New Base Giveaway!

Happy July PALers!

I’m happy to announce a new yarn base to the Play at Life Fiber Arts’ line. Yuuka (pronounced YOO-ka) is a super squishy, 3ply, SW Merino fingering weight base with 490yd in each100g Maki. It’s perfect for those looking for a machine washable yarn with a softer feel than many tightly spun and plied sock yarns.


I test knit this base and colorway with Tentaculum, a free pattern designed by Wollwerk by Simone Eich. My version ended up being over 6 ft long! I’m able to loop it around my neck twice for extra warmth. I love that it stays where I put it and the softly curly ends are perfect for fidgeting if I’ve been foolish enough to forget my knitting while I’m out and about. Tentaculum’s pattern repeat is short and easy to memorize, making it a great project for late night, possibly tipsy, tv knitting.


Yuuka Maki are making their debut in the shop on Monday, July 22nd at noon.To celebrate I’m having a giveaway. Enter below for your chance to win your own Yuuka Maki in Jack’s Lament! Rules and details on how to get extra entries are below. Good luck!
