Now taking the stage... Rock Star XL, our beautiful bulky-weight superwash merino base! Plump & springy and 100% made just for us in the USA, this awesome yarn is perfect for pretty much everything from thick, squishy hats and mittens to the warmest cardigans, & so much more! There's a whopping 100 yards in each 150g skein!
Our Rock Star line is made from merino that is, from sheep to skein, made in the USA – it’s a difference you can feel. Unlike wools processed overseas, this merino is processed in small batches with fewer, more tightly regulated chemicals. Not only is this better for the environment, but it results in yarns with more bounce and body. This in turns means finished projects have better stitch definition and garments will pill less and last longer. Even devotees of non-superwash wools have said that Rock Star rocks their world!
This colorway is called On The Road, inspired by the song by Keane. The last few photos here are a part of our Epic Swatching Project and there's also a photo of some socks I made out of this color on our Glamour yarn to give you an idea of how the color works up.
