Working with Wool in the Summer

Knit and crochet with wool in the summer

Summer is here and when you are on the go, make sure to bring your Mountain Meadow Wool yarn and projects with you! The projects you start today will be the ones you reach for in the fall and winter, for yourself or as gifts. Today we'd like to remind you that yes, you can work with wool in the summer!

Ravelry projects knit in Mountain Meadow Wool yarns

If you will be working inside with the air-conditioning on, you may welcome a pile of wool in your lap for a blanket or a sweater. Smaller projects including socks, mittens, cowls, hats, and shawls are easy to keep by your side and have the added bonus of being portable! This round-up of Ravelry projects are great examples. Shown above, clockwise from top: Pamfischer's Metronome in Mountain Meadow Wool Mountain Down Sport, moclell's Best.Socks.Ever in Mountain Meadow Wool Tweed Pumice, and porterhaas' Butterfly Mariposa Mittens in Mountain Meadow Wool Jackson.
