Answer Some Questions – Maybe Win a Prize…

Filed under: News,Store Updates — by SpinningYarnsOnline @ 5:28 am

In preparation for the fall/winter knitting season I’ve been doing some thinking.  When I decided to sell my hand painted yarn I had to start somewhere so I only offered fingering and sport weight yarn. In addition,  I knit all my socks using superwash merino so I decided to start by working with this wonderfully soft, washable yarn.  The response has been great so I am wondering if you would like other wool blends and possibly worsted and bulky weight yarn.  Personally, I love the feel and the drape of a merino/tencel blend.  I don’t necessarily love socks knit out of it because (for me) they tend to be more “slouchy” than I like.  I love to knit scarves and shawls and the merino/tencel is absolutely perfect for these.  I’m also pondering the idea of a merino/silk blend. 

So here’s my question(s) — Would you all like to see some yarns that are a merino blend (merino/tencel and merino/silk)?  And… how about some worsted and bulky weight yarn in pure merino.  I love bulky yarn.  I always appreciate a quick big needle knit.  So how about you?  Leave a comment regarding the merino blends and whether you would like hand painted worsted and bulky yarn.  All those who leave a comment will be in the running for a special prize that will be picked (by the random generator) on Monday, August 18th. 

Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you.

  1. I would love some wool/tencel for projects. I don’t do much bulky knitting.
