This week, we are really excited to be introducing another new yarn base. Coastal is a fingering weight, 50/50 blend of superwash merino and cotton. This yarn is very soft and knits up into a lovely drapey fabric. It's fabulous for people who live in warmer climates and for spring/summer items.
This yarn is a little different than most of our other bases: it has 50% cotton that resists our protein-reactive dyes. This means that the yarns dye up with lovely heathered hues. I've been designing a summer top using Coastal and I've really enjoyed working with it, so much so that I'm casting on another top in this yarn. Perfect for all types of projects, from shawls to tops and cardigans, we think you're really going to love Coastal!
Our new Coastal yarn will be available in the shop Friday 3rd April.
