NEW(ish) YARN: Americo Abrazos
If you visited us during this Spring’s Woolith Fair Yarn Crawl you were probably introduced to this gem. We quietly brought in the Abrazos line from Toronto’s AmericoOriginal Yarns for our new spring collection and it has been on fire ever since.
A single skein of this bamboo pima cotton laceweight contains enough yarn in it to knit up an entire 2ft by 4ft shawl, and as with all Americo yarns comes with a choice of their own patterns free with purchase. With only one and a half skeins you can kit an entire summer pullover!
Americo Yarns’s Abrazos comes in an array of bright and classic colours, and we just restocked on all of them!
Composition: 44.7 % Pima Cotton, 55.3 % Bamboo
Gauge: 42 stitches & 53 rows = 4 inches (10 cm)
Needle: 2 mm (US 0)
Length: 100 g / 1028 yards (940 m)
This Canadian brand does its own sourcing by visiting farms and mills of Peru to create some of the most interesting yarns currently available on the market. The texture lends itself to simple patterns, letting the yarn do the heavy lifting!
The Karner Wrap is perfect summer knit: light-weight, compact single skein project that looks amazing even with a simple stitch that is easy for car, plane or beach knitting!
Thank you to one of lovely regulars, Reagan B for modeling this wrap for us; and for our teacher Zoe for her 1028 yards of stitches on this sample!
