Every once in awhile a new yarn comes along that truly embodies the feeling of the season. This Spring, Summertime Light is sitting front and centre in our collection, a finer version of our popular Summertime, appealing to knitters and crocheters alike with its vivacious energy and fresh look. When the light catches it in just the right way, it shimmers…..
Introducing Summertime Light, a soft and shimmery yarn enhanced with subtle colour highlights spun in a linen, cotton and acrylic base. This sport weight yarn offers a palette of ten irresistible shades and is the quintessential choice for wispy shawls, cool comfortable cardigans, and airy summer ponchos.
Filling in the accessory gap this season, our latest design in Summertime Light, is a delicate layer to wear as a shoulder shawl or neck scarf. Ideal for beginners, this is a quick project to knit. Gift one to a special friend or make a few in different shades just for yourself!
