Shawl Balls, first released in 2016, have rapidly grown to become our most popular yarn. Now we've expanded on that idea and created a super-sized option.
At just shy of a 1/2 mile of dreamy soft, cruelty-free, US Merino fingering weight yarn, these 7 ounce, 860 yard balls will keep you in stitches for a very long time. We slowed down and further softened the color changes to make them even smoother and more subtle.
We have here for you now a pre-release of the Yarn Bombs - with limited color and quantities available until we can get caught up with demand. If you see a color you like, don't wait! This yarn is perfect for Shifting Sands, Radiance and Medialuna. We will also have more patterns coming along with more colors as we get them dyed!
Two new designs by two talented designers join the lineup this Fall.
We love the simplicity of using a gradient yarn for the yoke of a cardigan or sweater. As seen above, Lars Rains has combined Vintage and Amaranth in his signature Lopi style for the Gullmarn Pullover
Also this season Holli Yeoh designed a gorgeous yoked cardigan which mimics a lovely stained glass motif, you can find the Cloisonné Cardigan here.
Even bigger balls
As we broaden our pattern offerings we find that we like to pair coordinating or contrasting solids with the gradient colors. Since the semi-solids are now playing more than just a cameo role in our designs we upped the size and lowered the price of our semi-solids. The 50g balls are still available if you just need a small amount, but if you need a sweater's worth, dive in to the 100g balls in Worsted, Sport and our Shawl Balls and save a penny or two.
