Knitting, Yarn

Yarn Love

These are the top five amazing yarns I’m dying to knit with this Spring/Summer…

1). Willow & Lark Plume

Version 2

70% Super kid mohair & 30% mulberry silk, Plume is a gorgeous 2-ply lace weight yarn that’s just begging to be knit up into a scrumptious lace shawl… I think this shade (Silver Birch) is to die for, but they have many other lovely colors as well!

2). Art Yarns Merino Cloud

Version 2

80% Fine merino wool & 20% cashmere, this DK/fingering weight yarn is the definition of cozy luxury! I want to knit it up into a matching hat/mitts/cowl set to wear this coming Fall/Winter! And did I mention that this yarn is hand-dyed?! I’m loving this Tweed colorway (#165), but there are additional glorious color ways available as well!

3). Manos Del Uruguay Silk Blend Fino

Version 2

70% Extrafine merino wool & 30% silk in a plush single-spun, this gorgeous fine fingering weight yarn would be a dream to knit and wear! And the hand-dyed colorways are simply magical! I’m feeling particularly drawn to Corsage (#401)… I’d probably make another shawl, or maybe a lacey scarf… πŸ™‚

4). Purl Soho Linen Quill

Version 2

Just look at that sheen! And the texture…! Linen Quill is 50% fine highland wool, 35% alpaca, & 15% linen in a fingering weight yarn that knits up light and airy with great stitch definition and texture. Perfect for (yet) another shawl, or a light and breezy top! They have lots of exciting new colors this year, but I’m still finding myself partial to this one (Lavender Opal #1620LQ). πŸ™‚

5). Cestari Monticello Collection

Version 2

75% Cotton & 25% linen and made in the USA! This lovely yarn is the very definition of Summer knitting and is available in a 3-ply DK weight as well as a 2-ply fingering (sock) weight! The kettle-dyed colors are simply beautiful, but I’m especially drawn to this one (Tansy). πŸ™‚ I’d love to knit a sleeve-less Summer top, or a skirt, or some Summer socks in this gorgeous yarn!

What yarns are you crushing over this Season?

  1. The Plume is beautiful! What a gorgeous pale lilac. Manos is a terrific company. I’ve only knitted with their fingering once; it’s plush and soft. I know linen would feel good to wear, but I can’t just yet bring myself to knit with it or cotton. I think of my hands and wrists and cringe.

    1. Yes! And linen gets softer the more you wear and wash it. Yeah, it is a good deal tougher on the hands and wrists. Maybe a smaller project on finer yarn would be a good way to start if/when you decide you want to… πŸ˜‰πŸ˜ŠπŸ’—

  2. These are amazing, and looks so soft. And delicate. I am sure they are going to knit up beautifully.
    We have some stunning local to South African yarns here that I have stocked up on and hope to knit some as well. πŸ™‚ Soon at least.
