My craft room is filled to overflowing. Along with the
sewing machine and a couple boxes of fabric, I have filled every inch of wall
space with bins and containers of yarn. Why do I need that much yarn? A wide
variety of yarn constructions are available, from singles which consist of a
single strand of generally loosely spun fiber to tightly spun yarns consisting
of multiple strands. Each yarn creates a very different fabric.
The simple lace repeat pattern of the Aspen Infinity Cowl pattern
by Linda Permann is made extra special by the yarn choice. This elegant cowl is
crocheted with Tranquility by TSC ARtyarns. A luxurious blend of finely-milled
fibers from Italy, one strand of Merino Wool and a second strand of blended
cashmere/silk/merino, are gently twisted to create a softly-brushed,
The first strand is gently brushed to create loft and a
soft texture. The second strand is spun with a classic ply to create a uniquely
contrasted yarn. Each strand is also dyed separately before being combined. The
difference in twist means that each strand will take the dye slightly
differently. Each 400 yard skein of Tranquility is handpainted by fiber artist
