Sprout

Sprout
Sprout is a soft, cushy organic yarn with a slightly nubby texture. One of its best features is that it stays lofty, unlike many worsted-plus weight cotton yarns that tend to be heavy and dense once knit. Sprout is spun from Tanguis cotton. This stout hardy cotton plant was developed in the early 1900’s. The plant’s ubiquitous presence and dependability have earned it the title “white gold” from the farmers who plant and harvest it.

Sprout is available in a bright-and-lively palette and it’s machine washable. Add to this the wonderful soft texture, strength, and the light yet quick-to-knit gauge and it is easy to see why Sprout makes a great choice.

Sprout is art of the Verde Collection of environmentally conscious yarns, see more yarns from the Verde Collection here.

Meadowlark

Meadowlark

The unique blend of fibers in Meadowlark – silk, linen and viscose – combine to make a tweed yarn perfect for year-round wear. The quick-knitting gauge is just right for trans-seasonal projects, not too light and not too bulky.

MinnowMerino

MinnowMerino
MinnowMerino is a worsted weight, single ply 100% merino yarn with a micron count as lovely as cashmere. This kid-friendly yarn is available in Jil’s signature, gorgeous, saturated colors. And it’s machine washable! If you're looking for the same great color range in a cotton yarn, check out CottonTail, Jil's other yarn that knits up at the same exact gauge.

Comprehensive pattern support can be found in Jil Eaton’s kid-friendly Quick Knits collection of leaflets.

Fresco

Fresco
Fresco is a smooth and even 3-ply sport weight yarn. The plies are twisted together tightly enough to make a firm, springy yarn, but not so tightly that the yarn loses its lofty, soft hand. The fiber blend—wool (for warmth and strength), alpaca (for loft and sheen), and a bit of angora (to provide a soft halo)—makes a yarn that’s warm, soft, and slightly fuzzy.

Fresco is available in an expansive palette, which makes it great for colorwork projects. However, because of the ply, the yarn is also great for textured stitches and lace.

Horizon

Horizon
Horizon is a soft, single-ply, wool blend yarn in a bulky weight for quick, warm knits. Its gently variegated colors create a smooth transition from one to another - with a strand of slubby silk adding interest in the form of a subtle tweedy look.

New for Fall 2013.

Soft Linen

Soft Linen
Soft Linen is the perfect yarn for warmer days and soft, cool nights. The alpaca makes a beautiful halo, the linen gives it a crisp and firm hand and the wool provides stability and its own level of softness.

This year-round yarn works equally well for lace, colorwork and textures. This makes it a particularly good choice for accessories that will get a lot of use, like hats, belts, shawls, scarves and mitts.

Cerro

Cerro
Cerro is a blend of soft pima cotton and alpaca that creates a yarn with drape and excellent stitch definition. These summery hues are complimented by Cerro’s undyed cousin, MountainTop Canyon.

Classic Silk

Classic Silk
What a great hand! This warm-weather silk/cotton combination has a great nubby look with a little sheen and a great natural silk feel. Classic Silk comes a wonderful variety of colors that look great together and alone.

Inca Alpaca

Inca Alpaca
Inca Alpaca is soft, sturdy and very warm--even when wet. Alpaca is a smoother fiber than wool, giving it a luster that many wools lack. It’s also a dry fiber; there’s no lanolin to worry about if you’re one of the folks who reacts to lanolin in wool.

The great color range in Inca Alpaca make it great not only for fair isle, but also for finding that one perfect color for solid garments and accessories.
