May’s Monthly Yarn Sale is Swish!

Swish is pretty much the perfect yarn: it’s soft, it’s warm, it’s machine washable, and it comes in a variety of weights and lots of colors … what more could you want?! DK, worsted, and bulky weight Swish yarns are all 100% Fine Superwash Merino Wool (plus there’s a fingering weight version in Bare if you want to dye your own!).

Swish yarn colors in a grid

DK and worsted weights have LOTS of colors, and our newest bulky weight comes in a beautiful array of jewel tones.

Swish Bulky and Worsted

Want to see some soft & cozy items knit up in Swish yarns? I’ll start with the DK weight…

And lastly, a couple of Swish Bulky knits! The Seed Stitch Cowl and Hood by Jessica Zoz is a free pattern, and a fun, easy knit! Our merchandise planner Alexis knit up a TON of these over the holidays!

Winter Dreamer Hat

And the cables on the Winter Dreamer Hat by Kalurah Hudson really pop in the Swish.

Swish skeins in a circle

Of course, you can choose Swish for other patterns that call for DK, worsted, or bulky weight yarn, if you think the soft, warm, superwash qualities of Swish would be a good fit. Happy knitting!
