From May 10th – June 5th, we have Colinette and Schulana yarns discounted during our Going-to-Market Sale: single skeins are 30% off, or 40% off when you buy 10 or more! Throughout the sale, I’ll be highlighting some of these yarns and giving ideas for what to make with them. Today: spotlight on Schulana Sojabama.
Schulana Sojabama is a dk weight blend of 55% bamboo and 45% soy, with 120 yards on each 50 gram ball. These smooth, silky plant fibers have maximum drape, making Sojabama perfect for lightweight scarves, shawls, and loose-fitting summer sweaters.
Looking through projects on Ravelry using Sojabama, I spotted a few “Summer Flies” shawls and the lovely lace “Gridwork” scarf. The natural drape of this yarn makes it ideal for the “Drop Stitch Scarf,” as well, or cast on extra stitches for a wider piece and make a drop stitch shawl.
For larger garments, consider Amy Herzog’s “Bryony,” Purl Soho’s “Silken Straw Summer Sweater,” or Shellie Anderson’s “Nova,” “Meridian,” and “Interval.” Sojabama is the right gauge for an “Easy Folded Poncho,” and would make a lovely summer version of that timeless pattern, perfect for covering up in chilly air-conditioned spaces.
Come by the shop to check out Schulana Sojabama and all our other discounted yarns during the Going-to-Market Sale!
A reminder: all sales are final on discounted items. There can be no returns or exchanges, nor special orders–the discount applies only to what we currently have in stock. Thanks!
