Autumn Inspiration: New Yarn, New Colors, & A New Project Kit!

When the air turns crisp, it's time to dive headfirst into creating warm and snuggly accessories and garments. Yak fiber is always an excellent choice because it's as warm and soft as cashmere - plus, it's hypoallergenic. Our newest yarn base, Himalayan Summit, is a luxurious 50/50 blend of Tibetan Yak and Superfine Merino in a fingering weight, and we have so many great colors to choose from for your next project.

The Autumn Spices palette is inspired by the exotic flavors of the season, and we'll be debuting a new addition to this collection at the New York Sheep & Wool Festival This weekend! Here is a sneak peek - can you guess the name?


This mystery color joins our palette of 7 semi-solid and 2 variegated colorways, all of which are perfect for mixing and matching, or for use on their own:

Top Row Above, L-R: Pumpkin Spice, Poppy Seed, Cajun Spice, Cinnamon.
Bottom Row Above, L-R: Oregano, Curry, Turmeric, Juniper Berry, and Barberry.

If you prefer something a little more colorful, try one of these vibrant colorways from Modeknit Yarns:
Above, L-R: Crab Nebula, Old Fashion Villain, and Dragonfly Inn.

The best part about introducing a new yarn to our lineup is finding the perfect patterns to let them shine. We're pleased to debut this exclusive new cowl design from Stefanie Goodwin-Ritter:


The Eyelet of the Tiger Cowl is a lacy cowl that uses the entire skein as you knit a succession of stitch patterns. It would look just as lovely in a semi-solid color as it does shown here in Old Fashion Villain! Each kit includes a skein of Himalayan Summit in the color of your choice, a print copy of the pattern, a BBR Project bag, and a 3-pack of custom made stitch markers from Purrfectly Catchy Designs.


Individual copies of this pattern are also available here; be sure to add this project to your Ravelry notebook or queue.

  1. I have to admit, I didn't even pause to read. I just enlarged the pic, then linked through to the Autumn Spice page, so I know the name you gave the yarn. If I had created this masterpiece, I think I would have named it "Just sit there crying and licking your screen, because that's as close as you'll ever get to this SUPER-MEGA-HYPER-ULTRA-HAPPY-MAGIC yarn, because even if I were penniless and starving, I'll never sell even a single inch of it ... It's MINE! MINE ALL MINE! do you hear me??" Which, along with alerting the authorities that it might be time to take another look at the wisdom of leaving me loose on an unsuspecting world, would certainly win an award for the longest colorway name. May I suggest perhaps a suitable award would be this yarn? ALL OF IT!

    As with all your colorways, this is stunning.
