Pollock is a lovely new yarn from Juniper Moon Farm, a 55% Silk, 45% Linen blend with 349 yards (320m) per 100g ball.  

The colorways are a beautiful marled blend of colors, incorporating many hues together to make what at first glance looks lilke an almost-solid though one with great depth.  

*****

We brought in three colorways to try out

So here we have put together on one web page for you some great yarns perfect for warmer weather, and particularly wonderful for anyone who avoids animal fibers for any reason (be it philosophical, because of a sensitivity, or just for a change).

The three Pollock colorways: 

#106:  Greyed Rainbow:  This combines pinks and golds and violets in a soft warm neutral blend.  

#107: The Deep:  This is a somewhat darker blend of colors, including again pinks and adding roses and lilacs with a touch of gray.   

#108: Blue Poles:  As it suggests, this is a blend of varying blues from pale cloudy skies to deep oceans, some with a touch of aqua to them and some tending towards indigo.

Some pattern suggestions: 

I made a lovely Wingspan for myself with other colors of these yarns and it was a wonderful knit. I used it at the time to teach a friend of mine how to knit; we both did the same project together on a week-long vacation and at the end both had a marvelous piece to wear. 

This Pamorama Shawl would be stunning in any of these yarns.

The original Crosshatch Shawl shown here would be an awesome piece.  

And take a look at the lovely Murano Squares here so another idea of what to knit with any of these.  Use a few of the Pollocks together for a really nice look.
