Farmhouse Yarns Summer Spun from Hopyard Spinnery (and its close cousins Autumn Spun and Silk Blend) is a wonderful airy addition to Hopyard’s lines. Its combo of lambswool, cotton, and silk make it light, strong, soft, and stripy. But who cares why, since Elise was instantly (literally) inspired to make her first T-shirt of the Hoochie Mama Series. Kevin has said on a lot more than one occasion just how good looking it is over that jet black top…
It’s great for something lacy, like the Hoochie, or it can be worked just as easily on smaller needles for an informal top, a bag, a hat, a skirt, a poncho …
And the range of colors is great. With Hopyard’s typical variation, but they are solids (except for the few variegated ones), so they just range a bit across light and dark. Let us know if you want a rangy selection, otherwise we typically pick from shades closer together (but, please, don\'t think "dye lot!").
