Ushya = soft

We’ve got a new yarn this Fall that we have fallen head-over-heels for: Mirasol’s Ushya. It’s this fantastically fat, soft, lofty, light fiber that is squishy and warm and just plain lovely. It’s a blend of 98% Merino Wool and 2% Nylon, and instead of being plied, it’s cabled, which allows it to be light as air. Ushya‘s gauge is 2-2.5 stitches per inch, and for $18, you get a whopping 114 yards (100 grams).

I’ve also designed a super-quick and easy cowl to use just one skein of this – the perfect last-minute gift this holiday season, and the pattern is free with purchase of the yarn. It’s called the Springy Sproingy Cowl, and it really really is.
