Book Yarn, Part IV

And now, String Theory.

I confess, String Theory’s yarns are new to me.  I kept finding absolutely gorgeous projects on Ravelry, falling madly in love with the yarn, clicking through to see who had made it, and seeing String Theory’s name over and over and over again.  Eventually, I took the hint.  It was clear I simply had to get my hands on some.

On the right is Capaer Sock in the color Blue Hill.  This is an 80% merino, 10% cashmere, 10% nylon blend (always a favorite of mine) and comes in the most breathtaking colors imaginable.  I have a sneaking suspicion great heaping quantities of this yarn may need to somehow leap into my stash in the very near future (like possibly this week) so I can knit with it whenever the urge strikes.

On the left is Blue Faced Sport in the color Grove.  This is a 3 ply, 100% blue-faced leicester yarn.  I had a hard time believing it was only wool when I first say it, as it has a tiny bit of sheen that I tend to associate with silk.  Apparently it’s all to do with the sheep, and blue-faced leicester’s just sort of do that.  I’m envisioning a field full of glittery sheep (I know this is not likely true, but don’t ruin the fantasy).
