New Yarn: Cestari Monticello

March 10, 2017

New for Spring a beautiful linen cotton blend from one of our favourite farm to needle suppliers: Cestari Sheep and Wool Company.
 And 18 colours to choose from! 

This 3-ply DK weight yarn is kettle dyed which gives each colour a depth and tone similar to an artisan hand dyed.
  

Cestari is a small family owned and operated farm with an amazing story and values; read more about Frances and his vision here. I had a chance to meet Frances am thrilled to be able to bring his quality yarns to our community while strengthening the fibre agriculture one stitch at a time.

As a plus, it also happens to knit up beautifully!
  

And to continue the family theme, a big kudos to my own mama who knit up this gorgeous piece and begrudgingly allowed me to photograph her! Thanks to the amazing woman in my life.

      I am not sure. We sell Montecello so I haven’t looked for an alternate. Best of luck!
