Based in Maine, Stone Wool is known for beautiful breed specific yarns that are sourced, spun & dyed in the United States. The richly hued yarns are made in small batches & each yarn is designed to showcase the unique characteristics of each sheep breed. Garments & accessories knit with Stone Wool are heritage pieces that can be passed down through generations. Each skein feels like a connection to the earth & the deep heritage of knitting.
The patterns for Stone Wool are as stunning as the yarn. All 5 of the Stone Wool yarns have wonderful stitch definition & lend themselves to cables, textured stitches & colorwork.
The Ishii Cardigan is a comfy, cozy, textured cardigan that will become an everyday favorite piece...and it has pockets!!! The Ishii is knit with Stone Wool Corriedale, an Aran weight yarn spun from 100% Corriedale wool, which is a cross breed of fine wool Merino & longwool Lincoln sheep.
The Luzerne Hat is a simple, yet beautiful colorwork hat inspired by gently swaying fields of long grasses. The hat is knit in Stone Wool Cormo, a springy worsted weight yarn that blooms beautifully when blocked. Spun from 100% Cormo wool sourced from Wyoming & Montana, this yarn is spun with a unique process that marries the airy loft of a woolen spun yarn with the strength of a worsted spun yarn.
The Nixa Pullover is a colorwork round yoke pullover that is a classic, yet modern piece for every wardrobe. The Nixa is knit with Stone Wool Cormo, a wonderful choice for colorwork projects.
Finally, the Ural Shawl is a wonderful all season wrap knit in Stone Wool Romney + Merino. The beauty of the wool really shines through in each skein of this heritage wool.
