Galway, but as a Roving!

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

Our Galway Worsted weight yarn has been in the Plymouth family for a long time. I remember being a teenager, working at my mom’s yarn shop, and selling galway during the felted bag craze. Fun times! It was the perfect yarn for most projects- a durable, 4-ply (feltable) worsted weight with many colors and excellent yardage (210 yards for 100 Grams, to be exact.) It was well loved for fairisle projects, cabling, and held up well to pilling and wear. Oh! And who remembers Galway in a hank?

We’ve expanded the Galway yarn in more than one direction recently. I’ll talk about only one today…..but stay tuned for a smaller (hint hint) Galway version in my next post.

Galway ROVING! Galway Roving is new to Plymouth- it is a singly ply bulky weight yarn that knits up at 2.5 sts= 1″ on a size 15 (10mm) needle.
We love it for chunky weight accessories and outdoorsy kind of knits.

Please enjoy the free pattern for this drop stitch cable cowl. It requires only 3 balls and an evening or two to make. The cowl is worked flat and then stitches are dropped to make a looser, less dense fabric. The ends are then sewn together to make a cowl-loop. Super fun and stylish! Download the free pattern
