January Classic Review: Elemental Affects

Spring into a New Year!



In the desert landscape of the Coachella Valley, hand-dyer Jeane deCoster creates a beautiful range of breed-specific yarns for Elemental Affects. Using fiber from American family-owned ranches, she sets out to produce yarns that touch the feelings of knitters and evoke an emotional response.



Cormo breed yarn contains a long-staple, lustrous, and springy wool that is soft against your skin. And, when spun with the right amount of twist, resistant to pills. With lots of stretch, this yarn is great for garments! The 3-ply worsted weight version has 250 yards in a 4 ounce skein, giving you 500 yards of stretchy, springy yarn for the perfect project.



Top: (bright) Cerise, Royale, (either) Raspberry Ice, (muted) Sage
Bottom: (muted) Clove, Pacifica, Cornflower, Storm

Our creative featured designers have two great projects this month. Knit designer Sara Lucas created a great cold-weather layering piece with the Stolen Sleeves poncho fusion.

 


Crochet designer Beth Major went big with the Entwined Cable Scarf featuring chunky twisting cables.
