Kemp-Corn Fiber Yarn?

How does it feel? Is it like cotton or bamboo? Is it woven like the SWTC Bamboo? The colors are very pretty! This Iowa girl wants to knit with corn!

perk corn? eeeeeeeeeeeenteresting… :thinking:

:shock: OMGOODNESS :shock: I didn’t even know that the a-maizing was in stores…I MUST get some :cheering: :cheering:

woah that sounds interesting. I MUST find a place here in the UK that has all that stuff - bamboo, soy silk etc etc - I want to feel it all up!

BTW another note that Kemp rocks =D Just bought stretchy needles from Diva Knitting Store =D

Yes, she does :thumbsup:
Oh, you will LOVE soysilk, bamboo…all of SWTC yarns…my very, very, very fave yarns!! Can’t wait to try the corn yarn :smiley:

Ooo that sounds so interesting …I want to try it. That gives me another excuse to go to Kemp’s store…as if I need excuses. :rollseyes: And yes, her store is great!

I’ve tried to spin soy silk before. Man, it’s hard to do!

:roflhard: I just had to go feel it up again after reading this! It is nice and soft…more of a flat yarn though like a ribbon. It seems like it would drape really nice. I can’t wait to try it. This is as close up I as I could get without too much blur.

I only have the color “Aidan” right now. The other ones I ordered are supposed to come next week. You can see all the colors at SWTC under new yarns. I will probably be placing another with them very soon so if anyone has special requests for colors, quantity, etc. please let me know.

ooooooooooooooooo i want to knit with corn!!!

ME TOO!!! :frowning:

Thanks, Kemp! That’s so purty!! :inlove:

That is just beautiful! I wish I could reach through the screen and feel it… it looks so soft. :heart:

how creepy would it be if people really could do that! :shock:

sorry just scary thought off on a tangent for a moment :rofling:

WOW…ehhh, that is just TOOOO CREEPY!!!

lol this is what i am saying! I don’t know how many times i have said the same thing and it never struck me but just in that moment i had an “aaack” moment…lol

how creepy would it be if people really could do that! :shock:

OMGosh! You’re right. I suddenly feel as though I should be grounded w/no tv for a week. :wink:

I ordered two skeins of the corn yarn from Kemp yesterday. I have no idea what I’ll make with it…but I couldn’t resist. Of course I couldn’t go to her store and order just one thing, so I’m also getting some Opal and some divalicious handpainted yarn. :happydance: Now if only I could knit 24 hours a day, I’d have time to use it all. :rollseyes:

:roflhard: or have about eight hands!

I forgot to mention this corn stuff is machine wash/dry!!!

I keep going back to look at it. And I’ve looked at the colors that are coming in later in the month. And I’ve looked at all the colors offered on the manufacturer’s website. I think I really want some of this stuff!!

My only problem is that I have no idea what to make with it! What’s the weight? Are there any patterns that would work well for it?

Ok, off to drool over it some more. :slight_smile:

It’s sport to DK weight, 6 sts and 8 rows = 1" on US 7 I think it would make an awesome summer tank, great baby stuff and since it’s washable…I’m even thinking of trying it for some socks.
