Shepherd’s Wool DK is now on sale at 20% off! It was regularly $10 per skein of 120 yards but has been marked down to $8.
Stonehedge Fiber Mill’s Shepherd’s Wool has been a favorite staple of ours since the shop opened, and the DK weight is just as amazing. Each skein is 100% merino wool and super soft! The DK version of this yarn has more plies than the worsted – in a tight twist that creates amazing stitch definition. This is the perfect yarn for just about any project you might want to make. Here are a few ideas!
Jane Richmond’s patterns are much loved in fibre space™, and her Pasha hat is a perfect complement to Shepherd’s DK. It’s a sweet hat that will be just the thing to get through cool autumn days. Make this hat with only 2 skeins. Total yarn cost: $16.
This yarn is just lovely to cable with. The Litchfield mittens from Twist Collective are just dreamy, and the Shepherd’s DK will really make those cables pop. 1 skein will make the mittens, and 4 will make the mittens and the matching hat. Total yarn cost: $8 – $32.
Fair Isle is also a great use for this yarn, as the skeins are sized just right for lots of color changes. This little Snowflake Tea Cosy could not be cuter! Pair it with something from the Old Town Spice & Tea Exchange, and you have the perfect holiday gift. All you need is one skein in each of 2 colors. (Total yarn cost: $16). Tea anyone?
For those of you who have the shawl bug, be sure to check out Filtering Daylight. It’s a great pattern with a very unique construction. We have this knitted up at the shop so you can see it in all its glory in person. Check out Jane’s pattern notes on the shop sample when deciding how much yarn you need. Our sample used 4 skeins of the main color and 1 skein of the contrast color. Total yarn cost: $40.
For those looking for crochet ideas, try the Phannie hat. It requires just 2 skeins of Shepherd’s DK, and will work up in just a day! (Total yarn cost is $16).
Ok, great ready because we saved the best one for last! We are all pretty taken with the From Norway with Love Hat, Scarf, and Mittens set! These adorable matching patterns are free from Anna & Heidi Pickles. The entire set can be worked in five skeins of the main color and one skein in each of five additional colors. With so many color options on this yarn, I am excited to pick out my colors for this set! (Total cost for hat, mittens and scarf: $48).
