March 20, 2023
Sure, the calendar says spring, but we're still pretty bundled up (some of us might be wearing two sweatshirts but we're not saying who 😉). Warming temps are on the way, though, so we thought we'd highlight yarns for warmer weather. Circulo's Sugar Cane yarn is a great example of fibers we love when it's hot outside. This DK weight (#3) yarn is 100% Viscose made from sugar cane pulp, a renewable natural resource. This drapey yarn has a slight sheen, perfect for crocheted or knitted clothing that you can dress up or down. It has a smooth, cool texture, which is why we love it.
