Below, we’ve played around with quite a few different yarns from Trendsetter Yarns
At left, Orchidea (42% cotton/ 42% acrylic/16% nylon) ribbon, color 610(pink/blue/green/gold/yellow). The short color changes, along with the matte and shiny sections, make a fun, plaid-like square with a lovely drape for a scarf or cowl. At top center, Ascot (100% superwash wool), color 17 (rust), bulky weight, is soft and soothing with subtle color changes. We can imagine this yarn used to make a warm, lightweight, washable baby blanket. At right, Ascot and Dune (45% mohair/24% acrylic/20% viscose/6% new wool/4% polyester) are used together makes a dressy, soft square that would be wonderful for evening accessories needing a bit of glitz. We like the lively combination of texture and color.
Kid Chic (75% kid mohair/16% silk/9% poly), color 2 (off white) lace weight, woven with Illusion, (53% wool/47% acrylic), color 950, both also from Trendsetter. We love the depth of texture achieved with this combination of yarns.
Phoenix, (66% Viscose/34% Cotton), color 935, another yarn from Trendsetter, is fun to weave for it’s combination of matte and shiny contrasts, forming a plaid when woven. Again, ribbon yarn makes a square with beautiful drape.
