We’ve got a new yarn to share with you this week, our Simply Fine Skinnies!
These gorgeous skeins of blended bale-dyed fine wool and baby soft kid mohair are put up in skeins that have half the yardage of our undyed Simply Fine skeins that you already know and love. This yarn includes the softest fiber that we work with at the Spinnery; and now is available in an irresistible spectrum of luscious colors that could be used for some of this season’s most popular patterns that call for fingering or sport weight yarn.
Thanks to our woolen spinning process and this yarn’s single ply construction, it blooms beautifully when washed. This allows it to gracefully accommodate a wide range of gauges.
Kate quickly cast on with a skein of the Golden Hour color to make a Thermal Cap. Just one 224 yard skein provides more than enough yardage for the FREE pattern. It knits up quickly for a light weight cap that is perfect for crisp autumn mornings.
These beautiful skeins could also be used to work up a stunning Mercury Rising Shawl. You’d need 2 skeins each of two contrasting colors. Or you might want to consider pairing a single pop of color with one of the neutral undyed options. You could even try working the pattern with four different colors. What a fun experiment!
All 9 colors have been named for some of our favorite simple pleasures from gazing at the stars on a clear dark night, to the smell of woodsmoke in the air on a crisp cool morning.
We can’t think of a better way to celebrate Fall than with some seasonal color on our needles. We hope that you find working with this yarn to become one of your simple pleasures. Enjoy!
