Oh, Canada! Yarnmarket welcomes Louet with Gems Sport Weight

We're celebrating Canada Day by adding to our expansive inventory Louet's Gems in sport weight. Beauty, eh?

We like to add Canadian products like Gems to our site as often as we can -- because it makes my Canadian Mom happy -- and because we know that these are high quality wool products that can stand up to to cold, cold, oh so very cold (brrrrrrr) Canadian winters.

Louet's Gems is one of the softest, most versatile DK-weight yarns we've seen in a long time, and it's perfect for soft socks, cuddly baby outfits and warm yet lightweight sweaters.

This versatile yarn has a tight twist to reduce pilling and to increase elasticity, and it's machine washable, too. Available at Yarnmarket in 24 gorgeous solid colors, the color shown is a pretty teal that would make a terrifically trendy tuque.

Beautifully crafted in South Africa of 100% merino wool it's only $12.80 per 100 gram hanks.

I really do recommend this DK weight yarn to anyone knitting autumn and winter garments for the family. When you see all the pretty colors we have in stock, you'll understand why. (Just think of all the lovely tuques you'll be able to make!)
