There’s still a little bit of snow on the ground here in Western Massachusetts, but we are already thinking spring! With the coming season, we have four new colors of one of our favorites – Northampton! Northampton is a worsted weight 100% wool yarn that has all of us here at WEBS thinking about colorwork. Keep reading to see some of our picks for your newest colorwork yoke sweater, crochet blanket, or stripy scarf!

Nebula HeatherĀ 

Almost a blackened charcoal color with a hint of turquoise running through the plies, Nebula Heather is a gorgeous base if you’re looking for a not-quite-neutral color to use as a backdrop for rich-looking color patterns.

Stonewash Heather

This shade of blue is just basic enough to go with anything, but it’s anything but bland. Pair it with other neutrals, like Medium Gray or Midnight Heather – we bet it would look smashing against a dark pair of jeans!


A fresh citrus-inspired green just in time for spring! This bright palette is giving us some major purple dinosaur vibes. Bring out your inner 90s kid and knit a colorful yoke sweater with this unexpected quartet of colors. Not feeling the boldness? No worries! Northampton has a huuuuge range of naturals and neutrals for a more toned-down look with a major pop of color.

Capri Blue

This bright blue already has us daydreaming of poolside days and trips to the beach. Since it’s not quite warm enough for that yet in our neck of the woods, why not use these as inspiration for your spring knitting? We’d pair this color with a hot pink and bright yellow, grounding it with a tan base.
