Abloom Cardigan | Anne Ginger | Biches & Bûches Le Petit Lambswool
Abloom is the perfect layering piece for transitional seasons, designed to be lightweight yet still cosy enough to ward off the early morning or evening chill.
Inspired by the delicate beauty of spring and the early flowers, small and ethereal, almost wispy, the rib nature of the stitch pattern allows the fabric to move with the body, thus fitting a wide range of body sizes.
For this cardigan, we're bringing back Biches et Bûches Le Petit Lambswool, a 100% Scottish lambswool yarn that's delightful to knit and wear.
Bouquet Sweater | Maria Magnusson | The Fibre Co. Cumbria
Bouquet is the kind of sweater that's effortless to wear and works with everything, and also gets compliments left, right and center.
It's central lace motif, inspired by the blooming flower beds in the designer's garden, is worked up in a heavier-than-usual-yarn for lace patterns, making it a rhythmic, enjoyable knit.
I am so delighted that we get to add The Fibre Co.'s Cumbriato our yarn lineup for this release!
Cumbria is a classic, worsted-weight yarn that knits up with a lovely crisp stitch definition and next-to-skin softness. It combines South American Merino for softness, English Masham wool for warmth, and Argentinian Mohair for lustre and strength.
Circle of Life Sweater | Julia Exner | Holst Garn Supersoft
Circle of Life is inspired by life awakening again in the spring - the first tips of the hyacinths breaking out of the ground, the buds on the trees getting bigger and bigger.
The comfortable circular yoke sweater features stranded colorwork, Roosimine, and lace, with each section of the yoke representing one stage in the life of a plant.
We're so delighted that we're able to add Holst Garn to our products, starting with their super star Supersoft!
Supersoft is a classic non-superwash yarn that's perfect for colorwork. It's a blend of 50% Merino and 50% Shetland, making it both soft and durable. Hold it single for a delicate fabric or double to create a DK-weight yarn.
Happy Socktober, lovelies!! If you've been following us even for a little while, you've probably noticed that I absolutely love knitting socks.
They're the perfect portable project, great for trying out new techniques or stitch patterns, and just so, so rewarding. There's just nothing like the feeling of opening your sock drawer on a cold fall morning, picking out the pair of hand-knit socks that calls to you, and walking around with cozy, warm toes all day long.
I couldn't resist putting together a short, sweet list of 3 sock patterns I'm loving right now to kickstart this month – one makes for excellent TV-knitting, the second one is a bit more complex, and the last one is one that I've been wanting to knit for years!
One of my all-time favorite tasks when we get a new yarn in is to put together pattern and color combinations. And with Bérénice, De Rerum Natura's sustainably produced Mohair / Merino / Silk yarn (fluffy like a cloud!), the possibilities for patterns and colors are close to endless!
I'm thrilled to be back in this space, and with something really, really exciting at that! For the past year, I've been on the hunt for a sustainably-produced fluffy yarn - we used to carry Knitting for Olive's Soft Silk Mohair which is delightful, but also... everyone has it now? So I was looking for something that was a little out of the ordinary, but also responsibly sourced, and as it goes with anything that involves mohair and silk, that was really hard.
Cue De Rerum Natura, who secretly have been working behind the scenes at exactly that yarn I'd been looking for: An "as sustainably as it can get" fluff yarn that works perfectly for a broad range of projects, from whispers of lace shawls to holding it together with more substantial yarns.
We're a delightfully tiny team dedicated to all things sustainability in knitting. With our online shop filled with responsibly produced yarns, notions and patterns we're here to help you create a wardrobe filled with knits you'll love and wear for years to come.
