For the last few days I have been photographing and listing Evilla Artyarn colors. And just when I think I am done new colors come in. So I decided to post about it tonight without further delay.
If you have ever worked with Kauni you know the super gradual and long color exchanges of their yarn. Evilla Artyarn has the same gradual and long color exchanges, has the same yarn base (the gauge is exactly the same), only with a much wider color range. It seems that I will never get done photographing and posting new colors.
In addition, Evilla seems to be rich in lanolin and has a ever so slightly softer hand. When we opened our first box and grabbed our respective hanks the first thing we did was to smell the yarn and we loved the lanolin aroma. The fiber seems almost directly from the sheep and you will feel the lanolin on your hands as you work with the yarn.
The colors…the colors of Evilla are simply stunning and makes me love this yarn.
Evilla Artyarn can easily be used as a substitute for Kauni. If you are on Ravelry do a yarn search for Kauni and look at the projects. Now multiply the potential for color lines by ten and you have Evilla. Another cool thing about Evilla is that it comes in various weights. We have not yet received the DK or Worsted weights in Evilla Artyarn but we hope to have those in the near future, which I thought would be ideal for heavier projects and for felting.
I have so many photos that I would like to share with you but I think I will stop with just one more. Please excuse my enthusiasm, Evilla colors have me spell bound.
Sending you my best from a late night in Seattle.
