Breakfast Blend shelves are stocked and full of color options, just like farmers market stands at morning’s open! And…if that wasn’t enough…we have NEW colors too!
We released this yarn in January, as our 1st Bare Naked Wools (see original post here), and some of the colors sold out super fast. It took us awhile to restock because we had to source a new mill that could keep up with the demand all of you have for natural fibers. Alas, we found a marriage! We have collaborated with Sweitzers Fiber Mill and they have created a beautiful yarn for us.
Without further ado, I introduce the colors of our alpaca/merino blend available in DK.
and we have Fingering in Bakery Rye, Burnt Toast, Cocoa, Cream n Sugar, Espresso, Morning Smoke and Oatmeal here.
With all of these options, I think a colorwork accessory is in my future. How about you? I’m thinking a striped version of Sculling in Fingering,
since the stitch pattern has visible breaks for color. Or to have a more dramatic cozy look I could knit it in DK.
Or a two-color version of Tabata?
You could do the cuffs and earwarmer in one color of DK and the body of the mitts in another. This could be done to lots of Anne’s hat patterns too.
would also be cuddly and versatile accessories for the Fall!
This time of year, especially with the morning today being rainy and dreary, it really makes me dream of a sweater.
Bloch Ness in DK
or Sprössling in Fingering.
Isn’t the closeup fabric and stitch definition gorgeous? Anne has lots more sweater patterns here, and we have sweater quantities of all the colors in both weights ready to ship.
I have been in love with Breakfast Blend from the moment Anne handed me the first skein at the mill. My first knit with it was Squeeze Me infinity cowl and people that see me frequently know this is my go-to handknit. It goes with everything!
And thanks to my cousin Mary I finally have a picture of it. After modeling, she didn’t want to give it back. Haha
