We are excited to add two new sport weight yarns to our store, both made of 100 percent Romney wool. They are both subtle blends of dyed wools and we are calling their colors Monet Winter Sunset and Monet Reflection.
Monet Winter Sunset is a blend of reds with hints of leaf green and gold subtley intertwined in the Romney wool sheen. Monet Reflection appears purple or lilac at first to the eye, but actually contains no purple fibers. It is a blend of reds and blues creating a tweeding effect that changes colors in different light, almost like a color-change sapphire. You can see these blends in the photos.
I have made some swatches of each. Sunset was knit with #3 (U.S.) knitting needles. Reflection was crocheted with an “F” crochet hook.
Both compliment each other well. Inspired by a sweater I have always liked in Rowan Magazine Number 50, I started knitting the two together in the rose pattern.
This is is as far as I have gotten, and the colors compliment each other nicely.
Each sport weight skein weighs just over 3.2 oz and is 200 yards long. They can be purchased for $15.00 each in Meduseld’s store.
