Summer Palette Yarn Grab

  • Coral, variegated and gold yarn.

It’s that time again. WayfaringYarns quarterly Yarn Grab is up on the Sweater Sisters site! I’m taking pre-orders for the stunning summer palette colors through Saturday, June 15th only with FREE SHIPPING in the U.S.

Each of the nine colors are available on my four most popular fingering weight bases:
Arcadia Fingering – 100% Extra Fine Merino – 4 ply
Monaco – 100% Extra Fine Merino – single ply
Wayfarer – 80% Extra Fine Merino/10% Cashmere/10% nylon
Shangri-La – 75% ULTRA Fine Merino/25% Mulberry Silk

NEW Apex glazed
NEW Apex marbled
Named after Apex, North Carolina, these colors evoke the place of my childhood and represent the best parts of a child’s southern summer: watermelons, homemade peach ice cream, blue skies, huge oaks and pine trees, a creek in the woods with mossy banks, and bright, happy days with sisters and friends.

Guanajuato glazed is inspired by the gorgeous, colonial silver mine town in central Mexico, the birthplace of the artist, Diego Rivera.

NEW Denver glazed
NEW Denver marbled
Who doesn’t love the cool tones always present in the Mile High City? These colors are the blue-greens of Denver’s towering evergreens and mountain lakes.

Alta glazed is the namesake of my home, Alta, Wyoming, a tiny Rocky Mountain town with the Grand Tetons against the backdrop of the blue sky.

NEW Disney World glazed
NEW Disney World marbled
This color is the result of the Favorite Place Giveaway held last fall in the WayfaringYarns Design Facebook group. The winning photo inspiration for this yarn was Cinderella’s castle at night surrounded by fireworks.
Vegas, Baby! glazed is an iconic fluorescent pink inspired by the famous Las Vegas sign by the Flamingo Hotel.

All orders will be shipped within two weeks.

Nantahala Shawl Kit Release

  • A woman holds a green crescent shaped shawl in front of a body of water.

Nantahala is a Cherokee word meaning “land of the noon day sun.” Inspired by a summer day in the beautiful hardwood forests of the east coast areas of North America, this top-down, crescent-shaped shawl has a pleasing mix of simple lace and squishy garter stitch sections and ends with a delicate picot bind-off.

I’m offering this shawl kit in four gorgeous spring color choices on WayfaringYarns’ Monaco base.
Savannah (shown on sample)
Tulum
Pfeiffer Beach
Shoujiji Sakura

Monaco is a single-ply fingering weight yarn of 100% Extra Fine Merino. It’s incredibly soft! The kit includes two 100g skeins of the Monaco color of your choice plus a free Ravelry download code for the Nantahala Shawl.
