Amazing Yarn Eye Candy from My Stash for Your Enjoyment
I am a crocheter. And that means I use yarn. And I guess if I’m going to be honest I’m a little bit of a yarn addict, a little bit of a yarn hoarder. But I know I’m not the only one. In fact, I bet there are a lot of other yarn lovers out there who, like me, love looking at beautiful yarn. It’s not quite the same if you can’t touch it but nevertheless I thought I’d share some eye candy photos of my yarn stash for the other yarn lovers out there. Enjoy!
Tenacious is one of the newest yarns that I have added to my yarn stash. I purchased it from the Sincere Sheep booth at Bizarre Bazaar which is a great indie craft fair here. I haven't used it yet but I love adoring it from not-too-afar. This is four ounces of yarn which comes out to more than four hundred yards of a two-ply sock weight yarn. It's 100% superwash merino which means it's a great soft workable yarn.
About Aurora Melange
I have two different colors of this Aurora Melange yarn but I think this one is my favorite so that's why I decided to show it off here. This is a really soft yarn with great color definition. It is 100% extrafine merino wool. Can you tell that I like the merinos? This one is a worsted weight yarn and there is about one hundred yards in the ball.
This lovely yarn is one that I chose primarily for its great color. You may begin to notice a pattern of blue yarns here. I love anything in the blue and grey families although my very favorite color combination is teal with a dark grey. This colorway is actually called Salty Dog. Yarns have such funny names. It's Jitterbug yarn by Colinette. It's a four ply fingering weight yarn that is (not surprisingly here) a 100% merino yarn. It's a little over 300 yards.
About Lorna's Laces
Lorna's Laces is a lovely brand of yarn. This particular pair is Shepherd Sport Multi yarn from Lorna's Laces. It's soft and lovely and I adore the purple/ grey color combination that is worked together here. This is a 100% wool yarn that comes with about 200 yards to a skein. I purchased this one from a lovely store in Monterrey, California, called The Twisted Stitch when I visited there last spring for my birthday.
Loop-d-loop by Teva Durham is a really unique type of yarn. It's almost like a lace ribbon. It's not as easy to work with as a simpler type of yarn, like a merino wool yarn, but that's what makes it fun. It's textured and unique and I typically work it with a Lover's Knot crochet stitch to take advantage of the full texture and showcase the yarn. It's a super bulky weight yarn that is 70% wool and 30% nylon and comes with about 80 yards to a ball. If you're interested then you can see my full yarn review here.
About Alpaca Suri Ribbon
I purchased this one at Elmwood Yarn Shop in Buffalo, New York when they were having a lovely sale on it. It is a bulky weight yarn that only comes about 27 yards to a skein. It is 100% alpaca. It's a different type of yarn to work with but it's a lot of fun and I love that color!
