When the mercury rises, it is wonderful to crochet or knit with lighter yarn or wool. It is nice when projects are airy during hot days or provide just enough heat when the evenings are cooler. Struggling with a choice? We have some gems for you that fall under the heading "forgotten summer yarns". Some yarns are perhaps less known to the general public. Such a shame, because they certainly deserve a place in the spotlight. Read on to find out why.
5 forgotten summer yarns
So much to choose from...
The finest baby clothes are made with Phildar Poesie. This skein of 80% cotton and 20% acrylic makes the cutest rompers and tiny pants. Take a look at the available colours of this summer yarn. Because of the different thicknesses in the wire, each project gets an unique embossing.
Lana Grossa Vero
Have you seen the beautiful colours of Lana Grossa Vero already? This yarn is also super soft due to the combination of cotton and silk. Ideal for a luxurious-looking cardigan or a light summer dress.
Katia Lino 100%
Linen is a very suitable material for the summer, so make your clothes with Katia Lino 100%. This yarn is made from 100% linen and is available in beautiful muted colours.
