Almost a year ago exactly, we first spotlighted Manos del Uruguay Serpentina, our Aran weight artisanal yarn dyed in a delicate color twirling effect. Since then, we’ve enjoyed seeing the projects you’ve created with our yarn. Today we’d like to feature some of Serpentina’s new colors for 2018, as well as some new patterns designed especially for this yarn.
New Colors in 2018
We’re delighted to add five new colors to our Serpentina lineup, bringing the total number of colorways offered to sixteen. New for 2018 are Sarah Bernhardt, Joan of Arc, Rigoberta Menchu, Georgia O’Keeffe and Anne Frank. We love these colorways which are created in memory of accomplished women in history, and we hope you love them too.
New Free Patterns Featuring Serpentina
We’re also delighted to share three new free patterns available on Ravelry and on our website for Serpentina.
Paisano Vest (left) is a simple vest, designed to highlight the rustic handspun nature of Serpentina yarn. It is knit flat from the bottom up, and features a split back detail at the waist.
Hilltop Poncho (top right) by designer Sarah Chapman is a short poncho (almost a capelet!) that’s worked in 2 skeins of Serpentina. The fringe is worked in Manos del Uruguay Maxima, and only one skein is needed.
Chimel by designer Quinn Reverendo (bottom right) is a simple but warm hat perfect for the cold weather and dreary winter days to come. Chimel uses just 1 skein of Serpentina, and the pompom is worked in a contrasting color of Manos del Uruguay Maxima.
Serpentina in the Fall Collection
Our Fall Collection includes a design made just for Serpentina! Featured here is Newkirk by Lori Gayle, an entrelac accessory that can be knit as a snug-fitting cowl or as a longer infinity loop. The entrelac pattern lets the delicate dyeing of Serpentina shine and a picot edge adds the perfect finish.
