I hope you had a great weekend and are almost through your Monday. Our favorite part of Mondays? The Loopy Yarn Update. It makes every Monday great around here. Beautiful new skeins of yarn flood the shelves and brighten everything up again for the week!
Today, it’s all about Wollmeise, which is dyed up by Claudia and her team in Germany. One thing we love about the Wollmeise skeins (besides the incredible colors) is that fact that all of the skeins come with such generous yardage. Watch the yardage numbers when purchasing for multiple-skein projects, as you’ll need fewer skeins than you would when using many other brands.
Just up, we have for you:
Wollmeise Lace – This heavy lace weight base is 100% Superwash Merino with 300 grams and 1722 yards in the skein. (That’s almost a mile of yarn. Be still my heart.)
