The silk merino lace yarns are ALL stunning! I particularly love Blaze and Smoke and Mirrors. Blaze has that gorgeous, bright, almost juicy quality, it reminds me of the Clementines that are so popular at this time of year! Smoke and Mirrors looks so soft and sleek and cozy, like it would make the perfect shawlette for snuggling up during the cold months and looking elegant while staying warm! :D

eclecticitee said...

Oh my, the tussah silk sliver in storm in a teacup is gorgeous!

And I love all the shades of the lace yarn, especially sky! Just beautiful...

Chris said...

"Smoke and Mirrors" would make a lovely evening shawl!

I usually gravitate towards blue, but for some reason the Merino/Silk laceweight in the "Blaze" colorway really caught my eye. All of it is rather beautiful, though!

I love "Smoke and Mirrors" merino/silk blend yarn. I can see it in a shawl, hat, or fingerless mitts.

I love the yarn in Smoke and Mirrors, but that Sky is gorgeous, too. Looking at the fiber makes me want to learn to spin.

Wow. The smoke and mirrors and the lime sorbet are just gorgeous; I'd have a tough time choosing between those two. I'd love to try my hand at lace sooner rather than later.

andrea said...

Silky Merino? Please, I just want to touch it. I'm a color blue person, so Sky does it for me. I'm might just cuddle with it for a few days should I end up with it at my house. I'd take really good care of it! Promise!!! I'd knit it up into a shawl and then it could cuddle with me!

Tara said...

The Blaze merino silk yarn looks so pretty, I would love to see it in person

diane said...

I actually went "aaaahhhhhh" when I looked at the colorway that she describes as the colors of the sky just before the sun dips below the horizon. Maybe Santa will bring it to me?

.50/50 merino/silk lace yarn in smoke and mirrors is a wonderful midtone grey that would look so well with so many colors.

Wow that whole shop is great, my favorite is the lime sorbet colorway of the lace for sure, but I'm always partial to greens ;)

Marlitharn said...

Love the lime sorbet! It seems like the drearier winter gets around here, the more I crave gorgeous shades of green.

Judi A. said...

I am drawn again to the blue lace yarn, Sky, but that color Blaze is gorgeous, too. Makes me want to knit something with each and then wrap myself up in them! :-)

Smoke and mirrors. There is just something so beautiful about a simple grey. Definitely my pick.

But I do love blue so maybe this skein of lace yarn will end up mine?

Wendy said...

Loving that poppy shock! I wish I was better at spinning the lace weight. I do okay on the singles, but I can't spin my singles tiny enough to do a 2-ply lace. Practice makes perfect, I guess!

ikkinlala said...

I love the silk/merino lace yarn in sky.

Kimmy said...
