This month's selection is Rustic Aran by Ella Rae. It's a worsted weight wool and silk blend that's smooth to the touch but retains enough texture visually to be quite interesting. If you're going to blend fibers, I find wool and silk to be one of my favorite combos! It's warm, lightweight, temperature regulating, and somewhat drape-y with a unique hand.
Personally, I'm thinking a sweater or wrap. But this yarn would make great hats, accessories, mitts, or just about anything! I can't wait to see what you make with it. I know some think wool is itchy, but the silk in this one is just enough to “smooth” it out and add some squish.
If you can't stop by the shop, this yarn is available on our website too. Each hank is 100g/ 208 yards. We’ve got 12 colors to choose from right now.
