Okay, anyone who knows me knows that it is killing me, right now, to spell colour without a “u” but Lang Jawoll Color fingering weight yarn is spelled that way so suck it up Betty-Anne.
Despite the spelling, I absolutely LOVE this yarn. It is fun and fresh. Each of the patterns are different but my personal favourites are the fair isle patterns. They make knitting socks easy and even more portable, because you don’t need to carry a pattern. Or try to memorize it. The pattern in the yarn does all the work and all we have to do is knit for it to appear.
This fingering weight yarn comes in 100 g balls with 420 m and is 75% virgin wool and 25% nylon. The recommended needle size is 2.5 mm – 3.5 mm with a gauge of 30 stitches and 41 rows for a 4″ swatch.
This yarn makes great socks but it is also awesome for baby clothes.
Check out this Elizabeth Zimmerman Baby Surprise Jacket that I made up with the Jawoll. (right)
In addition you can use it to makes scarves like the Zick Zack scarf that I made with two contrasting colours of Jawoll. (left)
But if you want to make socks then knock yourself out and be happy. Some people are harder on socks than others so Jawoll has a surprise for us. Inside you will find a little spool of yarn that can be used to double strand and reinforce the wear points on socks. For some that is the toes or the heal and for others it is the ball of the foot. No matter, Jawoll has us covered.
The fun never ends and is only restricted by your imagination so go crazy and come up with some great projects for this yarn. We can’t wait to see what you create.
