Introducing Be So Brave Yarn by Kristin Omdahl

I am thrilled to announce the launch of Be So Brave Yarn!!! I searched for a very long time to find a luscious, lofty, and USA made yarn. This is 100% pure American Merino Wool. It retails for $15.00 in 120 yd (109m) - 2oz (56g) hanks of glorious worsted weight yarn. The current palette includes 11 gorgeous, saturated colors that complement each other beautifully. These thoughtfully chosen colors also tie in nicely with charity ribbon and awareness colors.

The suggested gauge is as follows:

16 - 20 sts = 4” (10cm) on US 7 - 9 (4.5mm - 5.5mm) knitting needles

11 - 14 sts = 4” (10cm) on US I - K (5.5mm - 6.5mm) crochet hooks

This is a super soft, lofty yarn. It has wonderful stitch definition for cables and texture.  Projects of all sorts, from hats to scarves to sweaters and afghans work up quickly and beautifully.  It is also a perfect choice for felting.

Your purchase of this yarn, as well as Be So Fine, Be So Sporty and Be So Wild Yarns, supports Project Kristin Cares.
