New Fall Yarns: Tonalita & Yosemite

Early response has been overwhelming to some new yarns that have come in during the past few weeks: Tonalita and Yosemite, both from Trendsetter yarns.

They are both composed of wool & acrylic, are extremely soft and lofty, and come in a wide range of beautiful multi colors. Tonalita actually stripes.

Tonalita is worsted weight and comes in 7 colorways:

The sweater was provided by Trendsetter, and is a super-simple asymmetrical cardigan. The pattern is available for purchase. Here is a closeup of the sweater - notice how the yarn naturally stripes:

Yosemite has a similar fiber composition but is a bulky thick & thin - I'm thinking it will make great scarves and hats as well as cozy sweaters.

We will be getting a cabled sweater out of Yosemite very soon.
