We are kicking off our month of Anzula deals with 30% off Anzula’s Haiku this Wednesday April 3rd. This 4ply fingering weight yarn is made with 70% Merino, 20% Bamboo, and 10% Polymide for strength. The skeins have a generous 450 yards, more than enough for a pair of very special socks.
But as you’ll see among the projects in Ravelry, knitters have used this yarn for more than just socks. The bamboo in the yarn makes it a bit less dense and warm than Dreamy, the other fingering option from Anzula. It makes a fabric with beautiful drape. Many Ravelers have used it for Color Affection, a gorgeous wrap that our neighbor Robin is working on right now that can really highlight all the beautiful colors that we love Anzula for.
Late last summer I used Haiku held double to make Quince & Co.’s Miriam Cardi. This A-line swingy cardigan is constructed from the bottom up with raglan shoulders and is a great first sweater for those of you thinking of diving in to larger projects this spring. The two strands of Haiku that I used together created a gauge very close to the sport weight the pattern calls for; but you could try using Anzula’s sport weight Cricket for a perfect match. (Cricket will be featured and discounted later this month, so keep your eyes peeled.)
We hope that you can stop in to the shop this week to see the beautiful spring colors that we have for you to work with and to take advantage of this terrific deal.
