Introducing: Zooey

by Lauria on February 19, 2014

UPDATE: Zooey patterns are now available online! You can purchase them in our shop.

 

With a winter of endless snow, it’s hard to imagine that spring will ever be here; that we’ll soon have gamboling lambs in the pasture and the ground will be full of lush, green grass instead of white, white snow. Spring on the farm is a time of hope, new life, and high spirits. The days are longer and woolen scarves and mittens get put away for a season. But there’s still plenty of knitting to do! And we’re so very thrilled to introduce a yarn for our friends that love knitting and perhaps looking at sheep, but cannot work with the wool. Or our friends further south for whom alpaca is simply overkill. Or our friends who want a lighter yarn to work with as the temperature rises.

“What is this marvelous yarn,” you ask? Well, I’m happy to tell you! It’s Zooey, a cotton-linen blend in a DK weight. It’s machine-washable yarn and has a lovely thick-and-thin texture.

Zooey Yarn Hero

Our sample knitters had this to say about working with it:

“It does not pool and therefore creates a beautiful and lightweight fabric in both stockinette and garter stitch.”

“The finished fabric is lovely with a  nice sheen and drape.  I would definitely use it again.”

“The yarn is nice to work with and not too splitty, even for my very pointy needles.  I had absolutely NO problems with breakage (it is quite strong, actually), pilling, or showing wear while working.  It blocks like a dream!”

“Due to the cotton/linen nature I expected to have some soreness in my hands as has been the case when using other fingering/sport weight cotton but to my surprise this yarn didn’t act that way.”

It softens up considerably in the wash for a soft, comfortable fabric that will not leave you overheating in the summer. And summer is exactly what our designer, Mari Chiba had in mind when designing for this yarn.

In fact, each of the patterns are named “summer” in a different language – German, French, Mandarin, Arabic, etc. These patterns and fun and flirty and should be worn while sipping a lemonade in the shade. From a cowl to keep the AC off your neck, to skirt for an afternoon of shopping, or a tunic that is equally at home being worn as a swimsuit cover up, under a slip dress, or with leggings and a cami, you’ll feel fresh and carefree while wearing them. We recommend that you start knitting them as soon as possible so that you can daydream of warm days while knitting and so that they’re ready for the instant the sun starts shinning and you start to crave some cool snow.

Why do some of your models look so angry or sad It is very unsettling that they look that way – Always makes people comfortable and receptive to purchase something or like it if there is a smiling face to go with it…

11 Patricia February 19, 2014 at 9:37 am

13 Marcy February 19, 2014 at 9:46 am

I favorited Zooey on Ravelry. The minute I saw that top I knew I wanted to make this for my new daughter-in-law. She would love it, and it would show off her tattoo perfectly. When I scrolled down and saw the give-away I knew that it was meant to be!

14 KariB February 19, 2014 at 10:37 am

I love the Sommer sleeveless top – so cute!

15 kelly February 19, 2014 at 11:16 am

I was loving all of the patterns as I scrolled down and let out a little gasp when I saw El Seyf multi-wrap cardigan – that is my favorite (and favorite on Rav-also fav’ed Natsu). It looks like the cardi will wear well wrapped & also un-wrapped w/a shell underneath. love linen/cotton yarn for the summer!

29 Trinity February 19, 2014 at 3:38 pm

I like the Sommer pattern! The way the stitch pattern frames the neckline is a great design details.

I am excited you are venturing into plant fiber yarns in your line. As much as I love knitting with animal fibers, I really need to beef up my wardrobe of plant fiber knits. They are a better fit for my sensitive skin and thus get worn a lot more than my animal fiber sweaters. I’ll be on the lookout for Zooey at my LYS.

30 Trinity February 19, 2014 at 3:41 pm

Oops! A heads up: the store locator link you posted didn’t work for me. It gave me a 404 error notice.

148 Natalia February 20, 2014 at 11:22 am

I queued Sommer. I’ve been looking for a cute, flattering tank top to knit for this Summer, if it ever comes.

149 Ruth Ann Jones February 20, 2014 at 11:53 am

Love this idea of yarn content. I am very hot natured and miss out on some lovely clothes and accessories. Finally I get a….. chance at some also!.

