Franca for Fabulous FOs!
Super-soft, super-warm, super-quick: Franca is luscious for your projects. It’s a wonderful choice for near instant gratification projects, for gifts or just to satisfy your need to finish something!
The team at Fairmount Fibers, the US Distributors of Manos del Uruguay yarns, have many Franca patterns, paid and free! The newest pattern to launch is a free download: the Pips Scarf. Two contrasting colors of Franca make this cozy stripey scarf! Shown here in Gold Drop (golden speckles on black background) and Gold Nugget (golden speckles on white background).
We love hats for practical and portable projects. Each hank of Franca has approximately 114 yards, offering plenty of yardage for textured stitches and even a pom-pom. Shown above from left to right: Camilliaknits’ Gala Hat in Petroleo, fivetosixhandmade’s Franca Duende Beanie in Duende, and Bleike’s Leelanau Fiber Ski Hat in Andalusia.
Consider Franca for other accessory projects as it is lightweight, warm, and soft enough to wear next to your skin. We loved seeing these Ravelry projects: Stelly9’s Lightning Fast Mittens in Koi, Lilacsandpurls’ Plumage Set in Velvet, and babycakes5’s Mountain Capelet in Menhir.
We’d love it if you could tag us in your Franca finished object photos on Facebook, Instagram, or Ravelry! Cheers to speedy projects!
