new marled yarns in the shop

Light and dark Majesty colorway of Synergy yarn 230 yards in 4oz heavy DK weight

I have added these yarns into my webstore here. Before the skeins were one of a kind skeins, so I only sold them in person at a show or in my studio. But now I have 5 new colorways that I can list online. There is still some variability within the skeins, but they are very consistent. And I’m just about to take 5 more colorways to the mill and they will be available in the next few weeks and hopefully at the fall shows.

What can you do with them? First of all they are made with really fine merino. Not superwash, just plain merino. And they are within the DK to Worsted weight. They are next to the skein soft, so you can make a lovely pullover or cardigan. They are great to use in a 2 color brioche pattern. And of course a hat or mittens or fingerless mitts would be perfect. In a stockinette stitch these yarns will look tweedy and wonderful. Here are some of the available colors:

blue green marled merino yarn
Carribean colorway (this one is 370 yards in 4oz sport weight yarn
blue marled merino yarn
Lapis colorway 230 yards in 4 oz heavy DK weight
brown marled merino yarn
Mushroom colorway 230 yards in 4oz in a heavy DK weight
red marled merino yarn
Ruby colorway 230 yards in 4 oz in a heavy DK weight

working the nightshift with synergy yarn

Nightshift is another one of Andrea Mowry’s innovative shawls. It is worked with a XXX stitch that leaves floats of contrasting colors. It is a triangular shawl that has icord edging for a really stable edge. Our Synergy yarn is perfect for this shawl. It is a DK weight merino yarn that has a tweedy handspun look. Within each skein there are subtle color changes. For the shawl you can choose anywhere from 4-8 skeins. The shawl calls for 7 different colors, but everyone’s aesthetic and knitting style is different. I’m happy to help you pick out great colors to work with. Here is a photo of a customer’s shawl that she made with Synergy.
