Spring comes to Spencer Hill with two new bases, “Ruth” and “Meg.” “Ruth” is a Superwash Merino fingering-weight single that takes dye like WHOA. I think it’s destined to be a favorite. Currently available in a limited color range, I can’t wait to dye up more and see where it goes. Put-up is approximately 400 yds/100g. “Meg” is a 100% non-Superwash organic wool, in a sporty/DK-ish weight, and put up at about 166 yds/50g. I give that kind of nebulous weight description because I was able to knit it up with a wide variety of needle sizes. It’s very versatile. The smaller skeins are nice for colorwork yokes and small colorful projects.
I didn’t mention our last new product in the title…FRANKENBLANKS! Naturally-dyed sock blanks of 75/25 superwash Merino/nylon blend, with approximately 436 yds/100g, FrankenBlanks add the element of surprise to your sock, shawl, or scarf knitting as you ravel them while you knit (or wind them into a ball before you do-your choice).
Thanks to everyone who came out to see Spencer Hill in the last few months at For The Love of Fiber! in Bellefonte, PA; Steel City Fiber Festival in Allentown, PA, and RaggZ Fiber Affair and Wool Market in Delmont, PA. Next up will be a booth at GlassFest in Corning, NY (Memorial Day weekend…runners, there’s an 8K, too!), and the Central New York Fiber Festival in Bouckville, NY the weekend of June 10-11. Hope to see you there!
