Notes from the Head Gardener
Enka translates from an old Japanese word for "fireworks" - and we expect that it will spark up your Spring Summer yarn sales! Weighing in at everyone's favorite "sweet spot" between a worsted and laceweight, this user-friendly DK/ Sport weight yarn is sure-to-be popular.
With its unique 50% Cotton, 20% Silk, 15% Wool, 15% Polyamide fiber combination, Enka is an obvious luxurious choice for summery garments of all types. See our initial three new designs, a modular shawl, lace shawl and loose-fitting tee, shown below.
The six available colorways, all beautiful, will make it difficult to choose a favorite.
