Daruma Falkland

We have this gorgeous new yarn from Daruma, and we were surprised to realize this is the first Falkland yarn we have had in the shop.
The Falkland Islands are located in the South Atlantic Ocean, and this yarn from the islands is soft and quite substantial. It is absolutely ideal for cables and textures stitches. I poked around Ravelry and was blown away by some of the projects using this yarn. Take a peek at this cabled beauty.

This cardigan is really amazing, too.

Sally is using a few shades to knit up the June Hat from Kelbourne Woolens' A Year of Hats. It is knitting up into a soft and luxurious fabric.
If you love a natural wool with a lot of body and oomph, you might really love this new yarn from the Falkland Islands!
