While we are ready to turn our minds and needles to autumn, the weather hasn't exactly caught up with us. This is the perfect time to look for a sport or dk weight project that won't be too heavy to knit, but will be perfect to wear once the transitional months come along. As if reading our minds, Berroco comes along with Quechua, a luscious, light yarn for fall.
Merino wool, alpaca, and yak fibers join together in this sport-weight yarn to create incredible stitch definition and cozy warmth in everything from sweaters to lacy stoles. We are smitten with Imbiana, a long cowl with an eye-catching lace pattern.
Abayomi means "bringer of happiness," which is a fair assessment of this calf-length duster. The drape, the lace, the silky hand, and the crisp stitch definition are bringing us all the happiness as we dream of walks at dusk in our new cardigan.
(fair warning: we currently have enough stock in #1306 for a single cardigan, but it would look equally fabulous in any of the other colors of Quechua! More stock of this popular yarn will be available at the end of August, contact us to pre-order.)
The beauty of feather and fan happens when the simple, easy to memorize repeat grows into a stunning stole such as Abebi. This stole is subtly elegant, while keeping the main focus on the yarn itself. The rich autumnal hues of Quechua are exactly what we want to be wrapped up in come September... time to cast on!
Arbor is another ideal yarn for transitional seasons; a dk weight 100% wool with incredible stitch definition, as shown here in three new designs from the Wool People 11 collection.
