Jody Long - Alba

C$25.95
Tweedy, soft and in a huge range of colours, Alba by Jody Long is great for colourwork and texture, but also adds depth to even the simplest knits.

We love this light DK yarn for so many reasons. It feels great, soft and luxurious without sacrificing stitch definition and durability. It can work as a sport-weight yarn in tighter gauges for colourwork or cables, or it can be knit as a classic DK - blocking will allow it to bloom beautifully. We also love the generous yardage of 350 m (382 yds) per 100 g. Try this in patterns that call for Rowan Felted Tweed or Brooklyn Tweed Dapple, for example.

Each shade is dappled subtly contrasting flecks, which add dimension to the finished fabric, without overshadowing textural stitches or detracting from colourwork.

Alba is the original Gaelic name for the kingdom of Scotland as its subtle and stunning tweed effect and colours are inspired by the Scottish Highlands.
