Rico Yarns has been a part of the Estelle Yarns Family for a number of years now, and we are always so delighted to see what innovative new products they roll out with each season. Based in Brakel, Germany, Rico produces top quality yarns and knitting accessories that are available to knitters and crocheters of all skill levels and tastes.
Rico’s latest baby yarn called Baby Dream DK is an incredibly soft, washable, acrylic/poly blend, that is available in six cheerful self-striping colourways. With most shades appropriate for either a boy or girl, there is no need to wait until the baby arrives (or until the parents tell you the sex!) for you to cast on. Besides… isn’t that the first thing we all do when we hear the good news of a new baby-to-be? We cast on a baby gift!
Not only are the colours perfectly playful, but Rico has also launched four new knitting leaflets to compliment this gorgeous yarn. With designs including a hoodie, a garter stitch pullover, a cardigan and three baby blankets, there is sure to be something for all tastes and skill levels.
Should you still consider yourself relatively new to knitting, do not be intimidated! The garter stitch pullover is a perfect project to get you comfortable with garment construction. But if you happen to be a more seasoned knitter, then perhaps the cabled jacket would be more your speed. With an attention to detail found within the gorgeous finishing of this garment, this little cardigan will be perfect indoors or out!
This yarn and these patterns are currently in stock in our warehouse, and ready to ship! So if you are a local yarn store in Canada who might be interested, please click here and here to place your order today.
While we could talk about Rico Yarns all day, we may just save some chatter for another day. Watch this space for news of another new Rico Yarn, unlike anything you have ever seen before (seriously!) on the blog this Friday. But should you feel the need to continue this conversation, feel free to drop us a line! It is always a pleasure hearing from you.
Happy knitting everyone!
