December 18: le Cœur Yarns

Earlier this fall we launched our own line of hand painted yarns. We’ve been in such a whirl, that I’ve barely had time to tell you more.
Currently the line contains three luscious yarns:


snug
Snug
This snuggly blend of alpaca and merino knits at a worsted gauge, and is dyed in both color blocked and nearly solid shades.
Snug/BeachSnug/DaffodilSnug/Gypsy


cheeky
Cheeky
A lightly textured wool/mohair blend, presented in blended and nearly solid shades and works at a heavy worsted gauge.
Cheeky/PlumSpiceCheeky/FuchsiaCheeky/Rio


Big
Big
Superwash bulky merino, uniquely spray dyed for a fabulous layered effect.
Big/MuffyBig/SunshineBig/Breezy


You can now peruse the different shades of each yarn online! 
What makes these yarns unique is the hand application of color to each skein, which is quite an arduous process. The colors are carefully applied for maximum effect.
There are also some great patterns to accompany these yarns, with more in the works!

    I purchased the Big in “Pinky” to knit a gift scarf. It knits beautifully and feels wonderful. Now I would like to try Cheeky. The yellow and blue is a perfect color combo for me, as yellow is my favorite color.

    Well…I thought I commented before, but I must have navigated off the page before posting! Lol. The cheeky seagreen is a nice shade and the sandstone and charcoal are great shades too. The sunshine Big is a great gold. The Snug sari and gypsy are great and the fire/wine/navy too. Hard to just choose three, so many great colors!

    I’m currently knitting the “Fanny” shawl with Cheeky in plum spice and eggplant. I’d love to try Snug in beach with the aqua or teal. Big in breeze looks really nice too. Thank you Keely for the 24-Days of SWAK.

    I’m liking coastal & beach in the cheeky. After seeing & getting my feet wet in the Pacific Ocean (South of San Francisco) for the first time earlier this year, I’ve been attracted to the soothing cool color combinations. I’m taking it as a sign I need a beach vacation!

    I love the cobalt in Cheeky, but what I want is the charcoal and electric in Snug for making your shawl!
