Spirit Trail Fiberworks Brigantia

Spirit Trail Fiberworks Brigantia [85% Polwarth; 15% silk]: 600 yds/549 m per 210 g hank – this is the yarn i am using for my Tucci sweater, mentioned in a previous post.  I am using Versailles for my sweater personally.

 

This was the yarn that was recommended for the pattern but at first the price scared me away.  However then i went to Rhinebeck (a post for later) and felt the demo knit up model.  And suddenly just like that i was in love.  Seriously i am not kidding.  The Polwarth makes it all soft and luxurious a bit like alpaca.  But the silk makes it all shiny and awesome.  The feel of the fabric made from it is just so… OK the only word i can think of is delicious.  The fabric is delicious.

 

Now, this is not Malabrigo, which i maintain knits itself, but it is pretty darn close.  I am not yet done with the sweater, but this yarn is a keeper.  The skeins are HUGE.  i am going to have leftovers.  I am already making plans on what to do with that.

 

What would you do with delicious purple yarn?
