Shepherds Shades by Brown Sheep Update

DISCONTINUED on our website!

Here is a 6-ply yarn with great stitch definition. Wonderful for quick projects with ribs or cables or lace design. Even though the label indicates using a larger size needle, we like the knitted fabric that results from using US size 8 or 9 needles. We prefer the tighter knit structure, especially for winter hats and scarves. Shepherds Shades would make nice thick mittens, too.

On the other hand, when knit on a US #10 1/2 needle, providing 4 stitches to the inch, this yarn is a quick knit and yet shows stitch definition beautifully.

When knitting the Babies & Bears Sweater, we suggest using US #9 or 10 needles with this yarn for a firmer knit fabric. Not sure what color to knit for a new baby? Try a neutral like Dove Gray that will complement the soft complexion of any baby. Or give baby a sunny yellow color like Maize or Sunshine to brighten baby’s world.
