Boheme

There are some yarns that catch the eye at first glance and remind us how incredibly far the yarn industry has come along.  Boheme by Debbie Bliss is one of these yarns, a fanciful new bulky so visibly different from most with its chainette-style construction and dramatically-freckled appearance.  While many yarns are categorized as plied, which consists of two or more strands spun together, Boheme belongs to a remarkable new breed of innovation.  To manufacture chainette yarns, a circular weft machine is used, designed with a tiny ring of six or more needles very similar to the wooden knitting spools used by children to create a knitted tube.  The fascinating thing about chainette yarns is how springy they are. Being hollow in the centre allows for a big bulky yarn like Boheme to knit up incredibly lightweight while the chainette construction creates elasticity to retain the overall shape of the knitted garment.
