The fun with bulky yarns continues. This week, we are featuring Cascade Yarn's Ecological Wool.
We have used this for a variety of projects that call for heavy worsted to light Aran weight yarn and love the generous yardage: 478 yards! The natural colors are wonderful neutrals and this yarn felts like a dream. I used it to create Tiny Owl Knits’ Hopsalots bunny slippers that are just as much fun to make as they are to wear. A single skein could also be used to make several pairs of Duffers.
Amelia finished a sample of Forester, a Brooklyn Tweed raglan sleeve turtleneck tunic that calls for two strands of worsted weight Shelter to be used thoughout. A single strand of Eco wool makes a finished sweater that is right on gauge and not too heavy to be comfortable to wear. We even have marled colorways in stock that will create a finished sweater just like the designer imagined. I think that the Eco wool might be a great yarn to use for Setzer in order to create a bulky snuggly cowl that isn’t on the heavy side.
Some project ideas that might inspire you could be the Owls Sweater by Kate Davies. Or a deliciously hearty version of the Purl Bee’s Hudson Bay Inspired Crib Blanket could be made to cover a large Queen sized bed and not break the bank.
If a smaller project is called for, the Bilbo Cardigan by Cirilia Rose is a great way to play with beautiful cables in a quick knit that won’t linger on your needles.
Stop by tomorrow, or give us a call to take advantage of our Deal of the Day and let us help you find the perfect skeins to get you started on your next project.
