yoth yarnI swooned when I opened the package and cuddled the yarn.

I’m a sucker for natural &/or neutral colors.  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.  The brown is Portabella.  There are a slew of other colors in the Raw Palette line — I think you could do some lovely subtle multi-shaded stranded colorwork.  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 gifting me these skeins.  Please note all the above opinions are my own.