152 Kieran February 20, 2014 at 12:16 pm

I love the El Seyf multi-wrap cardigan. Wrap style anything has always been a favorite of mine. I adore the flattering shape along with shorter sleeve length. I love wearing linen in the summer making the pairing of this pattern and fiber perfect!

153 Amy Gray February 20, 2014 at 12:20 pm

I love the El Seyf pattern, such a versatile piece!

154 CindyMac February 20, 2014 at 1:28 pm

160 Linda Cannon February 20, 2014 at 2:09 pm

I love the stitches in the Summer pattern. The yarn sounds yummy.

161 babs707 February 20, 2014 at 2:14 pm

I had to favorite the Ete sweater–so beautiful and fun!

162 SweetBay February 20, 2014 at 2:16 pm

170 Maryellen Cranston February 20, 2014 at 2:55 pm

I would say E!Seyf, but Sommer was a close second.

171 AutumnArboretum February 20, 2014 at 2:56 pm

My favorite is the Xiaji lace tunic dress. I think it would look great with a silky slip under it!

172 Kathy C February 20, 2014 at 3:00 pm

My favorite top is the “Ete knit top”… I can’t wait to try out the pattern!

173 knittingdancer on Ravelry February 20, 2014 at 3:14 pm

Very interesting yarn. I love cotton yarn. My favorite was Yaz capelet/cowl .

177 Sabrina Owen February 20, 2014 at 4:04 pm

I really like the Ete knit top. I just love the back of it. I think that Mari Chiba did a great job. I was just in Raleigh, NC this past weekend and found it wonderful to know that your designer lives in my great state. I live in Charlotte, NC and am a proud Tarheel. Thanks for the beautiful yarns you carry. I have enjoyed looking at this new one, Zooey. I met the owner a year or so ago at my home yarn shop, Cottage Yarn in Mint Hill, NC. She makes some lovely yarn!

178 Shelley Solie February 20, 2014 at 5:34 pm

Love the Sommer Sleeveless Top and El Seyf Multiwrap Cardigan. Would be thrilled to try this new yarn!

179 Short Megan February 20, 2014 at 5:35 pm

186 Zaz February 20, 2014 at 9:16 pm

My favourite is ‘Sommer’. Thanks for the chance.

191 Tamara a dicker February 21, 2014 at 2:46 am

Love the patterns, but peeved that I cannot purchase the online. Live in Qld Australia in a generally warm climate and am constantly looking for top patterns, rather than sweaters.

192 Lorien February 21, 2014 at 9:05 am

I love the Ete top and I can not wait until it’s too warm to knit wool so I can switch to cotton!

193 Lorraine Fleck February 21, 2014 at 9:24 am

Definitely the Yaz cowl. Love to knit cowls.

194 Alice February 21, 2014 at 10:29 am

Beautiful yarn. I chose the Yaz cape let, cowl.

195 Jan Q. February 21, 2014 at 4:47 pm

But every pattern is striking!

196 Laurinda February 21, 2014 at 7:34 pm

197 Laurinda February 21, 2014 at 7:38 pm

Just pinned the yarn AND the pattern!

198 Rachel Policare February 21, 2014 at 9:02 pm

I favorited AND queued the Yaz capelet / cowl, and not just because I’m the model. I want to be able to wear it again!

199 Leslie February 22, 2014 at 3:31 am

Amar skirt for me!

200 Tara February 22, 2014 at 9:00 am

217 Jane from Maryland February 24, 2014 at 5:08 pm

El sett is so stylish and charming. Looks like fun, relaxing knit, too!

218 Jane from Maryland February 24, 2014 at 5:09 pm

El Seyf! Curse you, autocorrect!

(Faved on Ravelry. ID: SaraMCrafts)

222 Katy Brown February 25, 2014 at 12:11 am

Hard to choose just one! I do like the Natsu cardigan.

223 Jamie February 25, 2014 at 12:25 am

My fav is Garmi. It looks cool enough for the hot/humid summers in Alabama.

224 Beth Rudo February 25, 2014 at 2:47 am

I love the El Seyf multi-wrap cardigan. So flattering and versatile!

225 Natalia G. February 25, 2014 at 3:18 am

Actually I chose 4 patterns on Ravelry but if I should win, I would knit YAZ with this lovely blend.
To have a summer cowl made of cotton-linen yarn would be excellent and I would simply love to have it on my needles/hands ;-)
Thank you for this possibility!
