September Classic Review: Yarn to Crave after!

Yarn to Crave after!


Crave: krāv - verb - feel a powerful desire for (something). This month's yarn lives up to it's name and is definitely something that you will have a strong yearning to work with. Amor Valdez, owner and designer at Crave Yarns picks only the softest yarn that will make it hard to put your project down. Specializing in natural fibers like alpaca, merino and silk, our featured yarn "Hither" is just as luxurious and soft.


Made of 80% American merino, Amor says her yarn has the power to spark glee in your heart, and we think it will evoke extreme happiness! This box contains two skeins of the single ply wool "Hither". At 284 yards per skein, you will be receiving 568 yards to make either of our two designer's pieces. 


Tempt Me- Either / Red
Deep Sea - Bright / Teal
Curio - Bright / Blue
Pirouette - Muted / Pink
Blue Whale - Muted / Grey Blue
Stoic Bliss - Muted / Purple

Crave's own Amor Valdez has designed this lovely and simple knit "Zalia Shawl". This covetable piece is a great cold weather staple, perfect for the impending fall weather which is just around the corner. 




Our crochet designer is good friends of Crave. Deborah Grossman designed this beautiful "Moroccan Moonlight" scarf. The open work stitches makes this a piece to pine for. Wear it as an accessory to any outfit at any time of the year. 



This month's swatch is the crochet Zig Zag Puff Stitch. We have featured a puff stitch in the past but this one is particularly lovely as it creates a nice dense fabric that works up so nicely with Crave's Hither.
