The winner of the Shelburne Mittens kit is comment number 1125, Lisa S!
Thank you to the lovely folks at Rowan Yarn and Westminster Fibers for donating this prize.
Now for some spinning. As requested, the marled yarns knit into swatches.
First the blue and white:
3 weights of marling -yarn
3 weights of marling - knit
Like the yarn, the fatter the original yarn the marl in the knitted fabric is more pronounced.
In the finest sample it looks like flecks.
How about the blue and green yarn:
3 weights of blue/green marl
3 weights blue/green marl - knit
I wish I had spun larger samples of these, but I do like how the colors blend even more when the yarn is knit. There is striping and pooling, but it’s interesting to me.
Thank you for asking me to knit my samples, I like the marl more as knit fabric than just yarn. Time for more experiments!
