Saona is a delightful, lightweight transitional season and summer yarn. It's a blend of 50% Spanish Merino and Manchega wool and 50% Andalusian cotton - all of it traceable, grown, spun and dyed in Spain. Saona is dyed before it's spun, resulting in a beautiful heathered look.
Cotton can be difficult to grow and source sustainably as it needs a lot of water to be grown. So imagine our delight when we found this blend - locally sourced and produced, by a 4th generation GOTS-certified family-owned mill!
• All fleeces & fibers in Saona are grown in Spain and completely traceable
• Dyed before spinning, leading to a beautiful heathered look
• Spun at the Wooldreamers mill - a 4th generation family-run mill - in Castilla-La Mancha in Spain
• Fiber & yarn origin: Spain
We're always excited to talk yarn and knitting and answer any questions you might have!
Variance, designed by Keiko Kikuno, is a sweater knitted sideways with a stripe pattern that is achieved using short rows. The stripe pattern was inspired by a Japanese traditional textile pattern called Tatewaku that represents how the steam rises. The sweater for sure will go well with both a skirt and pants as the length of the sweater is neither too short or too long!
Beatrice Perron Dahlen's Heron Island is a delightful, gentle take on a lace yoke sweater. The geometric stitch pattern leaves room for the yarn to shine, and is lovely to work. Knit from the top down, it can easily be modified to your desired body and sleeve length.
