Liberty Wool Light

Liberty Wool Light
Best-selling Liberty Wool was begging for a finer weight counterpart--its machine-washability and vibrant color changes lend themselves beautifully to shawls, scarves, socks and fine-gauge garments. Liberty Wool Light is an outstanding sport-weight version of the perennial favorite with the same washability. Available in colorful stripes and solids!

Chesapeake

Chesapeake
Chesapeake, part of the Verde Collection of environmentally conscious yarns, is a wonderful combination of fibers in a yarn that takes you through all seasons. The blend of cool, crisp, organic cotton combined with extra soft Merino wool and the gauge of 5 sts per inch make this a great yarn for both adult and children's garments. The heathered colors are the lovely result of the different ways the vegetable and animal components take the dyes.

Giselle

Giselle
Giselle is a beautiful kid mohair and wool blend. Itís heavier than lace weight but still light and airy.

Kid mohair is fine and lustrous and has many of the good qualities of wool. Itís soft and can absorb moisture yet still feel warm and dry. Mohair (the fiber) comes from Angora goats (the animal). Angora goats are small and friendly, and theyíre shorn twice a year.

Giselle has great body- it is silky smooth to touch and wear, but not so drapey that a piece would lose its shape. When knit on a large needle, Giselle is lightweight and airy. The lustrous mohair also takes dyes beautifully as you can see in the dreamy colors of Giselle.

Naturally Soft Merino

Naturally Soft Merino
Naturally Soft Merino is made entirely from extra fine Merino wool, but it can still be machine washed in cool water, so garments don't have to be saved for special occasions. The lovely twist produces a fabulous, even stitch definition for knitters of all abilities, and rewards the more experienced with superior, springy cables and crisp colour-work.

Seedling

Seedling
Part of the Verde Collection of environmentally conscious yarns, Seedling is a machine washable organic cotton in both solid and handpainted colors. This yarn has the same wonderful texture and softness as Sprout but in a lighter weight. Seedling's organic fiber is more robust and less stressed by chemicals than non-organic cotton, which increases its absorbency and color intensity.

Woodland

Woodland
Woodland, part of the Verde Collection of environmentally conscious yarns, is a combination of wool and environmentally-friendly nettles. Each of these fibers takes the dye differently, giving both the neutral and vibrant colors of Woodland a heathered look.

Nettles are a perennial and require low levels of water and little or no pesticides. Nettle fibers are similar to linen and hemp but produce a softer, silkier fabric. Nettles show color well and when mixed with wool add lightness, minimize shrinkage, and are breathable.
