The Little Knitting Company

| Monday, August 13, 2012
I am thrilled to talk to you all and share about a fantastic company.  The Little Knitting Company has all of you wants and needs; from yarn, needles, bags and more.  Click on over the the shop and take a look for your self.  I was more than happy to be able to feature a yarn review.  The yarn that I am going to be reviewing is called: Amorini

This is a fantastic blend that consists of,
- 80% cotton make 20% cashmere
Length: 250m
Unit Weight: 100g skein
WPI: 17
Yarn Weight: 4-ply / Fingering
Tension: 24 stitches and 36 rows over 10cm (4 in)
Needles: 3-3.5mm (US 2-3)
Wash Care: Hand Wash

I have to say that I have never really considered the paring of cotton and cashmere, however after holding this skein in my hand and getting a good feel for the yarn, it is a great combination.  It will stand up to wear and tare but has a much softer feeling having a cashmere blend. 

I could see this knit up into a great pair of work gloves.  How fun would garden gloves be.

Thank you again to The Little Knitting Co for a great yarn!

What an interesting combination! I think I would also like to try the "ande" base

I would try "Pleasure", I like the blend of wool and cashmere, and I love the name

I would probably try Pleasure first but wow, they are a big store!

Wow that is a lot to choose from. I think I'd actually really like to try the Amorini. I want to like cotton and this seems like a great gateway drug.

LoveLoveLove the Amorini you reviewed! I looked about, and they have a bunch, but cotton cashmere just sings to me!!!

Cotton and cashmere together, I'm intrigued! I'd like to try the Amorini.

Interesting yarn. I like the Lino 100, thinking it would be light and airy to work with.
