December Classic Review: Feederbrook Farms

The Land of Milk and Honey

We're always on the lookout for something a little bit different.Crafting is always that little bit more fun when you've discovered a new fiber or texture. When Yarnbox favorite Feederbrook Farms introduced their new yarn Entropy DK Milk and Honey, it was a must feature!

This yarn is a delicious DK-weight blend of 68% merino, 16% alpaca and 16% milk fiber. Milk fiber is manufactured from milk casein protein and creates a fiber that is environmentally friendly, formaldehyde-free, and antimicrobial. With a similar strength and texture as wool, the casein adds additional luster and drape.

Dyed in the colorful two-ply transitional Entropy colorways which mimic handspun, you'll have two skeins with 260 yards each to swoon over.
Top: Cadmium, Bismuth, Strontium  (Brights), Radium, Xenon (Either)
Bottom (Muted): Manganese, Antimony, Argon, Selenium, Silicon

Our knit and crochet designers focused on texture to show off these gorgeous colors. Kaiyo by knit designer Noriko Ho is a loose poncho featuring alternating sections of seed stitch and lace.

The Slice of Fall Wrap by crochet designer Jessie Rayot is an asymmetrical wedge shawl in moss stitch.

Amanda Pratt created another great loom pattern this month, Autumn Rainbows Shawl. See her blog post here for more!
