Rowan has taken their best selling Kidsilk Haze and added a shimmering metallic thread to some of the most popular Kidsilk Haze colors.  This newest line gives knitters a touch of glamour, elegance and sparkle, and is perfect for holiday knitting!

Kidsilk Haze Eclipse comes is a 2-ply lace weight yarn that comes in skeins measuring 219 yards/ 200 meters and in a blend of  66% Mohair, 27% Silk, 4 % Polyester and 3% Nylon.  The recommended needle size is US 3 – 8 (3.25 – 5 mm) with a gauge of 18-23 stitches and 23 – 34 rows in stockinette to equal 4″ (10 cm).  This newest addition retails for approximately $15.95 and should be available now at your local shop or online.

This yarn knits up just like it’s counterpart, Kidsilk Haze, and is a delight to knit with, not to mention super soft and luscious, and is currently available in eight sparkly colors.

The Mini Collection that accompanies this lovely new yarn line, features beautiful and very feminine designs from the Rowan Archive that showcase this exquisite new yarn.

Inside knitters will find a stunning collection of pieces that range from simple to more intricate, from stockinette to lace.  There truly is a pattern for everyone inside this booklet, and sizes that range from small to extra large.

Inside this booklet, knitter’s will find:

My personal favorite in this collection is Hershey designed by Marie Wallin.  This lovely lace and stockinette stitch wrap over cardigan is a perfect piece to wear for the holidays, especially paired with a black skirt, or even a black dress.

Since I received two skeins in shade# 00455 Pieces, a gorgeous deep blue, for review, I’m thinking that a scarf for Christmas would be just the ticket.

I have narrowed down my choices to the Ruched Scarf & Wrap ,Kelly’s Frothy Crocheted Scarf & Wrap and English Mesh Lace Scarf, all from Churchmouse Yarns.  It’s really hard for me to decide but I’m leaning towards the English Mesh Lace Scarf.

I have to mention that one of my fellow Rowan Ambassadors, Kristen,  is busy knitting a gorgeous piece using the Kidsilk Haze Eclipse in Virgo (shown at the very top).  Be sure to check out Kristen’s blog for her progress, it’s going to be a beauty and gorgeous for the holidays!

  1. It looks delicious, specially that brown tone in the beginning of the post. It made me think of brown sugar, which got me thinking of cookies……and Christmas. Everything’s got me thinking of Christmas these days! That blue is gorgeous as well, can’t wait to see the scarf you plan to make,

    • It does rather look like a sugar cookie Johanna, a toasty brown sugar color perfect for the holidays. I’m starting to think about Christmas too, it’s just around the corner :)

  2. How can you not love a yarn with sparkles! The blue is a great colour. I like the patterns you have picked. I really like the ruched wrap but the lace is very nice too. Happy knitting!

  3. I also love this yarn so much. The ruched scarf from Churchmouse is very pretty. I just finished my sweater in the Virgo color and now just have to do the bad part, the finishing! Ug!

  4. Q – Hi Tina, so totally behind on all of my blog reading that I’m just getting caught up tonight. I’ve already added 4 patterns on Ravelry because of you! English Mesh Lace Scarf is the latest. Stop it!!!! I also downloaded some ebooks you mentioned on another blog. Geeze lady, you’re killing me. LOL! So totally love your blog.

    • Thank you Susan and I’m glad to have inspired you and hope you’re enjoying your new patterns. Lol, just enabling and tempting as much as possible :)
