For Day Five of My Favorite Wooly Things Event, I thought I would introduce something especially wooly!

What do you think of when you think of New Zealand? Beautiful green landscapes? Orcs and hobbits?

I think of beautiful, soft merino wool.

Allow me to introduce my friend, Kenzie. Kenzie is Hikoo’s wonderful worsted weight yarn that holds a deep ocean of secrets.

Well, it’s not actually that mysterious. Kenzie starts out with soft and bouncy 50% New Zealand merino and 25% nylon for added durability. So far, so good in my book.

But here’s where Kenzie takes an interesting turn. Let’s add in a little alpaca for some additional softness. And how about some angora, which adds a subtle halo without muddying your stitches? And let’s top things off with a smidgen (the technical term) of silk noils to create a gorgeous tweed effect.

This yarn is a pleasure to work with and it will turn into some of your favorite to wear garments and accessories.

If you like tweed as much as I do, I think you’ll be besties with Kenzie too!
