Yarn winding 500g

122.00

For all knitters, you can get custom windings in any colors you wish, just send me a note and let me know what you like. The result is always full of surprises. From Catherine Bayar who uses my yarn to knit beautiful lacy shawls and sweaters: “May I just say that knitting with your yarn mix is so much fun, I’m forcing myself to go to bed, but I’d rather be seeing where the colors will lead next!”
You will get two windings totalling 500 grams, a bit more than you will need and a printed pattern with written instructions as well as drawings for hand knitting a Throw Blanket / Cafe Wrap.

Browse my color library at http://wrapturebyinese.bigcartel.com/color-library or browse my knits here and let me know the name of the wrap in the colors you like.

 

I use 5 to 15 strands of thin yarns, two kid mohair, one or two silk, and the rest is cotton. I switch colors and tie knots every few rows. This is how I get my color blends, and it actually takes me just as long to make a winding as it does to machine knit a wrap. There are lots of color changes and knots. The last trip to Istanbul I bought an electric yarn winder to give my wrists a bit of a break from my hand winder. I am still getting used to the tension, so here and there you may get one thread that does a loop. I usually ignore them and just knit them in as I go. I am winding twice to give the yarns a bit of a twist, and to help with the tension.

I go to Istanbul a few times a year and purchase kilos of kid mohair yarn. I buy by touch, only the softest and best colors. I then add silk threads and cotton yarns that I get right here in Rīga, Latvia. They are hauled by truck from Italy a few times a year. ALL the yarns I use are upcycled, recycled, basically excess stock, off dye lots, a bit thicker or thinner.
