Introducing: Paragon Yarn

New yarn launch days are my favorite: it’s when we get to finally share all of the wonderfully new yarn love that we’ve been secretly swooning over for the past few months. And this yarn is no exception, Paragon is a sport weight yarn and it’s the holy trinity of yarn for me – it has a little bit of everything that I love in a yarn.

First – it’s got 50% Mmmmerino, which adds that distinctive bounce and squish that I can’t get enough of in a yarn. Secondly – there’s 25% Baby Alpaca, which adds a softness and an extra dose of warmth. And the last 25% of Paragon is made up of luxurious silk, which is what adds that incredible sheen.

Several of us have already started (and finished!) projects in Paragon – all of which look and feel amazing. Alison knit up an adorable sweater for her son and Hannah is working her way through the Fall Day Vest from our Twist and Tweed pattern collection. I just adore how Paragon looks in cabled patterns, the silk reflects the light beautifully to highlight the textured stitches. Plus the twist of Paragon gives lace, cables and textures a crisp finish.
