Danish Yarn

During a visit to Copenhagen, I enjoyed a visit to Uldstedet on Fiolstræde, where I got this beautiful yarn created by a Danish fiber artist Karen Noe.  The yarn is Rustik Naturgarn, Kobber.  It’s composed of a gray and white noil silk single plied with mercerized cotton thread in copper brown and moss green.  I knitted this up into a scarf that I gave to my sister-in-law.  I later used the swiss darning technique to decorate a black stocking cap with the same yarn so my sister-in-law would have a coordinated set.  The feel of this yarn made it a pleasure to work with, and the colors reminded me of Copenhagen.
