A recent special order brought in a couple of new shades of Isager Highland Wool, reminding us of just how much we love this yarn.
- light fingering weight
- solid and heathered colors
- 100% Highland wool
- 301 yards/50 g
- $10 each
Some years ago, I made Carol Feller’s “Carpino” holding Highland Wool together with Shibui Silk Cloud, which brought a lustrous, fuzzy luxury to the fabric. It left me wanting to work with Highland Wool again, in a context where its rustic simplicity could shine.
With that in mind, here are a few two-color patterns that make beautiful use of Highland Wool, and some color combinations to get you started!
- “Pinwheel Mitts,” by Ella Austin – fingerless mitts in stranded colorwork
- “Sento,” by Olga Buraya-Kefelian – triangular shawl in two-color brioche
- “Alula,” by Clare Lakewood – triangular shawl in stripes/slip stitch pattern
If any of these patterns or colorways capture your imagination, order online for local pickup or shipping! We’re also happy to answer questions, to be your eyes and hands as you create other color combinations – we know it’s tricky to select colors without being able to come into the shop yourself, and they can look so different in photos than they do in person. Thanks for working with us during our temporary closure!
