I swooned when I opened the package and cuddled the yarn.
I’m a sucker for natural &/or neutral colors. Â And who doesn’t love an MCN blend?
Ve of Yarn on the House sent me two skeins of her delightful, decadent Little Brother, a softly twisted 80/10/10 Superwash Merino/Cashmere/Nylon blend fingering weight yarn. Big Sister is the, um, sister yarn, a DK weight, same blend. Do check out the yarn page and the colors — each color has a lovely mood pic of a ball of yarn & its inspiration (many of which may make you hungry!), a comparison of the two different weights of yarn, and a swatch.
The skein on the right is Hazelnut — the color is much richer and warmer in person than in my pic. Â The brown is Portabella. Â There are a slew of other colors in the Raw Palette line — I think you could do some lovely subtle multi-shaded stranded colorwork. Â As it is, I’m thinking a classic colorwork hat for these two skeins — something elegant to suit the yarn.

Thank you again, Ve, for giftingÂ me these skeins. Â Please note all the above opinions are my own.
