    Sample text

    Sample knit in Dunluce (57% Cotton, 38% Rayon, 5% Linen) Color: Natural This intricate design starts in the center and works outward, building from just eight cast-on stitches to a final round containing 520 stitches. Its airy beauty is created by a complex lace pattern knit in the round and then bound off using a special technique that allows for abundant elasticity. The cotton blend chosen for the project gives the piece a lightness and flexibility that accentuates the open pattern of the lace.

    Sometimes a blend of the two materials maximizes the advantages of each. For example, a sock yarn made of a 92% wool and 8% nylon blend provides the warmth and comfort of natural wool with the added strength and resilience of synthetic fiber. The way in which the yarn’s fibers are spun together determines its structure. There are a variety of different yarn structures: Spiral: A thinner yarn twisted around a thicker yarn. Chenille: A velvety pile, wrapped with two thin, twisted threads. Can be either long-pile or short-pile.
