TWO posts in one day.... well, there's lots to say!
SSYC has received our first shipment of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport, just in time for fall knitting! This 100% merino wool sock yarn is sport weight, so slightly thicker than normal sock yarns. Perfect for a quick knit and warm socks. We will soon have all of the Nearly Solid colors in stock. But you can find many of them now. If you want to get started, any pattern that calls for sport or dk weight will do. Here's one that I like.
The Nearly Solid colors in Sport are slightly different in color than the Shepherd Sock. The color is more saturated, b/c of the 100% wool fiber content. So you may notice a difference in how vivid the colors are. For example, The Manzanita color in the Shepherd Sock yarn is shown at left, and the Manzanita in the Shepherd Sport yarn is shown at right.
I've already started a project on this yarn.... I had to test it, right?!? I'll share that in a day or two when I have a bit more done.
