Sharon just made up a couple of skeins for her Pazzo Collection Yarn to take to a Metchosin knitters group on Tuesday. Pazzo is Italian for crazy! And these wild skeins are crazy indeed. The inspiration came from Saturday’s visit to St. Peter’s Anglican Church in Duncan for the Tzouhalem Spinners and Weavers Guild annual Distaff Day where Sharon found she’d piqued a lot of interest and enthusiasm in playful, wonky yarns with the spinners.
This yarn is a blend of wool, hand spun wool, alpaca, mohair, hand dyed silk ribbon and silk yarn, angora and nylon. The skeins are made up of the various yarn sections tied together by hand with colours, sizes and textures alternating to give a truly chaotic and unique yarn. It’s perfect for creating a stunning, freeform knitted scarf, vest, shawl, cowl or whatever wild piece you can imagine.
