New color in Kauni Effektgarn.

This week, we received an exciting shipment: a brand new colorway in Kauni Effektgarn, a sport weight, self-striping wool.

The yarn in any given skein of Kauni shifts gradually from one color to the next, and it’s these long color repeats that set it apart from other self-striping yarns. Kauni┬ácan yield fascinating and stunning results in colorwork, brioche, mosaic, and double knitting, and you can get a good sense of how this yarn behaves by looking through patterns and projects on Ravelry that use it. It helps even more to see finished pieces in person, and to that end, we have two knit samples in the shop made of Kauni–a Wingspan and a Wiggle Wrap.

We also have a binder of Kauni patterns that holds all kinds of uses for the yarn; come by the shop to flip through it if you’re seeking inspiration.

    Do you think this could be a good choice for the Entrelac Scarf class or is it too light weight? I think its a beautiful color way!

    • The gauge of the Entrelac Scarf is quite different from what you’d probably get from Kauni, but I think if you used a smaller needle and were happy with a narrower scarf, it would work just fine. I’d love to see how those long color repeats come out in an entrelac pattern!
