I took a trip to Romni’s on sunday to pet and rate the new yarns comming in for fall. And to get a gist of the color schemes being produced as I’m going to start some knit-for-profit hats/scarves this season. I pet and took notes till they kicked me out to close the store. I fell in love with so many, but three stood out for practical uses.
My ever growing love for this brand exploded when I saw the Rialto Aran in this color combination. It’s an extra-fine merino that is said to have a crisp stitch definition and drapes beautifully.

2. Jo Sharp Silk Road Aran: So incredibly soft. I’d knit a pillow case out of this it’s so damn soft. A mixture of silk and cashmere softens the 85% woolen base. it’s pallette is modern and has lots of darker colors- perhaps to break boyfriend sweater curse? I love the colorway names, very relaxing.
3. Miski Yarns – Miski I can see tons of hats being made out of this. The colors are so vibrant, in store. The teal blue practically screams look at me. It’s not the softest, but for hats it will do warmth wise. 100% Baby Lama
