September has arrived and with it a new website, new yarns and new ideas!
Along with locally sourced yarns I am excited to offer 2 new lines: O-Wool, Local and Green Mountain Spinnery, Alpaca Elegance!!
O-Wool local is made in USA and contains 50% certified organic merino and 50% alpaca from farms in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Each skein is 240 yd / 219 m per 3.5 oz / 100 g with a recommended gauge of 18-20 stitches = 4 in / 10 cm on 7 - 9 US / 4.5 - 5.5 mm needles.Presently I have 17 colours for you to choose from!
Green Mountain Spinnery Alpaca Elegance is a 2 ply DK weight yarn and contains 50% New England Alpaca and 50% fine wool also grown in the US. It comes in 12 colours of 2 oz / 58 g skeins and is 180 yd / 165 m. The recommended gauge for this yarn is 5 st per inch / 2.5 cm on US size 6 / 4 mm needles. It is suitable for colour work and I am presently knitting a pullover by Ysolda Teague called Blank Canvas in the shade Cappuccino.
Use the links on the Visit page for more information and to view the colours. They will be added to my online shop in the near future.
