New Vegan Yarns!

15 Jan

Did anyone else see that Berroco has a few new vegan yarns coming out for Spring/Summer? I’m pretty excited about them!

As you know I’m already a fan of Weekend, so I was excited to see that Weekend Chunky is in the works. Looks like it will be good for snuggly scarves and other accessories.

Glint is 80% Cotton, 12% Nylon, 8% Metallic. This is definitely a good yarn for a summer pullover or tee. I used to not be into anything shiny, but in my knitwear class last semester encouraged me to use some metallics in my designs and I found it really grew on me. I’m especially liking the Golden Fleece color way.

And then there is Linsey which is 64% cotton and 36% linen. Linsey comes in some really gorgeous color ways, both solid and variegated. If I wasn’t on cardigan hiatus I would be picking out the perfect light weight cardigan to cast on for with this yarn.

And the best thing? All these yarns have corresponding pattern booklets! Love that.

I’m really liking the Peterborough cardigan from Norah Gaughan Vol. 8 for Linsey:

Do you think you’ll be trying out any of these new yarns?

    agreed! I think you’ll really like the Weekend. I saw a cardigan knit up with it and it was so pretty!
