Note: Like many small businesses, our supply chain has chugged on a little bit slower than we'd like as we emerge from the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic. While most colors of Weld will ship immediately, orders for Fawn, Gold Leaf, Juniper, Lake, and Red Feather will ship in May.
Like its big sibling, Forge, Weld 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. Weld is a well-balanced three-ply yarn, with a slightly more energetic twist for strength and durability. It has a beautiful balance of stitch definition, bounce, and wooly, cohesive bloom that produces both beautiful stockinette fabrics and delicate lace, texture, and brioche, and is perfect for stranded colorwork. Weld blooms beautifully and easily knits up on larger needles; we like it on anywhere from a US 3 to a US 6 (3.25 to 4.00 mm), depending on the application.
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.
