We are really excited to introduce our newest hand dyed yarns from Emily Foden of Viola Yarns!
This indie dyer from Toronto loves fibre (just like us!) and gets inspiration for her beautiful colorways from her surroundings.
We’re lucky enough to be carrying two of her unique and lovely yarns:
Viola Fancy Sock is a sumptuous blend of 70% alpaca, 20% silk and 10% cashmere in a fingering weight. At 437 yards per skein you have enough to create shawls, cowls, scarves… A wonderful treat for yourself or a gift for that special person! We think this would be perfect for the Spring Leaves scarf by Katrin Vorbeck. Emily used this yarn in her Radioactive colorway for a beautiful Boneyard Shawl.
Viola Silky DK is a shimmering plied 50% merino 50% silk blend with an amazing depth of color. At 231 yards you can create projects from shawls to sweaters in just a few skeins.
Try Gudrun Johnston’s Simmer Dim shawl or this gorgeous Cedar Leaf Shawlette (shown in the Marigold colorway) – both use just two skeins. For a sweater, we love Ysolda Teague’s Coraline cardigan or Cecily Glowik Macdonald’s Breakwater.
Carina Spencer’s Toorie hat pattern makes the most of a single skein of this lovely yarn as well!
