Blaze Orange Wool Yarn by Bartlettyarns
Blaze (flourescent) orange 100% wool yarn sounds almost like an oxymoron, but it really exists! We think Bartlettyarns may be the only domestic yarn company producing it, and lucky for us, Bartlettyarns is in Harmony. Bartlettyarns has been producing yarn in Maine since 1821 when Ozias Bartlett founded it in Harmony. It sits along side Higgins Stream in a vintage mill building that holds the last remaining working spinning mule in the United States.
We are offering this yarn either in a worsted weight (knitting at 4 1/2 stitches per inch) or a super bulky (knitting at about 2 1/2 stitches per inch). Each four once skein of worsted has 210 yards and the super bulky has 80 yards.
The color of this yarn would be considered a "hunter's orange" and turned into a hat or mittens, it would make a great gift!
At the moment, we are offering a free knit mitten pattern with the purchase of the bulky weight yarn. You will need to use #11 and #13 double point needles. You can knit a pair in an evening!
