Meet Zumie! New for fall 2014!

Skacel is excited to announce the arrival of HiKoo’s new quick-knit … Zumie (pronounced ‘zoo-me’)! 

A well-balanced blend of wool, nylon, and acrylic, this voluminous fiber works up effortlessly on US 13 needles, providing wonderful drape and stitch definition. Each hank is 110 yards and 200 grams.

Available in 24 colors, Zumie is available through your LYS or local HiKoo stockist.

Playing on Zumie’s quick-knit element, each hank features two complimentary patterns printed on the inside of the banding (for those seeking some instant gratification).  The hat or cowl can each be knit with just one skein! They will definitely be my go-to gift knit this fall.

The pattern uses a cool slip-stitch ribbing technique, which you can see demonstrated on our YouTube channel, Skacelevision.

 Zumie will begin arriving in shops in mid-to-late June. These projects are perfect vacation knitting, so be sure to pick up a few skeins. You can knock out some holiday gifts before school starts!
