We adore Jill Draper’s custom-made, US-grown yarns that she dyes by hand in her Hudson Valley studio. We’ve carried Jill’s yarns in the Shop from early days, and have been knitting with them for even longer.
Windham is a worsted-weight merino with a light hand and color that shifts in that lovely way that hand-dyed yarns do. The 4-ply construction adds strength and durability to the fine Merino fibers, and it’s soft enough for any picky wool wearers that you knit for.
Windham is the yarn of choice for Thea Colman’s Appleseed Mitts and Appleseed Coasters in Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide No. 8: Merry Making. We agree with Jill, though, that it’s hard to think of a worsted-weight project that Windham would not be good for!
Please note: patterns not included. The Appleseed Mitts and Coaster patterns both appear in Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide No. 8: Merry Making, available in both digital and print editions. Be sure to add a copy of Field Guide No. 8 to your cart at checkout!
