulous multi-color yarns that felt as good as they looked. I think you will be quite pleased with what we found.
Mushishi - a worsted weight wool/silk blend yarn. There are several things to love about this yarn
•soft and luscious
•great value (491yds for only $29.99)
•pattern included on the label
That’s right, included on the label is the pattern for a one-skein hat & scarf set to KNIT and CROCHET.
Trabajos del Peru - a 100% extra fine merino wool. This heavy worsted weight yarn is so incredibly soft and the colors are brilliant! It’s subtle thick-n-thin texture resembles handspun wool. This luscious yarn is also a great value (147yds for $13.99)
Plymouth has some great free patterns on their website for the Trabajos. We have a class on Saturday for these one-skein Cabled Mitts (don’t worry, we will offer it again in February if you can’t come tomorrow), and on their blog is a two-skein Cowl.
We are also excited about Mistero, a colorful wool-blend bulky knit yarn from Adriafil. Featuring subtle waves of color, you get Italian style at a great price (99yds for $6.99).
Adriafil features three free patterns on their website for the Mistero including this stylish jacket, a zip-front pullover, and a scarf/hat twin set. This is an Italian company, so the needle sizes listed in these patterns will be mm sizes.
All three of these gorgeous yarns can be found at both SWAK locations. Come feel them in person - you won’t be disappointed!
