Aubergine Yarn Color in Two Lights

Aubergine yarn in two light- a great color name, isn’t it?

A friend gave me a sweater’s worth of Harrisville Designs Highland Yarn. Wooly warmth for next winter! I never worked with it before and it is nice to wind and knit. I’d like to finish it before summer’s full heat kicks in.

I used my iPhone to document progress of the sweater (pattern is Larch by Pam Allen, available on Ravelry).

I snapped the front, then the back. Ooops, the flash went off in the second shot.

Watch this two minute video to see how wool is milled and spun into yarn – Harrisville, New Hampshire.

A Day in the Life of an American Woolen Mill

From their website-

“Highland is one of our flagship yarns, available in 64 tweedy, heathered, woolen spun colors. This yarn is perfect for a cozy New England sweater, or a favorite pair of mitts. The yarn was engineered to wear better and better with every wash. Don’t let the crunch fool you. After 10 years of constant wear, you’ll know why we spun it this way.”

  1. Love the word Aubergine. Please post a photo of you wearing it too. Love the look of knits but prefer crochet. One hook, one stitch at a time to worry about.

  2. A nice selection of photos, and the video – “A Day in the Life of an American Woolen Mill” – is excellent. And I agree with Coleen Rush’s comment; I also love the word aubergine. It sounds so much more elegant than “eggplant’! 🙂

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
