Yarn Spotlight on Longwools, from Knitting Daily TV Episode 1002
On this episode's Yarn Spotlight, Eunny and yarn expert Clara Parkes join up in the knitting lab for a look at longwools, going beyond merino wools for knitting. Featured here is Solitude Wool Yarn's Romney 2-ply.
Romeny is a lustrous longwool and spinning it with a semi-worsted technique allows the shine and silkiness of the yarn to stand out. This strong yarn will show off stitch definition but also allow for great drape in your knitwear. For more information on this yarn, please visit Solitude Wool's website. Sponsored by Solitude Wool.
Also seen here in the mustard color is Fancy Tiger's Heirloom yarn.
