Missing your favorite color? It's on its way back! In January 2023, our longtime partners at Ultimate Textile in North Carolina sold their business to our friends at Mountain Meadow Wool, who spin both Forge and Weld. We've had a long production delay as we've helped the team at MMW get up to speed on dyeing our favorite shades of both yarns, but we're now in the process of finally getting restocked, so if we don't have your favorite shade, we should have it very, very soon (10 October 2023).
Forge is made from a heathered blend of 70% U.S. Merino (sourced in Colorado and New Mexico), and 30% U.S. Corriedale (sourced in New York) wool. Forge is a round, well-balanced three-ply yarn. It has a beautiful balance of stitch definition, bounce, and wooly, cohesive bloom that produces both beautiful stockinette fabrics and eye-popping cables. Forge is fabulous in sweaters, hats, mitts, cowls, and even large-format shawls, and knits up happily on needles in the US 6 - 8 (4.00 mm to 5.00 mm) range.
A quick note about color: we know there's nothing more frustrating than yarn that looks one color online and another when it shows up at your door. We've used a fine art reproduction camera and studio lighting to capture true-to-life colors; this means they're optimized for accuracy, not for "pop" on your screen. Still, for best results, you'll want to view them on a color-calibrated screen; a modern smartphone or tablet with the brightness turned up works great.
