"CoBaSi Yarn"

Sock of the Month: “Biscayne Bay” Socks

Stroll down a beach paradise in our "Biscayne Bay Socks" ...
Featuring HiKoo's CoBaSi Yarn ... 20% Off!

​The emerald islands and bright, aquamarine waters of Biscayne National Park features jeweled coral reefs, mangrove forests and tropical beaches. This National Park emcompasses Biscayne Bay and its offshore barrier reefs just south of Miami in the Florida Keys. Beautiful beaches provide nesting grounds for sea turtles ... and the reefs and waters harbor more than 200 species of life, including 16 endangered species!

95% of the park is covered in water, making most of it accessible only by boat. Visitors can camp, watch wildlife or snorkel their way along the underwater Maritime Heritage Trail which links dive sites, including six shipwrecks. The calm waters also offer divers a view of dolphins, manatees and sea turtles ... which are the inspiration for our Biscayne Bay Socks!

Paradise Meadow Socks
by Amy Loberg
Pattern FREE with purchase of CoBaSi or CoBaSi Multi
This colorful and playful sock pattern looks a little challenging but is remarkably easy to knit. It's knit from the top down, and there are only a handful of rows that contain colorwork. The majority of the fabric is basic Stockinette stitch. Where there is colorwork, you use a bit of knit and purl texture, and in a few spots the variegated yarn adds a little punch. This pattern also features full gusset-shaping and Eye of Partridge heel reinforcement.

20% Off All HiKoo Yarns!

An alpaca in Bolivia

To celebrate three new HiKoo yams, we’ve put all of our HiKoo yarns on sale at 20% off!

SimpliCria
A “Cria” is Spanish for a baby alpaca.  Alpacas are known for their wonderfully soft, incredibly warm yarn.  And just like how a human baby has softer hair than a 60 year old, a cria’s fur is even softer than an adult alpaca.  HiKoo hand sorts their alpaca twice, so only the softest 1% of the alpaca fleece is used in SimpliCria.  Then, they add to the softness by using a chain construction, creating a lofty, airy yarn that just flows!   Great for skin-touching projects like a scarf, cowl or hat!

 

Kenzington in Boysenberry

Kenzington
Kenzington was inspired by its cousin, Kenzie.  Kenzie is a blend of New Zealand merino with a fun, tweedy look.  The new Kenzington uses a similar blend of New Zealand merino wool with nylon for strength, alpaca for softness, and silk noils just for fun!  Then the fun is multiplied by adding a chain construction in a bulky weight for a yarn that is soft, airy – and fast!  With ten tweedy colors to choose from, you can knit up a quick, cozy cabled sweater or soft and springy accessories.

Zumie in Steely Blue

Zumie
Zoom!  Zoom!  Zumie is a fun, single-ply wool blend in a super bulky weight.  It’s hard to pick a favorite color with 20 choices ranging from bold jewel tones, soft pastels, and stand-out neons.  Not sure what to knit?  Each skein of Zumie features a free one-skein pattern on the ball band.  You can zoom out a Zumie hat or cowl over the weekend and wear it on Monday!

Prefer to stick with a stand-by classic like American B.R.A.N.D., Simplicity or CoBaSi?  No problem.  All of our HiKoo yarns are on sale at 20% off.  No need to limit yourself to the three new yarns – it’s a good time to add to your stash!  Do it now – the 20% off sale ends February 28th!

Happy Knitting . . . . Amy
