Yarn Release : Cobbled in Bulky and Worsted

Introducing the first of my yarns – Cobbled. It is a handspun yarn available in worsted and bulky weight. From a concoction of wool, alpaca, llama and mohair left in their natural tones, once knitted, this yarn creates a very real, rustic fabric. Striving to make available Californian grown, spun and packaged yarn I sourced this fiber from a small flock farm in Woodland, CA.

I recently knit my latest pattern with this yarn, bulky weight, and cannot believe how soft this knitted fabric is – light and extremely warm. In comparison to some of the commercial yarns out there, you look at this yarn and you can see the flock in the pasture, you touch this yarn and you can feel the fleece, you smell the yarn….. ok, so I washed it pretty good, no fear, you won’t smell like farm animals.

Here is the breakdown of the two:

Yarn : Cobbled Bulky 2ply

Fiber : a blend of wool, alpaca, llama and mohair
approx 4oz / 110 yds / 3.5-4 sts per inch

Yarn : Cobbled Worsted 2ply

Fiber : a blend of wool, alpaca, llama and mohair
approx 4oz / 210 yds / 4-5 sts per inch

My goal is to have it directly available from my site, but in the meantime you can find me and my yarns at etsy.com

I just found my next project…. Veera Välimäki’s Modern Garden Cardigan

Perfect for Cobbled Bulky… can’t wait!
