Yarn Review: Hemp Tweed Chunky

December 05, 2016

Hemp Tweed Chunky is a beautiful yarn and is wonderful to work with.  The hemp tweed blend has a slightly rustic look.

The swatch was done using size US 10 needles. It's soft, blocks out wonderfully and will continue to soften with use.

We're participating in Fibershed's first KAL!  The Fibershed KAL was launched at the recent Wool Symposium.

The pattern is Radiata, a super cute hap style shawl by Emily Cunetto.  


Our yarn choice is Twirl Yarn from Twirl Farm in beautiful Napa County, part of our Fibershed.  We recently had an opportunity to visit Twirl Farm and spend the day dying yarn with Mary Pettis-Sarley so we have a special connection with this yarn.   

We're making good progress so far.  We're loving the pattern and of course, we're loving the yarn!

Yarn Review: Dromedary

November 29, 2016

Camel and merino - what a wonderful blend!  Dromedary is so, so nice to work with. Soft, has a wonderful hand and glides right off the needles. Dromedary is the type of yarn that makes you want to keep on knitting!  


Size US 6 metal needles were used for the swatch. The fabric produced has such a nice drape and a very luxurious feel.  Love it!
