Spotlight on Kraemer Yarns: Fountain Hill
When we browse knitting and crochet patterns, we’re noticing mohair laceweight yarn is still having a moment. Whether you use it single-strand, or held together with another yarn, there are so many patterns in which this yarn shines! Kraemer Yarns Fountain Hill is an affordable luxury yarn that deserves extra attention!
Fountain Hill is an 80% acrylic and 20% mohair yarn. It has an airy loft and lovely halo to make elegant garments in many different gauges. The colorways noted as Lights have bits of glittery fiber for a little extra pizzazz; Deep Rust Lights is shown above.
Beth has been on a Stephen West kick and knit several of the Westknits patterns using Fountain Hill. Each skein has approximately 560 yards per skein, providing plenty of yardage! Shown above is the Exploration Station in Pewter Lights, Salmon, Surf's Up, and Blink Fountain Hill. Currently on her needles is Shawlography in Blink, Taffy Lights, Marjoram, Brushed and Deep Rust.
What other patterns could you pair with Fountain Hill? Here are just a few on our list: (top row left to right) Keswick, Rock It Tee, Marin Ruana (crochet with Tatamy DK), and The Age of Brass + Steam Kerchief (bottom).
