Lana Grossa Solo Lino
Solo Lino is a lovely linen yarn that uses both recycled linen (viscose) and new linen. It’s light weight with the beautiful drape like silk or bamboo. It knits up as a sport weight which makes it perfect for summer wraps and shawls when you need that slight warmth for cool summer evenings. Despite it’s delicate drape it has wonderful stitch definition and the color selection is delicious. Two projects we love for this are The Diagonal Lace Scarf and Wrap from Churchmouse and Andrea Mowry’s Goldfinch (see below).
Juniper Moon Farms Zooey
Ahhh, Spring! Soft Breezes, the smell of newly mown grass and the joy of knitting lightweight projects like tank tops, light sweaters and wraps for those twilight walks on the beach. One perfect yarn for these types of projects is Zooey by Juniper Moon Farms. Zooey is a DK weight that combines cotton and linen (60%/40%) to create the perfect blend of softness and strength. And with each washing (machine washable - hurrah!) it softens up until it feels soft as air. Available in loads of colors, come in and pick your favorite today!
