I was lucky enough to find a box of beautiful yarn on my doorstep a few weeks ago!
Erika Knight Vintage Wool is 100% and has that lovely soft but slightly crispy wool feel. I love this from the Blue Water Fibers site: Vintage Wool is, ‘easy to work with, it has excellent wear ability & comes in a gorgeous muted palette of colors with fashion highlights.’ Apparently I’ve chosen all of the ‘fashion highlight’ colors! There is nothing muted about the colors I received! They are bright and lively with total saturation. The double loose ply gives your knitting a very homespun feel.
I cast on a few stitches to get a feel for the yarn and it knits up great! I worked with 7s and the yarn knit up well and feels like a very true worsted weight. Erika Knight’s Vintage Wool would be perfect for any outerwear project, and I’d love to work a bunch of these fun colors together in a big colorwork sweater or jacket!
Want to get your hands on a skein of this fun yarn? Leave a comment on this post! I’ll choose one lucky winner one week from today – Monday January 27th – and send her a skein. Good luck!Pin It
