New to Haus ~ Perennial

New to our fingering weight department this week: Perennial from Kelbourne Woolens...and we think Perennial will live up to its name! It's an exceptionally soft blend of superwash Merino, Suri alpaca, and nylon that can be hand- or machine-washed. The stunning color palette features neutrals, muted shades, and brights that all coordinate with one another for beautiful shawls, socks and fun lightweight sweaters. 

While Perennial is versatile and could be used for anything from shawls to socks, we have our hearts set on using it for the Outline Tee from Jessie Maed Designs. Outline is worked from the bottom up to the underarm and then separated at the front and back and worked flat; after that, dropped stitches frame the edges of this softly structured tee. We think Perennial will be perfect!

Shop Perennial HERE! We also have Perennial mini skeins (squeee!!), perfect for THIS shawl pattern!


Noro Geshi

Just in! Six new glorious shades of Geshi, a blend of viscose, cotton, silk, and wool in a DK weight. We love the idea of using it for the incredibly popular Nightshift Shawl from Andrea Mowry. There are quite a few Night Shifts logged on Ravelry that use two skeins of Geshi (one skein each of two different colors) for a spring/summer/warmer climate version. Check them out HERE! Geshi's subtle color shift is amplified in Nightshift by working a few rows from one color, then changing to another throughout the simple slip stitched pattern. 

Shop Geshi HERE; the pattern for Nightshift is right HERE!
