After yesterday I thought that we would have a break before more new yarns arrived – I was wrong.
Today saw the arrival of the new 100% recycled yarn from Rowan – Revive!! Made from 36% recycled silk, 36% recycled cotton, and 28% recycled viscose, this DK weight yarn has a wonderful tweeded look with rich flecks of colour – and the pattern book has projects for both men and women, from small cardigans to full size cabled sweaters.
We also received some more of Schaefer yarns “Anne” – 4oz of handdyed sock/lace yarn. Lighter than a 4-ply yarn but a little heavier than a 2-ply lace weight, this yarn knits up beautifully for either type of project.
Another lace weight is a new yarn from Noro – Sekku. 50grs, 420m of Noro’s classic striping yarn. Comprised of 50%cotton, 17%wool, 17%nylon, 16%silk this looks to become a favorite summer lace knitting yarn.
