We are delighted to announce the new annual shearing and color palette for Rosy Green Wool's Melange Yarns! There are 14 new colors, including 7 for Heb Merino Fine and 7 for Manx Merino Fine. The yarn and color selection is designed so that the Heb and Manx yarns are completely interchangeable and work together. They are particularly suitable for Fair Isle knitting, shawls, accessories, and luxurious tops. Because of the high percentage of softest Merino wool, the Melange yarns can be worn comfortably on the skin.
Heb Merino Fine and Manx Merino Fine are only available in very small quantities. There is one dyelot and each skein is individually numbered. We recommend ordering quickly as stock is sure to sell out.
Read on to see the colors and pattern ideas.
The images below show the colors that are available for Heb Merino Fine and Manx Merino Fine. Remember, although they are listed as separate lines, they are designed to work together and are interchangeable.
You may remember the pattern, Rheinlust, by Melanie Berg, launched in 2015 and designed using Heb Merino Fine. This pattern continues to be extremely popular and is an excellent choice for either Heb Merino Fine or Manx Merino Fine. Which color do you love? We've got yarn-only kits for our favorites.
Myst by Melody Hoffmann is a perfect piece to bring along with you, and wrap around your shoulders as Summer transitions to Fall. It is so light and airy, that it doesn’t weigh anything at all! The construction starts with a provisional crochet cast on, and works sideways to one edge. Then the stitches are picked up and the second portion of the shawl is completed. It is so easy, and the simple eyelet chevron stitch makes it a very enjoyable knit.
The pattern was designed using 4 skeins of Manx Merino Fine. However Heb Merino Fine is equally fine, so choose a color you love.
