Penguin Soup

Well readers...we have a *Special Review*
I decided to do an end of the week review that has a Give Away for your all!!! 
I have the pleasure of reviewing a Fantastic New yarn company and dyer.  Ginny  is the owner, dyer, crafter and "color blending specialist" behind Penguin Soup.  A knitter and crocheter herself, Ginny has really jumped in head first into her new dying passion.
As far as what inspires her work;
"EVERYTHING! The world around me.  I'll notice something in nature or in a store and I'll be attracted to its color scheme.  Next I play with those colors and find a way to dye it so that it speaks to me.  I especially love the challenge of dying colorways inspired by the shows I watch and the books I love to read.  Its fun to try to find colors that emulate the character, scene or place."
 Readers, I have for you;

Tuxedo Glitz


Fingering / 4 ply
430 yards/100 grams
75% Merino/20% Nylon/5% Other


Lets first start with the base its self.  So squishy and soft with the right amount of bounce to the yarn.  Her choice of color "Despicable" is a rich deep purple with tonal variations and a hint of black.  The
5% Stellina gives this purple a real pop!  As you turn the yarn over in your hands and work with it, you really see the complement of the silver sparkle come out.  This yarn would make a fantastic pair of socks, mittens or a stunning cowl.  I would recommend this being knit up into the
Willow Cowl by Amelia Lyon.

Penguin Soup also offers several other yarns and bases that are all customizable.  Don't see the color in the base that you want?  That can easily be arranged by doing a custom order. 

Another fantastic consumer point of interest is the way she displays her contact information on her ball bands.  Take a look, she has every possible way to contact or find her including the convenience of a smart phone scan code.  Smart thinking lady!!!

Be sure to check out all of her yarn bases and fantastic color themes!

Lets not forget that besides fantastic yarn, Penguin Soup gets up close and personal with Ginny as she hosts a weekly podcast.  So much fun and fiber all at once.  Be sure to check out an episode on her podcast. Found Here

Thank you again to Ginny for such a fantastic review of her yarn!!
So why not treat yourself to a fun skein of Penguin Soup yarn today.
