This is a webpage of yarns offered at a significant discount. There are only a few left --- what we call "orphan skeins" --- and we would like to find them good homes.
Poems Silk is a worsted weight yarn composed of 75% wool and 25% silk, with 109 yards in each 50g skein.
The folks at Universal Yarn write: "The beautiful tonal shifts of our classic Poems wool roving yarn are accented by the added sheen of silk. A blend of 75% wool with 25% silk gives an extra snap to the color of everything you make with Poems Silk."
We have quite a few lovely colorways you can choose from. Each is dyed with long color runs, so as to create a most lovely knitted or crocheted fabric.
Some suggestions for patterns that can easily be adapted for this yarn -- fun projects that will look awesome:
Sunburst DK Blanket
Sunny Days Tunisian Entrelac
Ten Stitch Zigzag
Inca Trail (even though the original was knit in fingering weight and made a rectangular wrap, the Poems Silk could make it into a truly lovely blanket/afghan.)
Autumn Palette (ditto)
Rigoles (one of my absolute favorites)
