Sunspun Fine Yarns

New Isager yarns and patterns

Leave a comment

We just received a shipment from Denmark with some very beautiful new Isager yarns and patterns!  Just in time for our warm months, we hope that they will inspire and encourage our local knitters to get knitting light-weight garments…

First up, we have Bomulin, a lightweight 4ply blend made up of 75% cotton and 25% linen that is spun and dyed in Italy, has 210m/ 50gm and comes in twelve rich colours. Bomulin is ideal for summer tanks, tees and jumpers, as well as lace, lightweight throws and holding with other Isager yarns for heavier-gauge knits.

Along the same lines is Hor, a pure linen, lightweight 4ply that is also spun and dyed in Italy, has 160m/ 50gm and comes in natural, gunmetal blue-grey and black. Hor is ideal for soft furnishings and bags but also works beautifully for summer garments and held with other yarns.

Our third new Isager yarn is Palet, a fun, speckly tape yarn from Italy that has 160m/ 50gm and knits to a 4-8ply tension, depending on needle size and stitch pattern. Perfect for summer tops, we’d love to see a tee in this- think Japanese style and Julie Hoover designs such as Marly and Leigh

And our final new yarn is Jensen, a sturdy yet soft 100% wool yarn that works equally well as a 6 or 8ply, has 250m/ 100gm and comes in 15 soft colours dyed over a grey yarn base, giving them a beautiful, heathered texture. Jensen is ideal for lightweight but warm garments, as well as accessories and blankets.

And, lastly, we have the brand-new Isager pattern book, the Map Collection! Isager is known for their incredibly beautiful, simple designs and wonderful work with colour and this collection definitely follows that tradition… It’s full of very wearable, stylish women’s garments and accessories that are mostly knitted using two strands of yarn, which adds not only warmth and texture but also a great depth of colour.

We have quite a few favourites already…
