Yarn Trend Report,
Spring is popping up in the fiber world with soft, delicate colors and decadent lightness, much like the sweet flowers opening up out of the fresh-tilled earth. The yarns are like a dream against the skin, with scrumptious luxury yarns blending beautifull
➊ Mulberry silk and superwash merino in a single-ply sport weight makes for a decadently supple yarn that floats across the needles with ease. As luxurious as it is durable, with a rich color palette, the exquisite new Estilo from Plymouth Yarn will delight knitters of every level.
➋ Berroco’s new DK-weight yarn, Corsica, available in gorgeous heathered hues, has cotton and cashmere blended together as if you had just blended clouds and marshmallows. Yes, it is that soft and decadent. The moderate twist lends itself beautifully to any stitch pattern, but the fact that it is machine-washable makes us swoon all the more.
➌ Classic Elite Soft Linen is the epitome of winter-to-spring transition in a DKweight yarn. The wool, linen and alpaca blend has just enough texture, depth and lightness to charm knitters all year round, especially for smooth or lacy projects. With delicate palettes of muted shades, everyone will find something they love.
➍ Sueño, pronounced “Swain-Yo” means “dream” in Spanish and, indeed, this heavy DK-weight yarn from the HiKoo Peru Collection captures that essence. A tight twist of merino and bamboo results in a lofty, bouncy yarn that soaks up texture as if born for it, while remaining a delicate and soft must-have for every knitter.
