Spotlight: Falkland Aran Yarn and Pattern Book

September 27, 2016

Fall is finally here and it's a great time to start a new, real meaty project!  Think cables and textured stitches.  Falkland Aran is the perfect yarn and the Falkland Aran Book has the perfect patterns to sink your teeth into!

Style

Falkland Aran is 100% Merino from sheep that are organically farmed on the Falkland Islands. This wonderfully soft yarn has a tight twist which gives it fantastic stitch definition. It's perfect for cables and textured stitches. 

Default Title

The Falkland Aran  Book has 12 patterns that showcase the beauty of Falkland Aran. The pattern book is unique in that there are patterns for women, men and children! Here are some details on a few of our favorites.
