Laine Issue 9

It’s Launch Day for Laine Issue 9 - and the newest issue continues to set a high bar for knitting publications of the world.  Issue 9 includes 13 patterns that inspire us and comfort us all at once.  This issue features designs by Rachel Brockman, Verena Cohrs, Olga Buraya-Kefelian, and Whitney Hayward - among others.  It also includes photographs that suggest peace and quiet, recipes that we want to savor, as well as thoughtful essays and profiles.

Laine’s future is uncertain, and this issue may be the last.  Issue Nine’s Editor’s Letter is filled with candor, and the issue ends with a beautiful essay by Jeannette Sloan on self-care and mindfulness.  These pieces have broad appeal that transcend the fiber community.  Whether this is the last issue of Laine or there are many to come, this issue should not be missed.

We Dream of Sueño

A big shipment of HiKoo’s Sueño just popped into Wool & Grace, and it’s filled with tons of new colors of this delicious yarn.  We love this versatile dk-weight yarn for so many reasons.  This superwash yarn is a super soft blend of Merino and bamboo.  It’s smooth and bouncy and easy to work with, plus it’s incredibly soft on the skin.  Its user-friendly quality makes it ideal for baby and kids’ clothes, accessories and blankets, but it’s sophisticated enough to use for people of all ages.  

Our new shipment of Sueño includes beautiful solids and tonals.  Each skein is 225 yards.  Solids are $16 and tonals are $19.50.  

While we were busy receiving gorgeous new colors of Sueño, our awesome Lori finished up the French Macaron baby sweater (pictured above) using two colors of Sueño.  Lori describes this project as being a cinch.  While the construction is atypical, it’s also a piece of cake.  Plus, French Macaron is a free pattern by The Noble Thread!  To make French Macaron, you’ll need 1-2 skeins of each color, depending on size.  Click here to access this lovely, free pattern via Ravelry - and click here to learn more about Sueño on our website or to buy online!

Mary's Tweed:
Our New Favorite Worsted Weight Workhorse

Mary's Tweed from Lana Grossa is a new arrival at Wool & Grace, and it's already a favorite at the shop.  This is a yarn that knits up beautifully into almost anything.  We can't wait to make everything including hats, mittens, scarves and wraps, sweaters, blankets and more.  Mary's Tweed as a gorgeous tweed texture and is soft.  It's a light worsted-weight yarn and can straddle the line between dk- and worsted-weight with ease.  It comes in a plethora of beautiful colors, and its composition makes it suited for colorwork, cables and lace.  Mary's Tweed is a blend of alpaca, wool, silk and polyamide.  Each ball is 150 yards and $17.  Click here to learn more and buy online!
