Juniper Moon Yarns

Patagonia

This newest yarn from Juniper Moon is 100% wool is organic and features 382 yards/sk.

Recommended knit at 5.5 - 6 sts/inch, it has a lovely hand and nice twist. I expect it will be a great sweater yarn as well as superb for hats and wristlets.

A great color range with nice pattern support . Although I want to knit a sweater from Ravelry (Vines and Arrows) with this yarn, I think for the sake of getting a sample out on the floor quickly, I will start with a hat or fingerless mitss!

I knit the swatch pictured below up using US 5, 6, 7 & 8, just to see! And I got exactly the range that the label says - from 5.5, 5.75, 5.75 and 6 stsinch!

You can tell if you click on the swatch to see a larger image that the 8 is more open than the rest and the US 5 is quite tight at the top of the swatch. I would probably use a US 5 for a hat or fingerless mitts and either a US 6 or 7 for a sweater. The two patterns pictured below are the two I'm trying to decide between for the store model. They both feature a bit of cabling - I think this yarn will show off the cables beautifully. I just can't decide if I want a hoodie cardigan or a pullover!

Anyway, the swatch was lovely to knit - and the customers who ahve been in since I put the swatch out by the yarn have been oohing and aahing it!

And what a value with 382 yards for just $14.99/sk!!
