Continuing to the third "C" this week's 75% off yarn is Cosma. I was intrigued to learn according to Wikipedia and the Oxford dictionary - "Cosma" is not actually a word, it is a name.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
- Cosma may refer to:
- Cosma, a Lithuanian athletics sports club from the capital city Vilnius
- Cosma Foot, a French Guianese football team playing at the top level
- Cosma International, a subsidiary of automotive component manufacturer Magna International
- Cosma River, a river in Romania
This internet photo of the Cosma, Romania, might make a person think of fairies spinning a wonderful yarn in the twilight or early dawn of a fall morning. This region is one of the wildest, remotest parts of Romania.
According to Berroco: Cosma is a luxurious blend of merino wool, alpaca and silk with a sophisticated, contemporary color palette. The multi-plied and refined twist creates a classic yarn that’s perfect for wearable sweaters and heirloom accessories*
50 gms/150 m
60% Camelid/30% Merino/10% Silk
I have worked with this yarn! It is a soft, beautifully spun fine, hand-wash, with great stitch definition and wonderful drape, warm and light. A knitter's dream until you discover Berroco has discontinued this product - the only reason it is on sale.
Come in, browse and drool - before we see you at the shows!
Written by Anne, currently crafting with a different merino - no camel in this one.
