You know the only thing I love as much as working with an old favorite yarn is working with a new delicious yarn. I'll give you two guesses what I have been doing... that's right I found a new delicious yarn, Tatamy from Kraemer Yarns. You are going to want to set your needles down and listen to me rave about this yummy yarn.
I have worked with both cotton and acrylic, and a myriad of various blend with each, but I don't think I have ever felt a cotton blend that was as soft and beautiful to work with as Tatamy. This is a DK weight, 45/cotton - 55/acrylic blend from Kraemer Yarns. As soon as I gave it the squeeze test I knew a shawl project was born. I love a soft shawl. I worked in Pearl and Navy, which when combined gave a lovely nautical look, as you can see.
What I really want to stress is how nice this was to work with. As I mentioned it was very soft, and it didn't leave the little yarn trail line on my guiding finger as cotton blends often do. The yarn glides effortlessly on the needles and I didn't have any splitting issues. There were no knots, and no uneven sections. It has been a joy to work with. You can see from the work in progress, which is unblocked and still on needles that the stitches are even and the lay is gorgeous! I can't wait to see how it blocks out. It is going to be stunning.
Tatamy DK is available in 8 pastels, and 16 Tatamy Tweed colors as solids. While you are on their website make sure you browse all of the quality yarns available and stay connected on Facebook and Ravelry so you never miss a new shade, blend or special.
