Diane's Corner: Pure Linen Yarn Review

June 16, 2014

Diane is guest blogging today about one of her summer crushes on Rowan’s Pure Linen.

pure-linen-styleReleased as part of Rowan’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection, Pure Linen has become a store favorite.  Made of 100% natural linen, Pure Linen has a soft sheen, relaxed drape and is easy on the hands during knitting.  Available in eight earth tones, it is the perfect yarn for the light weight knits of summer.  It’s great knit up in Yumiko Alexander’s Forest Weave pattern.

If you’re looking for more pattern inspiration, Rowan released a Pure Linen collection that you have to check out.

Tibetan Cloud Worsted is gracefully soft and incredibly warm.  Think about it.  Don’t yaks live in cold climates?  Their insulating fur can do the same for you — keep you nice and toasty!  Try this yarn out for its softness, warmth and durability.  You will not be disappointed.

Meet our new yarn: Cotton Supreme

February 03, 2013

From Universal Yarns, Cotton Supreme is a machine washable (and dryable!) 100% cotton yarn. In a vivid and soft color palette, paired with its easy-care versatility, Cotton Supreme proves a great option for baby knitting. Worried that lucky youngster has some wool sensitivities? Go ahead, pick up some squishy cotton. Move over stiff yarn, Cotton Supreme will soften up as it washes.

With the seasons changing, it’s time to swap out drab winter-wear for the bright and happy colors of spring. Can you see yourself in a light cotton cardigan?

Yarn Review: Pashmina Worsted

February 02, 2013

Like its sport weight little sister Pashmina, Pashmina Worsted is a scrumptious blend of 75% merino wool, 15% silk, and 10% cashmere.  Did we mention that it’s machine washable?  Consider a merino-silk-cashmere baby blanket, or a merino-silk-cashmere cardigan, or maybe a merino-silk-cashmere plushie for that extra special child (or child at heart).  The possibilities, as they say, are endless.

Due to the silk content, projects made from Pashmina Worsted have a sheen to them.  A cowl in Pashmina Worsted is squishy, lustrous, and oh, so soft.  Consider a double-wrap cowl to keep this loveliness as close to your neck as possible.  You will not regret it.

Pashmina Worsted — in both its fiber content and gorgeous colorways —  makes it an ideal choice for handmade keepsakes.  Paired with its easy-care wash instructions, gifts in Pashmina Worsted (for yourself or for others) couple practicality with preciousness.
