Pretty Fiber Day: Luxury Edition

Ever since i felt the awesomeness that is the MCN base for myself, i've been seeking to acquire more. a raveler was destashing a bunch of yarns, and i was happy to take them off her hands.
Hedgehog Fibres Merino/Cashmere
this is hedgehog fibres merino/cashmere in Fairy. I'm already knitting this into a pair of socks for my mother. the colors look even prettier knit up. it has a higher percentage of cashmere, no nylon, and it's somewhat more loosely plied than some of the other yarns. it probably won't wear very well, but it's pretty soft and the colors glow, so who cares?
Fiberphile Merino/Cashmere/Nylon
This one if Fiberphile Eclipse Cashmere Merino Sock in Dark Amethyst. i love the deep purples. the skein arrived pilling just a bit. this one seems most similar to the juliespins mcn, but it's a 3ply. i'm aiming more towards a non-sock project with this one right now, but we'll see.
Wollmeise 100% superwash merino
and finally, wollmeise sockenwolle 100% superwash in limone. my best friend used to have a car this exact shade and it's just calling out to be knitted into a shawl for her xmas gift. i think i will knit ishbel unless i change my mind.


  1. I'm using a mcn yarn at the moment from The Knittery and can't knit the seond socks quick enough as I need to wear these socks. The yarn is so squooshy but with good stitch def. I found the cure for second sock syndrome with this yarn.

  2. ooo! Purple AND Yellow. Love that yellow. And I'm NOT a yellow person!

  3. So pretty. I love all these. and lately every time I've been seeing a sock yarn I love it turns out it's on the MCN base... go figure.
