Da Fazenda - Artisanal yarns

| Monday, August 26, 2013
 
Hello readers!  This week I have a yarn review that is from Brazil.   Fazenda Caixa Dágua is the man in charge of these brilliantly crafted yarns. 
 
His products are the result of research, development and customer feedback. They produce handspun yarn and artisanal hand dyed yarn using only natural dyes branded “Da Fazenda” and wool blankets for riding and scabs. All the material they use comes from there our own animals (Corriedale, Texel and Crioula sheeps) or from the neighbors (Merino and Ideal, as we call Polwarth here in South America). 100% Brazilian wool.
 
Using natural fibers is a sustainable, renewable and environmentally friendly attitude. They invite you to join the family of textile artists around the world.
 
 

Sock Superwash

 
Da Fazenda Sock Superwash is a super resistant and soft yarn, perfect to be used in socks, shawls, toys, baby clothes and accessories. Our yarn is made with pure Ideal wool - this is how Polwarth fiber produced in South America is called.
As all Da Fazenda’s products, our yarn is kettle-dyed, using only natural dyes.
100% Polwarth wool, from Brazil
 
 
416 yards/100 grams
Fingering Weight
100% Wool
 
You get all the benefits of a 100% wool sock and all the convenience of it being a superwash.  As shown above, the color saturation is very strong and lends to bold colors.  The brown tonal is a favorite of mine, showing different shades  of the same rich brown.  You will not find the toes and heels of your socks blowing out any time soon when you knit your favorite sock pattern with this yarn.  It is a delight to knit with and the results will leave you pleased.
 
 

 Merino Worsted

 103 yards/50 grams
Worsted Weight
100% Merino
 
 

This is true next-to-skin soft yarn.  Just the thought of this yarn knit up into  cowl or hat makes me feel warm at the thought.  To have the opportunity to knit this into a sweater, now we are talking comfort and the feel you get on a rainy day at the beach with a mug of tea.

My favorite color sock yarn of Da Fazenda is color 213. I love anything that is lavender or purple and this color is just beautiful!
