I am really excited to see the first fibre explorer’s package head out to you all today. Each month is themed around the origin of the yarn, and this month’s yarn comes to us from Lorna’s Laces in Chicago! It is the new Sportmate – available first to our club members. This brand new yarn from Lorna’s is a sport weight version of their Solemate yarn. It is a blend of superwash merino, nylon and Outlast. Outlast is a wonderful fibre that regulates temperature. So a pair of socks knitted with this yarn would keep your feet warm in the winter and cool in the warmer days. The four colors that we got for this month’s club are all brand new and named after areas in Chicago.
We paired the yarn with a lovely Irish soap and a good green cocktail recipe – a nod at the city with 12 Irish mayors in its history. We included two pattern options.
If you aren’t exploring with us yet, grab a spot fast! We do have some spots left in the club and you can provide us with some guidance on your color preferences. Jump on over here to read the full details, costs and registration info.
*Please note that you are not able to select your package colors specifically. You will be given a package based on the color preferences provided to us. (Although feel free to trade with other club members!) We will record what color you receive to prevent you from getting repeat colors with future packages.
