Happy Monday 'Readers.'  We have a fantastic yarn review this week and it comes to us all the way from Zürich, Switzerland.  I must say that as much as the Swiss are known for some amazing chocolate, they need to also add to the list, amazing silk yarns!!!
Our dyer Jana has some spectacular yarns to share with us today.
Besides the fact that Jana is just as adorable as could be, I have to tell you her yarns are a stand alone and you all need to make sure you take a look at her hand dyed yarn line.
"I am addicted to yarn. I love all shades of colour. That is the reason why I opened an online shop for yarn and fibre. I can touch and watch them every day.
I also offer my own yarn brand. I purchase the yarn from a Swiss spinning mill and dye the beautiful silk yarns by my own.
In my other live I am a IT Project manager in a hospital, wife and mother of a girl."


Light Fingering/ 3 ply
218 yards/ 50 g
US 2½ - 6 or 3 - 4mm
65% Swiss Silk / 35% Camel
I am so blown away with how touch ably soft this yarn is!  The Swiss silk gives the yarn its strength and the baby camel is just as soft as it sounds.  These yarns are every so slightly tonal with just a hint of color variation.  It really gives the yarn such a rich look when you have the skein in your hand.
You could really knit anything and everything with this yarn.  So soft and so warm, I think I would do a color work hat to show off the fantastic dye job. 



Sport / 5 ply
  328 yards/ 100 g
 US 2½ - 6 or 3 - 4mm
 51% Silk/ 29% Merino /20% Microfiber
Her sport weight yarn is just as stunning.  Everyone should have a skein or two of this in stash for sure.  A cowl, shawl, hat and if you just so lucky, a sweater!  How wonderful that would be.

I love how she had almost hidden little pops of yellow in the shades of the first skein.

With such luscious yarns, it has to be a shawl. Although they're different weights I think I would use them together to make a striped one.
