NEW YARN: Lichen and Lace
With so much home-grown fibre arts talent in Canada, we are thrilled to be able to bring on another amazing indie dyer, this time from the other coast! Megan Ingman of Lichen and Lace has been in the fibre arts world for the better part of a decade, having owned Lettuce Knits in Toronto before moving to Sackville, NB in 2012 and starting on her dyeing adventure. Read her full story here.
With a tagline of “hand dyed yarns inspired by the land and sea” Megan creates depth and playful tone to her colours. Lichen and Lace truly combines great bases with a masterful blend of colour. We brought on two bases that are sure to please…
Matte Sock: This low sheen, powdery soft yarn is 400 yards in 100 grams. It is spun with a 4 ply blend of 75% Superwash Merino and 25% Nylon – but it feels like there is cashmere in it – it is that soft and smooth. Try it for shawls, baby knits, fingerless mitts, and naturally, socks.
Superwash Merino Worsted: This yarn is a true worsted weight with 200 yards in 115 grams. It is well balanced with a 4 ply construction. 100% Superwash Merino. A very easy knitting yarn with crisp stitch definition. Perfect for sweaters, mittens, hats, and so much more.
