Soft­ness Reigns Supreme

Tran­si­tion­ing into spring calls for a lit­tle more light­ness and a lot more soft­ness, and we’re se­ri­ous about those dreamy, next-to-skin fibers! Spring yarns bring drape, rich color, breatha­bil­ity and stitch def­i­ni­tion in such a way as to push those dreary

Creative Knitting - - YARN TREND REPORT -

➊ An­dorra, a new fin­ger­ing-weight yarn from Kel­bourne Woolens, is the cream of the crop in a breed-spe­cific yarn: high­land wool, merino wool and mo­hair. It’s a lofty, soft har­mony that is ut­terly clas­sic and dis­tinctly beau­ti­ful.

➋ Ber­roco’s Bento, an ul­tra-light worsted weight, blends merino and silk for a soft­ness wor­thy of royal blood. Lace shines un­der the smooth twist, but it’s the sub­tle sheen and en­tranc­ing lofti­ness that make us die-hard fans.

➌ Bella Cash from Univer­sal Yarn com­bines ny­lon and merino with just enough cash­mere to keep you com­ing back for more. Del­i­cate yet strong, ev­ery level of knit­ter will de­light in the feel, the stitch def­i­ni­tion and the ar­ray of col­ors.

➍ Su­per­wash merino has never felt as good as it does with Louet North Amer­ica’s Gems in worsted. The tight, worsted-spun twist makes for in­cred­i­ble stitch def­i­ni­tion and struc­ture but doesn’t com­pro­mise its soft­ness. This is stuff sweater dreams are made of.
