As I am sure you have noticed, we have a few more months of winter left. Though mittens, hats, etc seem appropriate, as the Winter drags on you may just need something a bit fresher, lighter, something you can work on to remind you that yes, Spring is coming. We have a handful of new yarns to help you do just that.
The first up is a delicious, soft, pima cotton/bamboo (60/40) blend from Frog Tree in a DK weight. I love the feel of this yarn. Pima cotton is a nice long-staple cotton, and when blended with bamboo it seems to have both substance and softness.
Next up is a nice selection from Sirdar.
Smiley Stripes is a DK weight 80/20 Bamboo wool in playful stripes with a bit of a sheen.
Summer Stripes is a 60/40 Cotton/Acrylic blend in a DK weight. It has a nice mat finish, and the striping looks to be a bit erratic, with fun colors showing up here and there.
Sirdar kisses is not officially part of the new summery group, but I do not know that it has ever been featured. It is a super soft nylon acrylic DK weight with a very subtle striping in gentle pastels.
