One of our favorite yarns around here is Wollmeise. This yarn is dyed up by Claudia and her crew, in Germany. It doesn’t last too long when we get it in, even though we put up so many many skeins at a time.
There are so many colors up to choose from right now. This color – Xaverl – sold out very quickly the last time we had it. This was dyed up after Claudia’s cute cat by the same name! Here’s a photo I took of him when I was visiting her last fall. He was only a few months old and had SO much energy! (You can tell. He was reaching up to check out my camera.) He is white and gray, with a bright pink nose. Claudia has a beautiful back yard, and it seemed to be one of Xaverl’s very favorite places.
Here are so more pretty colorways in this batch, which contains lots of multicolors as well as lots of solids.
Tant Gron, Tant Brun:
And many more. 60 colors in all, in this Wollmeise Update.
Claudia will be back here in September for our Fall Fling again, for those of you attending it. (Here’s my favorite picture of her and her husband Andreas last September, in Germany. Their town was having a fun festival to celebrate the harvest, and we went despite the rain!) Claudia and I will also be hanging out at Stephanie’s Wednesday evening (9/10) talk for local knitters. You can still get tickets, if you’re going to be in the area that night. You could meet Stephanie and Claudia in one evening! 🙂
We get Wollmeise in about every 6 weeks, so we’ll have more again later this summer. We’ll let you know when the next batch arrives.
