Yarn Spotlight: HiKoo Kenzie
Tweedy yarns are awesome! They don’t have enough of another color to be considered a variegated, but there is enough color variation that you can’t consider the color a solid either. As an added plus, the color variation often adds some texture, so not only do you have a yarn with random strands of a different color, you have a textured yarn as well. What isn’t awesome about that!
One such yarn is HiKoo Kenzie. Weighing in at 160 yds per 50g skein, Kenzie is a worsted weight ball of tweedy goodness. And the fiber blend just adds to its appeal—50% New Zealand merino, 25% nylon, 10% angora, 5% silk noils. This mixture of fibers will provide the warmth of wool, plus the softness of angora and silk and the durability of nylon. Available in 30 colors, Kenzie is sure to hit the color mark for any project.
What kind of project should you create with such a beautiful yarn? Well, if you’re a crocheter, we recommend the Edelweiss Cowl found in Interweave Crochet Winter 2017. This lovely cowl is worked in a two-color Tunisian crochet pattern and accented with HiKoo CoBaSi. If you’d rather knit with this ball of joy, we recommend the Winnipeg Pullover. This pattern can be located in the Interweave Knits Winter 2014 issue.
Whether you work up one of our suggested projects or branch out on your own, we’re sure that HiKoo Kenzie will make both your hands, and the recipient of your project, very happy. Show us what you create using #yarnspotlight.
