Laine’s 52 Weeks of Shawls has been a runaway hit here at the Hillsborough Yarn Shop – thanks to everyone who has ordered a copy! The book is full of inspiring patterns, and though we don’t carry every yarn that’s called for, we love helping folks find good substitutions. When Natalya Berezynka, designer of the “Homestead” wrap on the cover, reached out to collaborate with us on yarn bundles for her pattern, we knew just the yarn – Baa Ram Ewe Winterburn DK.
Baa Ram Ewe Winterburn DK:
- DK weight
- 50% bluefaced leicester wool, 50% masham wool
- 252 yards/100g; 6 skeins needed for “Homestead”
- $29 each, $174 for six skeins
Bluefaced Leicester and Masham, two English longwool breeds, bring their signature bounce and luster to this yarn. It’s soft but wooly, springy with a bit of drape, and renders texture patterns beautifully – an excellent choice for a cozy wrap like “Homestead.”
You’ll need 6 skeins of Winterburn DK to knit Natalya Berezynska’s “Homestead,” a total of $174. Pick your favorite color and order online for local pickup or shipping!
