Color Manos del Uruguay
Product number: WM1009.T
EAN: K201
Variant: Tabac
Product information "Manos del Uruguay Marla"
Looks like handspun: "Marla" by the Uruguayan hand-dyeing cooperative Manos del Uruguay consists of two strands of yarn, both hand-dyed, that are spun together to create this special effect. It's a lovely yarn for shawls and cowls as it is both very soft (superfine merino!) and superwash, so you can toss your pieces in the washing machine when necessary. The yardage is 273 yards / 250 m per 100 g skein, so your hats and shawls will knit up fairly quickly and be squishy and warm. "Marla" looks especially good when combined with its sister yarn "Sami", e. g. in a "Match & Move" shawl or with stranded patterns.
Read Manos del Uruguay's profile here on Martina's website. The yarn is dyed in a women's project in Uruguay, providing fair working conditions and pay for women in rural areas. This yarn proves that making the world more beautiful and a better place at the same time actually works!

Hitch on the Move
Formate: PDF Download | Language: Deutsch
Zig-zags just look cool, are fun to knit and go with everything, if you ask me! This shawl unites the sharktooth design of my most popular pattern “Hitchhiker” with the construction of “Match & Move”: two yarns interlock along the middle axis in a zig-zag-pattern. Of course, everything is worked seamlessly in one piece, and in the end, there are only very few ends to weave in. For “Hitch on the Move” we chose two lovely plant-based yarns, one with color changes and one without. If you prefer, you can use a set of mini-skeins for one side and a solid color for the other – the possibilities are endless! Please keep in mind if you change yarns with every stripe, there will be more ends to weave in. The pattern includes instructions on how to make the shawl bigger using more yarn.Below you can see color suggestions from Kremke Soul Wool "Morning Salutation" and Schoppel "Zauberball Crazy Cotton". The shawl on the photos is knitted from two balls per color.

Match & Move

I just love the “We’re Different”-Grab Bags from Rohrspatz & Wollmeise: Depending on which kind you choose, you will get a combination of a multicolor and a matching semisolid, hand-picked by the dyemaster herself, who has an unmatched sense of color. What shall I say? I was really surprised when I saw that she teamed up a softly variegated brown-grey with a bold and warm red. I just had to give it a try and get my knitting needles moving! So here’s “Match & Move”, a shawl designed to show off the perfect Wollmeise color combination and use up (almost!) an entire grab bag of yarn. My shawl weighs 286 grams. The unusual construction results in kinked stripes that look really interesting when you wear it. The knitting is plain garter stitch and very relaxing, and the shawl is so big and comfy, it is just a dream to wear. Definitely my favorite shawl so far – and I am determined to order another grab bag, be surprised and knit myself one more. Size of the shawl in the pictures: 200 x 50 cm (80 x 20 inches) 286 g of yarn (140 g of color A and 146 g of color B) Wollmeise Colors: Resi and Zimtapfel (both WD)The pattern "Match & Move" is part of Martina Behm´s book "Strickmich! Knitting Inventions".

A beautiful luxurious yarn in amazing colors does not need a fancy stitch pattern to shine. Combining two favorite shades in an unexpected shape makes an elegant and beautiful shawl that will go with an evening gown as well as with casual T-Shirt and jeans and fascinate by the interesting arrangement of differently colored areas. The unusual construction makes “Areas” a fun and pleasant, but very relaxing knit.Measurements: Length 214 cm / 85 inches, Depth 53 cm / 21 inches

BC Garn Loch Lomond Bio
Color BC Yarn: 10 Hellblau
A typical British Tweed Yarn: Loch Lomond is woolen spun, that means it has a nice volume and at the same time a good long yardage. This results in very light garments. The rustic look with the typical tweed nups inspires you for warm shawls. And last but not least: It is GOTS certified, that means from sheep to dye stuff, from production to stock keeping and packing, each step is inspected carefully and in line with very strict organic and social standards.Voluminous, with a rustic look and a soft and comfy feel: That’s “Loch Lomond Bio” by BC Garn, a lightweight Tweed inspired by British traditions. Just as its name – Loch Lomond is said to be the most beautiful lake in Scotland, located in a stunning National Park. So it only makes sense that this yarn is certified organic: The wool comes from small farms in Argentina that comply with the strict rules of the “Global Organic Textile Standard” (GOTS), as does the spinning mill that processes the fiber, and even the offices and storage at BC Garn in northern Germany. “We are required to work in an energy-efficient way, recycle and offer fair working conditions to our employees”, says Britta Kremke, owner of BC Garn. The standards are obligatory for every step of the production – so the knitter can be sure that the yarn she holds in her hands is made in an animal-friendly and sustainable fashion. The sample "Tough & Toasty" in our book "Strickmich! Knitting Inventions" was made out of half a skein of this yarn, color "Erika".
