This blog post is designed as a useful resource for inspiration for a specific yarn. There are projects that use it, and patterns that call for it. It's so handy to have all this in one place!
Just FYI - there are no links to Ravelry here. We've linked to patterns and projects that are available to purchase/view elsewhere. If they're only available on Ravelry we will say that, but not link to it.
Like its lighter-weight counterpart Brimham DK is a very soft, squishy yarn which has just the right amount of bounce but also a little drape. The extrafine merino is the best quality we can get, and it has a little nylon added for extra strength and durability. This makes it very versatile for all sorts of projects from accessories to garments.
The first part of this blog post will give you patterns that specifically call for Brimham DK and the second part shows you our projects using these yarns. Do you have a project in Brimham DK that you would like us to include? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with an image and the pattern information and we will add it. This page will grow over time as more designs are released and more projects finished!
For most of the designs released since 2018 you can find links to social media for the designers and publications on the Design Collaboration page HERE.
