NEW Mineville Merino Nylon DK

mineville merino nylon dk DISPLAY

Mineville Merino Nylon DK

Mineville Wool Project Merino Nylon DK (1124) is soft, machine washable, easy to work with, easy to wear, and subs easily for other DK weight yarns (Debbie Bliss Rialto, Madeline Tosh DK, etc). It comes in a generous 100g/200m skein, which is enough to make an adult hat or pair of mitts (you’ll need two for a scarf or Honey Cowl, and about 6 for a women’s size medium sweater – check your pattern for full yardage requirements). With the nylon content, it’s also great for socks!

Mineville Wool Project is an “off-brand” brand from the sisters at Fleece Artist and Handmaiden. The prices are excellent because we purchase the yarn in one-time only lots. This means that once it’s gone, it’s GONE, so be sure to order enough for your project.

NEW Malabrigo Mechita

Malabrigo Mechita DISLAY BLOG

Malabrigo Mechita

This one is a winner, right out of the gate. It’s got sex appeal, customers were ooooing and awwwwing all over it as I was unpacking and merchandising the yarn, taking it off the shelf as fast as I put it on. We’re working on a Nuvem wrap.

Mechita is a super soft & squishy single ply fingering-weight version of Malabrigo’s beautifully-dyed Mecha. Just as soft and rich as the original, but prefect for lighter projects. Mechita is great for shawls, scarves, hats, garments, accessories, baby and kids items, lace, cables, textured stitches, even socks.

Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag.

  • 100% Superwash Merino Wool
  • 100g/384m (420yds)
  • 2.25mm to 2.75mm needles (US 1 to 2)
  • 3.25 to 4mm hook (US D to G)
  • Fingering Weight
  • 26 to 30 sts = 4″/10cm
  • Machine cool, lay flat to dry
