I love Bryson's "kid 'n' ewe" yarn. Unfortunately, it is going the way of Mission Falls 1824 wool & cotton (don't get me started--boohoo). It's being discontinued. Says so on the Bryson site.
I love it best for its felting qualities, like in this pair. It makes a tight, sturdy felted fabric with a boucle effect. It felts fast and shapes well. Should I go on? Maybe not, since we must mourn the loss of her--sweet kid 'n' ewe!
I have to admit to its being just a little itchy when knitted up into things like these two:
Yep, same pattern in two colors. I did secure a small amount for future use. I have enough lovely blue to design a felted vest. Wish me luck. I have never tried a felted garment--only hats , bags & slippers. Get out the calculator and cozy up to the math! (Not my nature, but I'll do anything for knitting!)
Let me hear from others of you who loved this yarn and what you did with it. Will you miss it? What will you replace it with?
And I leave you with a small Gaelic lesson...
Madainn mhath! (mah-teeyn vah)
Happy Wednesday and everyone have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
