Back to roving spun yarns…

62185D0C-933F-4D97-AEE4-0E1481490D1A

I’ve been comparing two types of Roving spun hand knitting yarns. One is 80% acrylic/20% wool, the other 100% wool.

COLOUR….I have found that the synthetic yarn, dyes with a nice sheen and a brilliant colour.

The 100% wool ones, the colours are more subued and a “matte” look. Of course this could be the techniques used by the Dye house.

WEARABILITY…….the synthetics are not as warm when compared to 100% wool. It only matters to the wearer.

The HAND…….feels relatively the same, pleasant to the fingers of the handknitter.

PRICE…….the Wool is 30 to 50% more than the synthetics. Some grades of wool is even more. All yarns are graded for quality, be they synthetics or naturals.

The above photo is acrylic/ wool mix yarn. 7mm needle, cast on 56 stitches, 7×7 stitch rib. Finish the crown in any one of many methods. Approx 80 gm of yarn.
