What to stash this week: summer yarns

Skeins and cakes of pink, white, red and orange yarn and knitted fabric on needles spread on a table.

Giulia and Stefania of Lanivendole have launched Aestiva, their new wool and linen yarn. This light fingering-weight yarn is comprised of 70% Abruzzese wool and 30% French linen which, like all their bases, is spun in a mill in Piedmont. It comes in 13 gorgeous hand-dyed hues and the natural color, and with a generous 328 yards per 50g skein.

Crystal’s latest design is the Marmalade Shawl, a basic triangular-shaped shawl with a center cable that adds a little flare. It’s knit with fingering-weight yarn held double along with mohair/silk and is perfect for using up leftovers.
