Spotlight on Simply Fine

In our last blog post, we told you about the mohair used in several of the Spinnery yarns. In this post we will shine the spotlight on Simply Fine.  This is a fingering weight yarn that softly stripes in a range of subtle natural and handpainted colors. The natural dark and natural white skeins are solids; the white would be lovely for wedding accessories.

Fibers for this yarn are GREENSPUN using vegetable based soaps and oils in the processing and then washed gently to keep the natural sheen and resilience. This yarn will bloom and become fuzzier with use.

Each skein of Simply Fine is unique as it is dyed in small batches. One 100g skein has about 450 yards giving you many options for selecting a project.  One or two skein shawl projects are perfect for summer as they are easy to travel with and work up fairly quickly.

The Putney Shawl, designed by Angela Tong, was published in the 2012 Knitscene Accessories. This triangular-shaped shawl features a garter portion knit from side to side. The yarnovers form loops along the edge of the shawl. Then the stitches are picked up for the mesh border and knit downwards. Catkin is the color shown.
