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?
