The New Navajo Yarn from Tahki - 6 Quick Projects Under $21!

Free pattern with purchase of Navajo yarn
The Navajo people have been known for their beautiful woven blankets and rugs for centuries.  Woven on upright looms, they typically use bold stripes and geometric designs in striking natural colors. Tahki has proudly named their newest yarn "Navajo" in honor of the Navajo fiber artists of the past and present.

The new Tahki Navajo yarn is a soft, self-striping wool blend in eight earthy colorways.  This versatile worsted weight yarn is somewhat lofty, so you can expect it to be warm, light-weight and soft to the touch.

Navajo is a single ply yarn of about half wool and half acrylic.  Because Navajo is a single ply yarn, the acrylic adds durability as well as stability to the wool.

Tahki is so excited about the new Navajo yarn that they have created six great patterns available free with the purchase of Navajo yarn.  Three of the patterns use only one ball of Navajo and the other three use just two or three balls.  At $7 a ball, you can't go wrong!  These simple projects make easy - and economical - holiday gifts!

With the purchase of Navajo yarn, you can choose from the following great patterns (pictured at right)
  1. Adult Hat with Ear Flaps
  2. Child Ear Flap Hat & Wristwarmers    
  3. Missoni-Inspired Cowl
  4. Simple Crochet Shawl
  5. Simple Knit Shawl 
  6. Women's Rosette Cloche
Navajo weaver with upright loom
Six great projects plus eight gorgeous colorways - that's 48 possibilities!  Yikes!  The most difficult task when using the new Navajo yarn will be deciding which to project to do first!

Happy Knitting . . . . Amy
