Jill Draper has released a whole new set of colors this fall in her delightful Kingston yarn. They are now fully in stock at the shop!
Kingston is a Targhee Wool grown in the Finger Lakes region on a family owned & operated farm. Jill sources the fibre and then dyes it in the wool in her gorgeous primary colors and black. It is then carded into all of the amazing colors that you see here before it is spun into a springy 3 ply yarn. The result is a lovely DK weight yarn that is sure to be your favorite sweater. Each color is created from several primary colors of wool, resulting in a truly dynamic yarn with exciting flecks of color that allow all of the colors to coordinate well together.
Each color is named after the streets in Jill’s home base of Kingston.
- 270 yards DK weight
- 100% Wool – Targhee
- 18-22 sts. to 4 in. / US 5-7
Found in the Mason Dixon Field Guide No 10 (at the shop), this quick knit will keep you warm this winter and would make a wonderful gift.
This cute design by Kirsten Kapur is also a quick knit!
This yarn is begging to be a sweater and with the new colors, there are so many amazing color combos for a fair isle cardi!
This Laura Nelkin design is seamless and knitted side to side so be sure to get your row gauge right! It’s adorable and makes good use of those Jul closures you may have been collecting.
