I recently added yarns from Australia’s Great Ocean Road Woolen Mill, a sustainable, boutique operation, to the site. La Bella fingering is an 80/20 blend of Superfine Merino and natural white alpaca that is incredibly soft, with not a trace of prickle factor. You can use it to knit Isabel Kraemer’s topolino, Yamagara’s Nichi Nichi or Noriko Ichikawa’s Azami Shawl. This blend is also available on a DK weight and is the perfect yarn for a cable or lace sweater or shawl.
Summer Fiesta is comprised of 70% Merino and 30% Belgian linen, the only fiber that Isabel and Nick import from outside the country. I have it on two colors — Oatmeal and Ocean Blue — and they would be great on their own (try Yamagara’s Take the Weather top) or with Lanivendole’s Aestiva.
