Naturale Knitting

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010

Fantasy Naturale is one of Plymouth’s staples and has been in our family of yarns for years.

This 100% mercerized classic yarn has a lovely, crisp sheen. With a cheerful color range, our aran weight holds up exceptionally well to daily wear.

I particularly enjoy the Multis- the color blends are very unique and rarely seen duplicated. Many of these color are fresh and slightly exotic! I find them ideal for baby gifts for the expectant mom.

You can view our pattern ideas and see what we’ve been inspired to design with this versatile cotton.

Elizabeth knit this classic double breasted jacket using our pattern.
