I’m really excited about this new offering of Merino/Lambswool/Angora yarn. The fibers all come from Oklahoma farm animals. The first colorways are up in the online shop and several more colorways will be added next week.
220 yards is a small skein but that little amount of yarn cozied up around your neck in a soft cowl or scarf will make you feel like a million! In fact, I snagged a skein of the Wine and Roses for myself and printed a copy of Pretty Thing, the lovely cowl design by Stephanie Pearl McPhee, the Yarn Harlot. There is plenty of yarn in the Merino/Lambswool/Angora for the delicate Pretty Thing.
And if you’re as taken with the combination of Pretty Thing knit up in our Merino/Lambswool/Angora as several of us are – there is talk behind the scenes of a KAL (knit along) that will take place on the Fans of Lost City Knits Ravelry group.
I’ve already cast on my Pretty Thing just to see how it fits the flow and oooh la la it looks lovely! I’m setting it aside for the moment (I may have to hide it from myself for a few days just to keep from knitting “just one more row”) until the KAL starts.
Also I’ll be in Tulsa on Saturday morning and will have a few skeins of this yarn with me if you’d like to pick one up without shipping costs. Cafe Cubana – 9ish – come out and do some public knitting!
