It’s hard to believe that spring will actually come one day, but we’ll be thinking about lighter weight garments pretty soon! Hikoo has recently introduced three new yarns, Rylie (a beautiful alpaca/silk/linen blend), Simplinatural (a luxurious alpaca/silk/wool blend) and CoBaSi Plus (a worsted weight version of our popular fingering weight CoBaSi).
Let’s take a closer look at Rylie, shall we?
This lightweight luxury sportweight yarn is a transeasonal wonder. Lusciously soft baby alpaca is enriched with the elegant drape and gleam of mulberry silk and the rustic tactile appeal of linen. Each fiber takes the dye slightly differently, which results in a lovely heathered colorways. Dyed in soft pastels, beachy brights and glowing neutrals, Rylie has excellent stitch definition, too! Each 100-gram hank is 274 yards and knits up to 6 stitches to the inch on a US 3 or 4 needle.
The shade card show the fabulous colorway range. There’s a color for every type of garment or accessory!
The Scalloptini Pullover (available through your local yarn store) is the perfect warm-weather layering piece. The femininity of the lace is accentuated by the beautiful drape of the fabric.
The talented designer and shop owner StevenBe takes the yarn in a completely different direction with his Really Rylie cowl (available as a Ravelry download), where he double strands Rylie with Schulana Kid-Paillettes.
Stop by your local Skacel shop and experience this and our other beautiful yarns in person!
