We have another new yarn in the store. Fresco is an Italian linen-viscose blend, from Borgo DePazzi. It’s lightweight, has fantastic yardage, with a beautiful sheen, great drape, and just a bit of textural interest. We recommend a fairly loose gauge for light, airy summer garments & wraps, and the inexpensive price point makes it very suitable for larger garments. Nina has already worked up a sample scarf in silver-gray, but the possibilities are endless. Available in a range of solid and variegated colours.
If you are planning to attend the Yarn Tasting event on Saturday, Fresco will be one of the yarns we’ll be ‘tasting’.
