Here are two new fibers and patterns at YBD.
Austermann Merino Lace:
Austermann Merino Lace knitting yarn, top quality pure merino laceweight yarn from Italy at a great price. It's a classic soft and smooth laceweight yarn, easy to work with and giving good stitch definition. Austermann Merino Lace knits to a lace tension of 30st/ 42 rows to 10cm on 3 - 3.5mm needles and can be handwashed at 30'. 25g per ball, 350m.
This adorable one-skein project is free with a purchase of the Merino Lace. This pattern is also available in women's sizes.
"Aventica" by SMC is a Heavy Worsted weight woven blend of 65% Acrylic, 25% New Wool and 10% Polyester. This yarn is available in a variety of self-striping variegated colorways ranging from neutrals to muted tones to brights. Machine washable and very soft, "Aventica" would be a good choice for cold weather garments and accessories such as sweaters, hats, and scarves for the entire family.
The pattern support has beautiful designs throughout ranging from children sizes to adult.
