Arial
 

Arial

Arial is a light fingering yarn with a lovely, soft hand. The two fine plies are strong enough to make wonderfully light socks at a very tight gauge, which is great for a pair of warm-weather socks. The generous yardage in the striping skein allows for socks with lots of intricate texture or socks for larger feet. Crochet socks also work very nicely with this yarn. If socks aren't your thing, Arial is also a great option for lace, particularly scarves and shawls. The two plies lend themselves nicely to open, airy fabric, and the Evolution skeins especially will create stunning lace accessories.

The Arial base is available as an Evolution, Self-Striping and as Semi-Solid shades designed to coordinate with each colorway.

Catnip
 

Catnip

This lovely blend of silk and merino almost glows, and it is deliciously soft. The fabric created has a wonderful drape, making it the perfect yarn for that special shawl or scarf. We recommend patterns with both knit and purl stitches to keep the single ply from pilling. The Aran weight means that your projects will work up quickly, and even very open lace patterns will be warm and luxurious. It would make a decadent, indulgent blanket to snuggle under, but you would probably never want to get up again. Catnip is a truly special yarn.
