Julie Asselin ~ Hand Dyed Yarn

| Sunday, April 7, 2013
After a long awaited time, I am so pleased to be sharing with you all some "Spring Yarns." 
Julie Asselin is a Designer and a Yarn Dyer.  She has a unique eye for color and really has a way of bringing it to her medium, Yarn!  She lives in beautiful Quebec Canada and is a knitter as well and can be founder on her facebook.
The yarn that I am going to be reviewing for you all today is her
Fingering / 4 ply (14 wpi)
400 yards/115 grams
70% Merino
20% Cashmere
10% Nylon
This brightly toned color is called 'Poppy Love' how fitting is that name.  I love how Julie can have a solid colored yarn but still manage to show off darker and lighter tones in her coloring, very tonal like.  The twist and loft to this yarn almost make me want to call it a heavy fingering weight.  You could do so much with this amazing yarn, you just need to get your hands on it.  A beautiful Spring Shawl comes to mind when I see this color.  How can you not want to embrace yourself it its refreshing color!!
 I would recommend this yarn to everyone!!!
Thank you again to Julie for a Such an amazing line of yarn!

This is a beautiful color but I saw some merino/nylon blend in her shop called "Teal we meet again" which is less flashy, but also very tonal. She has some really pretty shades. Glad you've introduced her here.
