Pigeonroof Studios: New Yarns! New Colorways!

I’m excited to announce that there are several new yarns and colorways in the shop that I think everyone will be as excited about as well!

First, though, SIREN TWO SOCK IS BACK! For those unfamiliar with Siren Two Sock, it is approximately 380 yards of 80% superwash Merino, 10% Cashmere, and 10% nylon. Pretty much the same as the Luxury Sock except that Luxury Sock has 20% Cashmere. People have been asking about this yarn for a while and I’m so happy to be able to bring it back.

Pigeonroof Studios is also making the foray into the ever popular superwash Merino singles yarns with our Superwash Merino Singles, approximately 440 yards of a singles construction superwash Merino that takes dye amazingly.

We’ve had it before, but not for quite some time: Silky DK. Approximately 230 yards of 50/50 superwash merino and silk, making this yarn have amazing drape and shine. It feels so good!

In the DK weight realm as well, we’re offering another new Made in the U.S.A. yarn– American Squishy DK. To say this yarn is squishy is actually an understatement– I’ve not seen such a lovely plump yarn before! Think cables, cables, cables. Like the other American yarns, the stitch definition is superb. And at 300 yards for $25, it’s also an amazing deal.

Last, but not least, Rustic Silk Worsted and Rustic Silk Lace. Both of these yarns are 100% pure silk singles yarns from India. Rustic Silk Worsted (approximately 250 yards) has a lofty, almost woolen feel– it would make a fabulous substitution yarn for those who cannot work with wool. Rustic Silk Lace (approximately 850 yards) knits up into a soft and drapey fabric with a gorgeous sheen. Perfect for lightweight garments or shawls.

All of these yarns introduce some new colorways that I hope everyone will love! There are also some new colorways in High Twist Sock and American Twist Worsted.
