Jamieson & Smith, Blue Sky, & More

We have lots up on the website for you today, including a new line.

Jamieson & Smith 2 ply JumperOne thing you all have been asking for is more “sticky” wool. Not sticky as in little toddler fingers and a lollipop, but sticky as in not merino wool. Sticky wool is great for colorwork, as the fibers hold your stitches together better, and the textured stitches in your project just pop. It’s not soft like merino, but it softens up more after washing. And it wears forever!

Try this for colorwork socks, cowls, hats and sweaters. For striping sequences in scarves, hats and mitts. For knitting up classics that will be wearable for years and years to come. It’s such a great workhorse yarn.

This new line comes in 92 colors, and each skein is 125 yards in a fingering weight, woolen spun (light and airy), 100% Shetland wool. We get this wool shipped in from Lerwisk, Shetland, UK. 

Pick your favorite palette, your team colors, your “happy” colors, or colors outside of your comfort zone and try it out!

Here are some patterns to try: Vivid, Snawheid, Hansel (Half), Merrie Dancers Toorie, Stevenson Sweater, and Lang Ayre.
