The yarn has been on special all week here at Summit Yarn Studio, regularly $8.50 a ball, it has been $6.50 a ball and will remain so through end of business day tomorrow at 2pm. Ewetopia has received Cat Bordhi’s recommendations and after having worked with it in every color, I love this wonderful, lofty, sproingy yarn. Another good name for this yarn would have been — Bounce — because it has so much life, bloom and drape. The yarn is composed of two plies, one of extrafine merino (at the finest micrometer) and one of superwash extrafine merino — for the purpose that the two plies would take the dye color differently and create a marled yarn. Some of the marls are more obvious than others and some of the colors have a resplendent mutable quality to them — they are different colors in different light — like the stone Alexandrite.
Everyone who has “met” this yarn has immediately wanted to do at least one sweater with it. Robin has completed two out of three sweaters, Chris is nearly done with her first, Suzy purchased by Pink for a Pullover (ala Simple Summer Tweed by Heidi Kirrmaier — free on Ravelry), Barbara and Charlotte are both waiting for “The Angel”, my newest design and have their yarn tucked away. Here are some photos:
There are many other new designs available for EWETOPIA, all of which will be available at this June’s Columbus TNNA at the booth for Frog Tree Yarns. The is the most popular new yarn here at Summit Yarn Studio. If your LYS does not yet carry Frog Tree Yarns, a minimum order is just one bag of any of their wonderful yarns. Bear in mind, this is a not-for-profit company, so purchasing their yarns does good on both your needles and in this world.
