ZOOM Cowl

Old Man Winter is in town for awhile and has been stirring things up in his usual fashion with snow flurries, wind chill warnings, and icy drizzle.  Heading south to a sunny locale is always a tempting option, but for those of us who choose to embrace the beauty of icicles dripping from the eaves and treetops covered in a blanket of powdery snow, its just a matter of insulating from the cold with woolen layers.

This week, we feature our top dog, a fabulous new merino yarn that puffs up on the needles creating soft billowy stitches.

Diamond Luxury Ecstasy

We took the thickest superfine merino fleece we could find on the planet and had it spun into a top notch polar weight yarn that is so incredibly plush you might just have a sudden urge to nestle up close to it and drift off into dreamland.  Ecstacy from our in-house collection is available now at your lys for winter knitting in twelve contemporary shades.  Cream and Smoke Signal (shown above).

Two balls of Ecstasy plus two hours of knitting will create our ZOOM Cowl which can be worn in multiple ways for added warmth.
