The Ilya Sweater is a gorgeous new collaboration design by Caitlin Hunter. The pattern will be published on November 29th on Ravelry.com and Boylandknitworks.com. Caitlin's original colour combo is available as kits for all the sizes as separate listings. If you would like to knit a similar Ilya to my test knit - use Chocolate Bark and Faded Khaki with the Neon POP kit for the colourwork. OR put together your own unique colour combo from the colour ways available on this page!
Yama Merino Linen Worsted is the even cosier version of my Merino Linen Singles. The soft ply and linen fibres give this yarn a rustic, almost handspun character. Next to skin soft and suitable for projects such as sweaters, shawls and hats. Great stitch definition for stranded colourwork projects. TIP! Hold Yama Merino Linen Singles double for creating a marled or fading colourwork yoke, with one strand of Worsted for the main body of a sweater!
Dye batches vary, please make sure to purchase enough yarn to complete your project. There are also variation within batches, please remember to alternate skeins when working on larger pieces of fabric. Variegated skeins take more effort to produce ~ those are charged for a little extra. The skeins you receive may not be the identical skeins form the photograph.

Garments can be machine washed on a gentle cycle however I recommend hand washing in cool water. Soak in a wool wash and rinse in clean water with a drop of essential oil. Roll in a towel to get the water out and dry flat. Also see “Care Instructions” under Info in the main menu.
Note that the darker saturated colourways can give off some residual dye on the hands while knitting, this is called “crocking”, read about it on the “Care Instructions” page under Info in the main menu.
See the Colour Combos tab below for colour combination ideas and to help cross reference the colourways.
