Our new yarn line!
In our last post we mentioned that we'd introduced a new yarn line at TNNA: Black Tie Affair Yarns. This yarn line is an extension of our work here at Zen, but we felt that it was different enough to earn it's own name, label, and branding - we think it's really special and can't wait to start sharing it with you!
Black Tie Affair yarn is all about affordable luxury. Our first yarn under this brand is called Opera - a two-ply lace weight yarn that features a blend of 50% superwash merino, 30% cashmere, and 20% silk. The high silk content insures that lace projects made in this yarn will be durable and blockable - something that we think is very important in intricate projects like lace shawls.
When planning the yarn, we also took into account that many lace patterns these days are striped or feature contrast edging. We didn't like the idea that you'd have to buy 800 yards of lace to be able to use a little bit at a time, so decided to make our hanks smaller and less expensive (so if you want lace handwarmers or a cowl, you won't need to figure out what to do with the yardage you don't use!) Our hanks come in 50g sizes of 400 yards, making them ideal for smaller projects but still affordable for larger ones.
Black Tie Affair yarn will only be available through retailers at first, so if you're excited to try some, we've included it in the Fiber A La Mode Project #6 kit. This kit will only be available for a short amount of time, though, so be sure to snag one as soon as you can! You can pick one up here: Fiber A La Mode.
