Ibis is a big sister to our laceweight Piper. A 2-ply bulky weight comprised of the same Texas-sourced 50% super kid mohair, 50% superfine merino content, Ibis boasts the same gorgeous halo, sheen, and silky softness, in a luscious heavier weight that's quick to knit and super warm. Perfect for accessories and sweaters that are meant to keep the cold at bay. For ample warmth and a luxurious fabric that needs to be worn to be believed, we recommend a gauge of 2.5–2.75 stitches per inch on size US 11 (8 mm) to US 13 (9 mm).
Puffin is a plump, chunky, single-ply yarn spun from sturdy American wool fleece. Its felted texture knits up into garments with a soft halo and a broken-in feel. Puffin is great for quick accessories or cozy, wear-all-the-time sweaters.
This special, very limited-edition Puffin was dyed for us by A Verb For Keeping Warm, using natural dyes Cutch, Logwood, Madder, Quebracho Red, and Weld. Each of these shades is available in three "intensities": light, medium, and dark.
Due to the nature of hand-dyeing both color and intensity of variegation will vary from skein to skein and may differ slightly from the photographed examples. We'll do our best for a close match of all skeins in your order! We recommend alternating skeins throughout your project.
