We appreciate Jil Eaton’s MinnowMerino for their rich color and soft bulkyness (though on size 8 needles). But then I also fell in love with her warm camel neutral. The perfect yarn for your next kid

Meet Helen and Justin. Justin made Helen a scarf. His own design (knit 2, purl 2, cast on 48 stitches) out of one long and lovely skein of our soft and dreamy Kaffe Fassett Kids Silk Haze. We celebrate the maker and his muse. Stunning.

Some yarns look closer to the sheep than others. Cascade Ecologoical wool (100% Undyed Peruvian Highlands wool) is one of those yarns. Soft, natural, in five earthy colors. Each skein is 475 yards. This is a wool to make a boyfriend sweater, a lap throw for your mother-in-law (two recent JPK&S projects), something sheep-y and wonderful.
