If you’ve been tempted by Andrea Mowry’s So Faded sweater, you may have found the perfect yarn. Spirit Trail now has a limited number of kits available for So Faded, as well as the Find Your Fade and Free Your Fade shawls. The above photo shows the “Evening Shades” kit, dyed on Sunna, a 3-ply fingering-weight blend of Superwash Merino, Cashmere and silk. Kits are also available on Eos, a 2-ply yarn with 100% organic wool.

Give a big warm, wooly welcome to dyer Shanna of Lambstrings Yarn, who creates her stunning variegated colorways out on Long Island, N.Y. Her shop is stocked with a variety of bases, including a new Merino/yak/nylon blend called Tibetan Sock.

This yarn is too weird to knit, too rare to dye. Inspired by Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, colorways in this series by My Mama Knits include Bat Country, Lizard Lounge, Desert Race, Circus Casino, Grapefruits, Surrealistic Bathtub and Tarmac Whale.

Inner Yarn Zen has opened preorders for Round 1, Season 3 of an Outlander Unclub. An unclub is essentially a kit with a colorway that is exclusive until 2018 and other handmade goodies. This round includes a skein of yarn inspired by the Battle of Culloden and the hero Jamie Frasier, along with a project bag that will carry you through the voyage on your own tall ship.
