Hello Readers.  I am so happy to be back to share with you yet another fantastic Yarn!  I am sure you all have seen this yarn used or have heard the name a few times before, The Uncommon Thread.
 
"I started The Uncommon Thread in September 2010 after knitting for a few years, then discovering Ravelry and becoming thoroughly addicted – particularly with knitting with luxury hand-dyed yarns. I love colours, texture and I’m passionate about knitting.
We are an artisan company and dye all our yarns lovingly by hand in our studio in Brighton, England. Although still relatively small, we are constantly expanding in order to keep up with the demand for our products.
I aim to source a few unusual, British breed yarns that are often limited editions. These are spun in small mills from small flocks and are very special. But here you’ll also find luxury fibres, such as cashmere, silk, alpaca and merino for your knitting pleasure.
I am very passionate about the environment and aim to minimise the impact I have on it. I simmer the yarns for a long time so that as much dye as possible can bond with the fibres, rather than going down the drain. Our mailing bags are 100% biodegradable and our tags made from 100% post consumer waste – not only that, they are beautiful too! Our British breeds yarns are spun locally, so have few ‘wool miles’ and some are even spun in a mill partly powered by water."

Approx 100g superwash merino yarn
300m per 100g – sport weight
 
Lovely and round superwash merino yarn. Perfect for all kinds of stuff. Super bouncy!
Although I recommend hand-washing to prolong the life of your knits, this yarn may be machine washed on a gentle wool cycle, then laid flat to dry.
 
 
She has such a large color range you are sure to find exactly what you are looking for.  This is the perfect yarn for its own project or to be knit up together with another contrasting yarns to show off a pattern or just a good looking stripe.  The twist on the yarn is so bouncy and has a great hand while being knit up.  I am really enjoying it.

 
The great part about The Uncommon Thread is that you have every color and weight of yarn right at your finger tips.  All you have to do is just go the her extremely user friendly website and start shopping!!!  You will be swimming in ideas of what you can do with her amazing yarns.

so funny because my hubby and I were talking about this last night. I am drawn to fingering weights for the simple fact that they are so multifunctional. I am a lover of Fall colors deep jewel tones and deep gold colors like fresh farm honey
