We've been working on this one for a while and now, we're so excited to offer you our newest yarn, Holston.
Sleek and glossy, Holston brings together the best of silk and Bluefaced Leicester wool. These two fibers are soft but also strong. They both take dye brilliantly, and have an intrinsic shine that catches and reflects light. Holston has a 3-ply construction with a soft twist that lets the fibers glow. Finished projects will have a gentle halo that only enhances the silkiness of the yarn.
We envision Holston in lacy, silky shawls and garments that rely on excellent drape.

What's in a name? Holston is the name of a local river system in Northeast Tennessee that flows from (almost!) our backyard into Knoxville. The flowing nature of the yarn and its reflective nature made us think of smooth waters.
