If you love Big Wool, you are going to LOVE Big Wool Silk!
First Up? Let's look at the newest addition to the Big Wool series (Big Wool, Big Wool Colour, and discontinued Drift too!).
BIG WOOL SILK!
Yes, Big Wool has been refined and polished with the addition of 30% Silk to the 70% Wool base. It is put up in exactly the same 100g 80m balls as Big Wool, so any design that has been published using Big Wool/Big Wool Colour, can be knit in this yarn!
Using Big Wool Silk will give your knit a beautiful sheen, make it soft to the touch and luxurious to wear, showing off perfect stitch definition no matter what you knit - stocking stitch, texture or cables!
Rowan has added to the selection of designs suitable for the "Big Wool Family" with the addition of "Autumn Accessories", 14 accessory and garment designs by Marie Wallin. These new designs are shown knit up in either Big Wool or the new Big Wool Silk....to reinforce how these yarns are totally interchangeable!
Knitting with this yarn was sublime. That 30% silk takes that quick chunky knit that we love to make to a whole new level. I loved how this yarn felt while running through my fingers, and look at the stitch definition!
My favourites from the "Autumn Accessories" collection are...
|What a gorgeous accent sweater!|
Nutmeg, shown in "Raffie" Big Wool Silk
|This wrap design, Cassia, would keep your shoulders warm...|
maybe for that night at the theatre? or a winter dinner party?
