No, that isn’t an overly dramatic blog post title – it’s actually the name of this yarn!
Bergere Magic (yes, if you follow the links you’ll notice that the Bergere website is in French, but I’m amazed how much of it still makes sense) is a 50/50 wool/acrylic blend. It’s machine washable and dryable and knits up at 4 stitch per inch. It’s a wonderful yarn and a good price at $9.25 a 50g/80m ball.
The sweater pattern we have to go with this yarn, though, is beyond wonderful and into the realm of absolutely out of this world.
The “Trapeze Swing Jacket” uses between 10 and 13 balls of Magic, depending on size. It has great details, a stylish fit and seems to flatter everyone who tries it on. The acrylic keeps the bell sleeves and flared body light and flow-y, whereas all wool could get pendulous in the same style.
We currently have 10 colors of Bergere Magic with one more on the way. We’d love to have you stop by to check out this new yarn and try on the model. Several folks have already fallen madly in love at first sight!
