The Newest Yarns

The yarn pictured above is from Queensland Collection and is called Rustic Tweed.  It contains 63% wool, 27% alpaca, 7% acrylic and 3% viscose so it is very soft and the colors are wonderful.  It has 318 yards per hank and knits at 4.5 stitches per inch on an 8 needle.

This very colorful basket full of goodness is called Hachito by Mirasol.  It is sock weight, superwash and knits at 7.5 stitches per inch on a 2-3 needle.  It has 192 yards per skein so would take 2 for socks, but don't limit yourself to that.  It contains 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon and the colors are glorious.
