New luxury 4-ply and sport weight yarns for 2017

Sandy golden yellow Baby Alpaca, silk and linen sport weight yarn. Hand-dyed by Triskelion Yarn.

It has been a busy spring at Triskelion Yarn, and I’m very proud of our new yarns, ‘Geraint’ and ‘Mona’.

Geraint Sport is a perfect combination of British Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) luxury and a good all round general purpose yarn. It’s superwash and with a rounded 3-ply construction, it’s excellent for many different sorts of projects from hats and gloves to light summer sweaters and shawls.

The Mona yarns are a simply stunning blend of 50% baby alpaca, 25% silk and 25% linen. The yarn feels soft and smooth, yet has a striking heathered effect caused by the linen resisting the dye, and the high silk and linen content gives the yarn a cool, summery handle. At the moment there are two yarn weights – Mona Sport and Mona 4-Ply – with a heavy lace/3-ply to come.
