New colors in Briggs & Little Sport.

This unassuming brown paper package hides the bold colors within – four new shades of Briggs & Little Sport!

Briggs & Little Sport is a delightfully affordable single ply wool from Canada, boasting 430 yards on each 4 oz skein.

Its rustic texture means it’s not especially soft to the touch, but it has a sticky quality to it, making it perfectly suited to felting and stranded colorwork knitting. Once knit, the stitches cling to each other, which is handy for steeking, since it takes some serious pulling and stretching for the cut stitches to unravel.

What to knit with Briggs & Little Sport? A Ravelry search showed that knitters are using this yarn for all kinds of colorwork projects. Consider Jennifer Steingass’s “Darkwater,” Ysolda Teague’s “Threipmuir,” Carrie Bostick-Hoge’s “Branches & Buds Pullover,” or Erica Smith’s “Coronal” and “Anstruther” hats. If colorwork isn’t your thing, check out Erica Smith’s “Diode” and “Catenary Sport” hats.
