Yarn shopping in Nyborg

I just wanted to give a recommendation of Nyborg, on the island Funen, as yarn-shopping town! Not only is Hjelholts Uldspinderi located nearby, the town is also home to at least three yarn shops located within a few 100 m in the center of Nyborg. Each of the stores is worth a detour, they have wide selections, and friendly and competent service everywhere. Interesting to see how the stores have different profiles, and how they complement each other in terms of the yarn they stock. A nice and pleasant surprise to find so many fine yarn shops in a relatively small town like Nyborg.

 

Mink Yarn

 

A few experiments with the new mink yarn I found in China. I expect a lot from. It is 100% mink (水貂 绒) and soft and delicious. It seems like a good alternative to angora, that many knitters are allergic too, me inclusive. I have no problems with knitting in this mink yarn, so it should certainly explored further.

I have made a few swatches, and now there is a hat on the needles – is this hat weather a hat worth? I use the mink yarn together with some very soft merino wool to get a little more volume, and it seems like a perfect combination. Soft, soft, and warm. The hat is almost done.
