Spring Yarns from Cascade

Cascade Yarns never disappoint when it comes to quality yarns for every season and we want to remind you of two top sellers that you should be looking for in your LYS this Spring. These superior cotton blends are affordable, versatile and available in vast array of contemporary colours. It just doesn’t get any better than that!


Hampton is a fine blend of pima cotton and linen that boasts a delicate texture and shine. The natural look of linen, paired with soft pima cotton in this DK weight yarn, makes this a yarn you will return to time and time again. Hampton is the perfect choice for Spring and Summer shawls and garments that will stand out from the crowd.

This luxurious combination of 70% pima cotton and 30% linen is cool to the touch, breathable and has exquisite drape. With an impressive 250 meters per 100g hank, only a few skeins are needed for baby knits, shawls and Spring/Summer accessories.

As with all of Cascade Yarns, free patterns are always available for download on their website. The Navarre Shawl uses only one skein of Hampton, while The Hampton Crown Capelet uses two skeins, and the Weekend In The Hamptons tank top is only three skeins!

With twenty three gorgeous rich shades to select from, your only decision will be which one to choose!



Avalon is the perfect blend of cotton and acrylic. This machine washable, worsted weight yarn has a light sheen and offers all the wonderful attributes of cotton. Available in forty solid shades and twelve coordinating multis that would make cozy, easy-care garments, accessories and home decor accents.

Perfect for those with wool allergies who are looking for a high performance, long-lasting yarn in an abundance of on-trend, ultramodern colours.

A blend of 50% cotton and 50% acrylic, Avalon is washer and dryer friendly making it the number one seller for baby garments and blankets.

The reviews on Ravelry for Avalon speak for themselves, no piling and crisp stitch definition being among the top comments. With fifteen hundred project pages, it’s easy to see why Avalon is a must have for all your Spring and Summer knitting and crochet needs.

Look for Cascade Hampton and Avalon in fine yarn shops across Canada. You won’t be disappointed!

Happy knitting and crocheting everyone!
