Wullenstudio Sock Yarns & Coppatina

| Monday, September 10, 2012


Present.....Christmas ideas and goodies for knitters of all kinds!

 Just take a minute to think...have you even thought about the idea of Holiday/Christmas and what you will be knitting, giving or even asking for?  I hope that with this review I will be able to shed some light on all of those questions.

A Note from the Designer herself~
"Wüllenstudio is a six year old company founded out of the love of fine hand-dyed yarns. I have been dyeing my own yarns for knitting and weaving since 1991.

Often the colors I wanted were not available. Whether it was a certain shade or a progression of one color, I wanted it and the only way to get it was to make it myself. Soon my fellow knitters were asking for my colors as well, and the rest, as they say, is history.  I started naming my colors after old songs because there is always music playing in my studio and there is often a color combination that is suggested in a song to which I am listening.

Sometimes a color combination comes to me with no name . I just put it on my Ravelry site , "Sheila Rovelstad Designs" and let members of my group name the creation in a contest. The winner receives the first skein out of the dyepot in the mail!  I confess I make stitch markers to match whatever I am knitting! I love to knit my way around a needle and pass an elegant stitch marker from one needle point to the other with a smile and a sigh. Simple pleasures!  My love of stitch markers led me in the direction of working with sterling silver and copper.  Well, of course, I fell in love with metal work as well. Half my wool studio is now a metal working studio.

I also have another shop on Etsy called Coppatina. There you will find knitting treasures as well as shawl pins, amulets and metal yarn ball necklaces!"

Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree

This fun Christmas color combo comes complete with a coordinating heal and toe mini skein.  Who would not love a pair of these for Christmas morning!

Fingering / 4 ply
450 yards/100 grams
US 1 - 3 or 2.25 - 3.25mm
75% Merino/25% Nylon
She does not just have Christmas themed yarn, I challenge you to not find a themed yarn that you just fall in love with!!!! Take a look for your self in her shop.
Along with amazing Sock yarn, my favorite thing in the world to knit, she has a second talent that I want to recognize as well.

How original is this amazing copper work!  It is not every day that you can say that you not only know a copper smith, but that you actually own a piece of hand forged copper to adorn your shawls with.  Each is carefully crafted with care and pristine design to allow for a fantastic smoothness and finish.

Along with the Cooper creations, you have hand made Stitch markers that are equally as beautiful.

I want the "Looking Out My Back Door" teal sock yarn and the spiral shawl pin.

I love the silver threads and golden needles sock yarn and the hand forged copper cable needles

It would be Peter Pumpkinhead for me, that way they would be ready for fall. Any shawl pin would do for me, they are gorgeous!

I love the amulet necklaces & I really like the rocking around the christmas tree

I love Midnight at the Oasis colourway. But then again I love all the colours. I also really like the Hand Forged Copper Amethyst shawl pin. Very nice.
Thank you yet again for another great giveaway.

Well how could I not like the Georgia on My Mind since I live in Savannah. I also like the hand forged spiral shawl pin.

I would like the "I Fought the Law and the Law Won" (which is in honor of the inmates that she and a friend teach to knit because Sheila is a goddess) and the wavy shawl pin. Whoever gets her yarn is in for a treat because it washes up VERY soft and yummy!

{ Betsy } at: September 10, 2012 at 7:55 PM said...

I love the Rockin Around the Christmas Tree colorway. I also think her stick shawl pins are beautiful.

{ Knit Ma } at: September 11, 2012 at 6:16 AM said...

I like the monster mash. Looks like great yardage for the price!

I think the simple shawl pins are my favorite.

I love "Jimmy Cracked Corn" colorway and would really, really like a shawl pin.

{ weaver } at: September 11, 2012 at 2:01 PM said...

I love the Rockin round the Christmas Tree colorway, although they are all amazing. I also love the stick pins. Her work is beautiful.

{ Hind DP } at: September 11, 2012 at 2:35 PM said...

Love the names of her colors, my favorite is Desperado. I also liked the simple elegance of the spiral shawl pin.

I love the spiral shawl pin!

{ Diane Donald } at: September 11, 2012 at 4:00 PM said...

I forgot to mention the yarn color, I love the monochromatic sock yarn kit in black magic woman!

I like the "Aquarius" sock yarn. Very pretty! And the stitch markers with the copper holders are beautiful.

{ B } at: September 12, 2012 at 5:01 PM said...

Sorry, I didn't comprehend the question right the first time, my favourite colourway is the "Look out my back door" (swooon) and my favourite copper item HAS to be that curved/spiral at the end shawl pin!

stephanie drury at: September 13, 2012 at 5:10 PM said...! I loved the Copper and Amethyst Double Pronged shawl pin sooo much that well, I bought it LOL!! But my husband's favorite socks ever are the ones I knit from a hank of 'Paint it Black'. So I guess that's OUR favorite ;)

{ wooliegirl } at: September 13, 2012 at 5:23 PM said...

Jimmy Cracked Corn and Rockin Around the Christmas Tree please, don't make me pick just one! They both scream holidays :)
I also love the hand forged copper shawl pin for any shawl pattern.

{ neilsnana } at: September 13, 2012 at 6:12 PM said...

I love the tequilla colorway and the copper stitchmarkers!!!

{ JStockert (~Julia) } at: September 17, 2012 at 4:36 AM said...

My favoite in the yarn category is the Wüllenstudio "And A Pink Carnation" Sock Yarn, and I love the spiral pin in the copper metal :)
