The yarn is yummy. It's a bulky weight with a super tight twist. Around here, we call that "sproingy". And I'm going to say it's a "technical" term. Or at least as technical as we're ever going to get. It's pictured here undyed, but we'll be dyeing it all of our colors.
So, the details. This is 90% superwash merino and 10% nylon. Why nylon, you ask? Well here's the logic: There isn't enough nylon in it to make the hand of the yarn feel any different than 100% merino, but that much nylon will make the yarn nice and strong. So, if you are the sort that loves a nice knit slipper, this yarn would be perfect.
Perhaps Cadeautje by Ysolda.
Of course the yarn isn't just about slippers, it's also be a fine choice for a nice chunky sweater or a fabulous hat and mittens or scarves or .... You name it, this will work. I swoon when I think what will happen to cables or of curling up under a toasty blanket made with this yarn.
Perhaps something like Susan Hanlon's Stylish Squares Blanket?
Between the superwash and the nylon, a blanket would be pretty bullet proof.
This will knit up at about 3.5 sts/inch. A 100g hank witll have 120 yards. Lovely, don't you agree?
I think that about covers the details. Except for the name. Can you help?
Email your suggestion to email@example.com. We'll narrow it down to the top three when I get back from vacation on December 1 and then we'll put it up for a vote. Winner will get a bag of the new yarn in the color of their choice.
Pretty sweet don't you think?
