When you combine world-renowned colorist Kaffe Fassett and 100% soft-to-handle lambswool in an easy to knit & crochet chunky-weight yarn the final product is “Colourscape Chunky” yarn by Rowan. Each color combination is stunning and literally calls out to me from the shelf, please knit me into a chunky weight cardigan, which is what I am doing. Maybe someday I will finish a project, now that would be exciting.
Back to the yarn, it has single long repeats of rainbow like colors intermixed with tweedy effects in a Shetland-like twist, “Colourscape Chunky” is so much more than just an auto-striping yarn option. From deep mysterious purples, maroons & turquoise to soft, dusty pastels, Kaffe has developed his palette to be truly inspirational and has added many hands-on details to the process. Each hank contains 175 yards of senstionally crafted 100% lambswool for $23.95. -B
