Wool meets silk in Spud & Chloë Fine, a yummy fingering-weight yarn that is sure to get your fingers itching to crochet!
From the moment you touch this yarn, you'll fall in love with the fine texture and lovely hand. The 20 bright, clear colors make for tempting eye candy for crocheters. And with names like tickled pink, anemone, calypso and lipstick, you'll find yourself looking for fun ways to create multicolored projects for the whole family! Multi-plied and firmly spun, this machine washable yarn is sturdy enough to stand up to the antics of little ones and special enough for a beautiful lacy garment for you. Put-up in 65-gram skeins with 248 yards, we sampled #7800 popcorn crocheted with an F/5/3.75mm hook. Our lacy sample would make a beautiful heirloom blanket for a new arrival or a lacy cardigan for you.
New this year, Stripey Fine takes it up a notch with a palette of beautiful hand-dyed colors like blueberry cheesecake, tootie fruitie, Neapolitan, mint chip and cherry sundae. A gorgeous shawl for a special friend or a cute cardi for Baby would be the perfect way to enjoy this luscious yarn. We sampled #7864 grape freeze with a 7/4.5mm hook in a simple stitch pattern perfect for a cozy cowl. Put up in 50-gram skeins for 191 yards, Stripey Fine and Fine can be used together, offering even more design options for crocheters. Fine and Stripey Fine are available at AnniesYarnShop.com.
