Abstract Fiber presents Soprano, our newest DK weight yarn. 50% silk / 50% merino this yarn feels like heaven. Shiny, very smooth 4-ply, and of course, very, very soft. Soprano is perfect for anything right next to your skin. It is a great weight for sweaters, scarves, hats, and many more projects. A little luxury for a reasonable price: each 4.5 ounces skein has 284 yards and is only $30. You won’t be disappointed in Soprano.

We chat with Nancy Bush, knitter, author, and instructor extraordinaire. Special thanks to Chloe, Lisa, and Maribel who were invaluable help at the Sock Summit.

  1. Interesting interview with Bush but found her a bit on the snobby side.
