New to the Online Shop: Frog Tree Yarns

Posted by Amanda on

We'd like to introduce the newest additions to the online shop: Frog Tree Yarns' Picoboo and Ewetopia.

Frog Tree Yarn Picoboo at Raging Wool Shop Online Store

Picoboo (at left) is a sport weight plied yarn made from 40% cotton and 60% bamboo. It is also a machine washable yarn. Good for both knitting and crochet, the yarn is very soft and is a great fit for summer projects and baby and children’s projects. For knitters, we suggest using a wooden or blunt needle with Picoboo. We carry 11 colorways, seen at left.

Here are two free patterns we think will work well with Picaboo: 

  • Jane Green's crochet Pineapple Top - we love it for layering in the summer, and it's on-trend with what we see in the stores. So much fun. 

Frog Tree Yarn Ewetopia at Raging Wool Shop Online Store

Ewetopia (below) is Frog Tree Yarns' lovely DK weight plied Merino wool yarn made from 50% superwash Merino wool and 50% Merino wool. The Merino wool makes this a very soft yarn that offers great stitch definition and a springy, comfortable fabric once knit or crocheted up. The superwash wool absorbs the dye differently than the plain Merino, resulting in a slightly tonal appearance to the yarn. The 50/50 composition of this wool yarn also yields a unique fabric if felted. Just look at the 12 gorgeous colors we have!

Here are a few free patterns we think will work well with Ewetopia:

  • Jennifer Hoel's Garter Yoke Baby Cardi is a perfect holiday gift for that little one in your life - and it only needs 300 yards of yarn. It's never too early to start holiday projects, right? It's available in German, Italian and Spanish translations, too.
  • Tora Froseth Design's Little Sister's Dress is a great top-down seamless knit available in 3 months-24 months sizes. The pattern is available in English, French, and Norwegian.
  • Beans the Cat from Linda Dawkins is a fun and quick knit toy. Knit that tail as long as you like for a whimsical effect. Make one of the kids' patterns above, and make Beans with the leftovers!
  • And to give the adults some options, we love this crochet Loops! I Did it Again shawl by Creative Cia. It's airy and scallop-y, and just plain pretty.

We have more yarn being added to the shop this summer on a weekly basis, so be sure to check back to see what's new. And as always, we'd love to see you on our Facebook wall, or in our Ravelry Group!
