Looking to add a little sparkle to your life?
Check out Simonetta yarn from Louisa Harding.
Simonetta is a 60% Nylon, 26% Kid Mohair, 14% Metallic Polyester blend with approximately 264 yards per 50g ball. It is available in 12 colors. The metallic polyester is either gold or silver, depending on which coordinates better with the base color.
There is a coordinating book with eight patterns for garments and accessories. Actually, it has 14 patterns if you consider that some of them have variations.
For instance there are two versions of Leonarda hat. Either the bi-colored beret at the top of the post or the single color pom pom cap above.
The lovely Madelena scarf also has a single or bi-colored version. This scarf is a fun knit with the lace body and a the ruffled edged, which is worked at the same time as the body of the scarf using short rows.
The metallic fibers are soft and flexible so they don’t pose any problems with wearing this yarn against your skin.
Meanwhile, the kid mohair creates a light, lofty fabric that keeps you warm without weighing you down.
Doesn’t Francesca look like a great cardigan to wrap up in when you’re out leaf-peeping this fall? Start now and you’ll probably be done in time to see the leaves start turning.
Louisa’s signature style comes through in feminine patterns like Agnella. This cropped cardigan will make a good cover up for the office.
Would you like a chance to try some Simonetta?
I will randomly select 10 people who left a comment to each receive a ball of Simonetta yarn! (Void where prohibited. Open to US residents [since we're the US distributor].)
When you leave the comment and the system asks for your information be sure to include your email address so I can contact you if you win.
In case you’re wondering, one ball is enough to make Leonarda or Madelena from the book. Or the Cosimo Scarf (below), which is a free pattern on our website.
Winners will be selected and announced on Friday July 20.
