Light and airy, just as you'd expect, this yarn is also something else you might not expect from a laceweight: incredibly dependable. If such a delicate yarn could ever be described as a “workhorse”, Pyxis would be it! It’s 2-ply superwash merino soaks up rich colour and -- even better -- it loves to be held double, creating a slightly thicker yarn that allows the colours to do absolutely mesmerising things!
Why is Celeste such an amazing yarn? Because it's fabulously light and so soft, incredibly generous (490 yards per skein!), and the way it takes colour is just stunning! It may sound odd but Stephanie suggests you try it larger needles (maybe US7 / 4.5mm) and watch it create a wonderful, airy fabric that makes gorgeous shawls and delightful 3-season cardigans and wraps that you'll reach for again and again!
Maia simply is breathtaking! With 80% bamboo, its sheen is divine and its drape is just incredible -- it hangs like a waterfall, and swings and sways as you move. And the way Maia takes colour gives it an amazing "iced" appearance that is nothing short of head-turning!"OMG the drape!" -- Amy Maceyko, designer of the Fascia ShawlStephanie suggests you try it on larger needles (maybe US7 / 4.5mm) for a lighter-than-air fabric that creates utterly stunning shawls, pullovers, and cardigans.
Cashmere is soft -- you already know that -- but twice the cashmere is downright decadent, and Aurora makes you swoon as soon as you touch it! A slightly plumper fingering, Aurora is rich and luxurous, warm and cosy, with a slight halo and a naturally muted approach to colour that's perfect for colder weather projects you'll snuggle into all season long.
Oriana is a very special yarn that combines incredible drape for swingy shawls and cardigans, with a sock yarn work ethic that never gives in! It hangs like cotton but has the hand-feel and memory of wool, and its 8-ply construction gives it surprising durability.I adore what Oriana does when you pair it with tiny, twisty stitches. The stitch definition is magnificent. And I love it for socks. It wears like iron. -- Hunter Hammersen, designer and author of Silk Road Socks, Curls, and The Knitter’s Curiosity Cabinet.Work it on smaller needles for socks, and try it on larger needles or hooks for wonderfully drapey shawls, wraps, pullovers, and cardigans.
What makes Lyra such a fabulous yarn? Look closely and you can see its cabled 8-ply construction, which physically pushes each ply outward to create a wonderfully round, bouncy yarn that gives incredible stitch definition for cables and stitchwork that really pop. Spun in fine merino, it takes colour with incredible saturation -- this is a yarn you don't want to miss!
What what do we mean by "sproingy"? Vega's cabled 8-ply construction physically pushes the yarn outward to create an incredible roundness so the yarn seems to almost bounce as you squeeze it. And that means Vega gives incredible stitch definition to cables and stitchwork so they really pop. Spun in fine merino, it takes colour with a beautiful saturation -- it's no wonder it's one of our best selling yarns!
Capella is a yarn you just keep reaching for to squish... and squish... and squish. It's single-ply construction and soft-as-clouds merino create a poofiness that's just so touchable. Perfect for bulkier, cool-weather projects, Capella knits or crochets up incredibly fast into the smooshiest of hats, cowls, mitts, and scarves.
Elara's distinctive texture creates snuggly cold-weather projects that are quick to make and super smooshy. With 100% fine merino for softness, there's a gentleness to the way it takes colour that is reflected in every delightfully squishy finished object.
