Lark is a smooth, round, wool yarn, designed to showcase all manner of stitch patterns. Its firm 4-ply structure yields etched twisted stitches, fluid cables, and chiseled allover small textures. Lark is great, too, when you want a good yarn for well-defined color patterns.
Squishy, lofty, plump, little Owl is made from a blend of American wool and alpaca. It's spun and dyed in New England and knits up between 4½ to 5 stitches per inch, the perfect weight for just about everything.
Owl Tweet is a lot like our pretty Owl. It's soft, lofty, and light and just like the other bird, it knits up between 4½ to 5 stitches per inch. The difference? Tweet has little nubs of soft wool that pop here and there from the background. We love its tweedy, rustic texture in everything from garter stitch to cables.
2020 Limited Edition Shade: Trillium
In the same fiber family as our laceweight Piper, Crane was developed with the idea of creating a luxe, single ply of superfine merino/superkid mohair blend in a versatile worsted weight. Paired with an arresting palette to suit its softness of character and silkiness of the resulting fabric’s hand, Crane is irresistibly soft, warm, and seems to glow from within.
Kestrel is a new take on a simple linen yarn. We took the same Belgium-grown organic linen that we use in our little Sparrow and spun it this time in a ribbon structure. Kestrel knits up quickly at 3½ to 4 stitches to the inch. Its flat surface adds a slight texture to simple knit and purl stitches. But we think the best thing about it is its incredible drape. Like all things linen, woven or knitted, Kestrel only gets better as you wash and wear it.
Big sister to Willet, our worsted weight Whimbrel is sourced from the same high-quality, responsibly grown Cleaner Cotton™. (Visit our blog to get the full scoop on this amazing fiber!) The fiber's long staple length yields a deliciously soft yarn with a hint of pretty sheen. At a gauge of 4.5 stitches per inch, this versatile 3-ply cotton yarn is destined to become a true workhorse, suitable for garments, shawls, and accessories for all seasons.
A note about our dyed cotton: Some colors may show dye runoff during blocking or washing, especially with highly saturated colors; this is normal. Machine wash cold with like colors only. For best results, hand wash recommended, lay flat to dry.
