Stone Washed Yarn

Happy Tuesday! I hope you are having a wonderful week! Today I would love to share with you one more visual story I created with beautiful skeins by Wool and the Gang. Their limited edition Stone Washed yarn, released in collaboration with Rowan, is a soft and light tape 100% cotton yarn in beautiful “washed” color that adds depth to the shades.

Stone Washed Yarn

The yarn thread is flat and wide, which makes it very fast to knit – I am using 6 mm needle; but because of the nature of the spun, it stays very light. This feature makes it perfect for light spring/summer garments that are very easy to knit. Simple basic stitches are the best choice for this kind of yarn – the texture is created by the thread itself.

I promise myself to make a cropped summer top for the last three summers, but never get it done. But this yarn is so inspiring that it’d be a crime to keep it in the stash! Plus I know it will be a very fast knit that I’ll really enjoy!

I hope you enjoyed one more chapter in my “yarn stories” and will cast on something light and summery!

Have a wonderful week!

    The colour depth on that yarn is really amazing. I probably at first wouldn’t know what to make with such flat yarn, but I think a summer top is a really good idea!

    I’ve never used “yarn” like this – and it doesn’t really seem like yarn to my mind! That said, I am fascinated to see what you will make with it, love the colour too.

      I know – it does look and feel so different from everything we are normally used to. But I guess this is exactly why I like it so much, it’s great for creativity to change something once in awhile 🙂

    I look forward to seeing the top you make with this yarn, Alina. I like the color you chose to work with. I’m both fascinated and mystified by ribbon yarn when I see it in person. I’ve never worked with it so I’ll be interested in reading your thoughtful comments as you knit with it.

      Thank you so much for support, Becki! I will make sure to document the whole process to give you a clear idea what to expect from this kind of yarn!

    What beautiful pictures of a most interesting yarn! That shade of blue is mesmerizing. I think that a simple summer top knit out of it would be lovely.

    I’ve never seen anything quite like this, I adore the color and you have captured it so beautifully!

    Very well done. As always. beautiful photos.

    I remember my grandma making a lot of sweaters with yarn like this in the 1990s or so. Everything comes back around eventually!
