Baby Cammello Merino Hat

Baby Cammello Merino Hat

 

Our sales rep Warren’s wife, Marina, loves new Cammello-Merino so much, that she just had to make something with it! Lucky for us, they have two beautiful sons who don’t mind modeling some knitwear! This is Marina’s original design and we adore it! It only takes one ball so you can make yours this weekend!

0599_Cammello Merino ball

Cammello-Merino comes in 10 lovely colors and it’s moderately stretchy, so it works well in colorwork and cabling.  We can’t help you find a model as adorable as Peter but you can try!

The Ultimate Guide to Wearing Knits Between Seasons

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

PlymouthKnits

Spring has sprung…..well sort of.  It was chilly this morning but in just a couple of hours, I’ll be switching on the fans and opening the windows here in my office.  This is my favorite time of year weather-wise but it’s so hard to figure out what to wear. It tough to look fabulous when you are shivering or worse, overheated and sweaty!  Soon enough, we’ll be on the beach in Adriafil’s Kimera Sarong  but until then, here are some tips to get you through the transition.

It’s all about the fiber! Plymouth Yarn offers the best fiber blends for spring weather!

    • Linaza is beautiful blend of Alpaca, Linen and Tencel.  You’ll get just a hint of warmth and plenty of softness with the Alpaca.  When tencel is blended with wool, it brings softness and drape; blended with cotton or linen, it promotes the bounce and sheen in the fiber.

      • Kid Gloss is perfect for any season but especially in between seasons because of it’s mohair and silk blend. Mohair doesn’t conduct heat and provides good insulation. It readily absorbs and releases moisture, moving perspiration away from the skin for evaporation so it’s ideal in hot and cold weather. Silk is naturally absorbent. This allows it to regulate temperature well, no matter what the season.

        Pattern 2795

        Pattern 2795

        • Cotton is the king of transition. It’s fabric that allows the skin to breathe. Cotton can easily absorb body moisture and help keep you dry. It is also able to draw heat away from your skin, keeping you cool and comfortable in hot weather. Check out some of the other benefits of cotton here.  Plymouth Yarn offers a variety of organic, mercerized, Egyptian and cotton blends.  Anne, Cleo, and Kimera just to name a few. One of our favorite, all season, scarves is the ZickZack by Christy Kamm made with Kimera.  Throw it in your bag in case you get chilly.  It’s so versatile.

You have your fibers….now, how are you wearing them? We love layers this time of year. The key to layering is not to overdo it. No more than 3 layers. You don’t want to look like you are trying to avoid paying the carry-on luggage fee on a flight by wearing everything at once! Try a cotton cami with a light sweater like this one in Linaza.

Pattern 3030

Pattern 3030

Pastel hues are just what you need for spring. Think of a backyard garden this time of year, lavender & yellow crocus, pink buds on the cherry tree and fresh green grass should be your inspiration. aagarden
If you aren’t quite ready to put away favorite warm sweaters just yet, there’s a solution for that. Wear your favorite cable knit sweater with crop pants, boyfriend sweater with a skirt or pair your favorite sweater with shorts!

Leap Year Traditions-The Yarn Edition

Monday, February 29th, 2016

crex30

Traditionally, February 29th is the day that a woman can ask a man to marry her.  Sure, times have changed but this tradition isn’t so bad.  In some European countries, such as Denmark, tradition says any man who refuses a woman’s proposal on February 29 has to buy her 12 pairs of gloves.  In Finland, it changes to fabric for a skirt. If it landed me some beautiful fingerless mitts, I might not mind having those instead of a husband some days! Here are some fun and free patterns to celebrate these traditions.  Enjoy!
