Crabapple Yarns Posh Fingering Yarn Review

Hello Noble Knitters! It is Donna, I'm the Knitting Doctor here at NobleKnits. Today I'd like to show you a really spectacular fingering weight yarn. It is made by a company called Crabapple Yarns. Posh Fingering is 65% Superwash Merino and 35% Bamboo. So, you're going to have softness and the warmth of the Merino with the drape of the Bamboo. 

Fabulous colors in this line! We have everything from pale porcelain shades to space-dyed earth tones. This one is a really interesting brown that has almost a chestnut or auburn tint to it, so there's light and dark. This isn't a flat color. Very nice hand. There are 25 shades in all. This one is a favorite of mine, it's called Limbertwig. Then we have blues and oranges - all the colors are named after apple varieties. 

Posh Fingering is dyed in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania by a gal named Amanda. This is actually a combination that I'm going to be doing. It is called Pacifica, and this is one of their other shades called Porter. If you can see I'm swatching Porter and you can see the changes in the colors. I'm not sure what stitch it's going to be yet, but you can see how it's going to hold up. You can see the beautiful, beautiful tones with this yarn. 

There's some patterns that I've chosen for you also today to knit with Crabapple Yarns. The yarn is 448 yards per skein. Hand wash, lay flat to dry. 

The patterns I've selected are actually two categories. These are actually one skein projects that are both charted AND written. So, if you don't like to read a knitting chart, this is for you.

This one is the Shetland Trader and it's called the Aeslight Shawl Knitting Pattern and again it's a one skein project. Then, we have Thunder Moon. It's a really nice little half-crescent shawl knitting pattern. It's sort of just a shoulder covering. Beautiful! I think it would be great in one of the deeper shades of Crabapple. Again, it has written instructions.

Followed up by La Reine lace shawl knitting pattern by Angela Tong. Very, very interesting stitch pattern to this one. Again, it's a one skein project.

The other three patterns I've chosen for you today are two skein projects and they are charted patterns. Here we have the Calico Shawl by Angela Rangel. We have one that's called Atreides by Barbara Benson. It's a really interesting lace shawl knitting pattern. Atreides can actually be knitted with beads as well making it a really fancy, spectacular piece.

And now, we have the last that I've chosen. Again, it's another two skein project and charted. This one, if you can see, is an absolute show stopper. Wendell Holmes is not an undoable knitting project, but it's one that you would need to follow the chart line by line to have fabulous results. You are never going to see yourself coming and going with this pattern.

So again, Crabapple Posh Fingering Yarns by Amanda. Dyed in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. So that is our yarn for the day. It is Donna the Knitting Doctor. Please comment, like, and subscribe to the link below. Thank you so much for watching!
