Essence of Autumn is a Canadian hand dyer who really stands out with her unique pallet of colours and her painterly approach to yarn dyeing. If you are looking for expressive, earthy and rich colour combinations, look no further.
This Heather Worsted variety of yarn is a sumptuous blend of merino wool, cashmere and nylon. The luxurious cashmere feel of this yarn makes it really special. Choose it when softness is paramount. Heather Worsted will knit or crochet into the softest garments in your hand made collection. Silky, with a little bit of sheen, and a round tight spin; the nylon makes this yarn strong and able to stand up to lots of wear. It is a perfect yarn for giftable knits too!
Knit Cafe patterns that would suit this yarn include the Branching Out Mittens and the Both Sides Cowl. Choose this yarn for any project that love playful colour.
