Keld Twist: Projects and Patterns using this merino linen yarn

This blog post is designed as a useful resource for inspiration for a specific yarn base. 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.  Keld Twist is the same wonderful blend of superwash merino with linen as found in Keld Fingering and Keld Aran. The linen stands out on...

Tempo 4ply: projects and patterns using our original merino/nylon sock yarn

It occurred to us that it might be really useful to have an ECY way to browse patterns and projects made using specific yarns, for inspiration and ideas. It's one of those things where once you think of it it seems blatantly obvious 🙈🤣  Just FYI - there are no links to Ravelry here. We've linked to patterns and projects that are available to purchase/view elsewhere.  Tempo is a brilliant all-round 4ply sock yarn - it softens considerably after washing for next-to-skin wear. With the nylon content being paired with a more coarse/less fine merino fibre, it is especially hard wearing...

Introducing Pendle Sport - our first sport weight yarn in extrafine merino

Pendle Sport is the same super soft and bouncy extrafine merino found in our other Pendle yarns. It is robustly structured but also has some drape (depending on the gauge it's used at), and is lovely and soft and smooth. Our yarn testers found that as a sport weight yarn this can also be substituted in for 4ply/fingering weight yarns assuming you can make gauge. It has great stitch definition and works beautifully for cables. The stats: 100% Superwash Extrafine Merino100g300m/328yds3 - 5mm needles (US 2.5 - 8)3 - 5mm hook13 WPIIdeally handwash but should also survive a gentle machine...


Pattern recommendations for Bowland Lace

Pattern recommendations for Bowland Lace

We thought it would be really useful to have a blog post of pattern recommendations for our Bowland Lace yarn (we also have Askham Lace - baby alpaca/silk - and Titus Lace - merino/silk - which would work too) as 2ply laceweight isn't the easiest to know what to do with other than lace shawls. These are versatile yarns though and there's so much more than you can do with them.  Before I continue - just a reminder - Bowland Lace is 100% superwash British Bluefaced Leicester wool which is soft, springy, lightweight, and more woolly than our other lace...

Nateby 4ply: Projects and Patterns using our silver sparkly sock yarn with lurex

This blog post is designed as a useful resource for inspiration for Nateby 4ply. 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.  Nateby 4ply is a luxurious blend of superwash merino giving softness, nylon for durability and a strand of silver lurex large enough to sparkle without being scratchy. It's got...
