Guest: Kathy and our Berroco Rep., Andra Asars, discuss the New Spring yarns from Berroco.
Fuji – worsted silk/cotton blend, almost a tweed or marled effect due to the fibers taking the dye differently
Maya(Andra’s current yarn crush!) – a chainette construction pima cotton/baby alpaca blend soft and machine washable with beautiful drape
Karma – bulky cotton in a fish net construction, like the ruffle yarns, but meant to be knit as a classic yarn.
The cover sweater, Niche, from Norah Gaughan Collection Vol. 12 is knit in Maya.
Additional patterns are published throughout the season and can be found in Knitbits.
