I’m always on the look out for yarn with texture, which you easily find in hand-spun yarn. But there are more affordable options too. I often weave with cotton yarns because I really like how strong they are and a little bit because I have a very slight allergy to wool (too many wool particles in the air and I start sneezing).

When I came across the Billow yarn by Knitpicks I was really excited. This is a cotton yarn that has a raw spun texture that I haven’t seen much in most yarns. And even better, it’s on the bulkier side of yarn weight. It looks really nice as rya knots and tassels because it drapes really well. It also adds some interesting texture when it’s woven up. They come in more of an earthy color palette, but I bought Sagebrush, Lichen, and Ice Lily because they really remind me of Spring. There is also a really nice mustard yellow that I think I’ll pick up next time.
Oh and since I received a few questions about the roving I used in my circle weave, it is Knitpicks Tuff Puff in Mint. I wrote about this yarn and the many more color options in a previous wishlist post.
Is anyone else excited for the upcoming change of seasons? Does the weather affect the colors you gravitate towards?
