Bugga! Bundles of Spring

With each changing season, the natural landscape brings new inspiration for color creation. Springtime on the Eastern Shore of MD is pretty magical with everything newly blooming like magnolia and cherry trees. The local farmer's market reopens with the fantastic colors of heirloom agriculture. And after every spring shower, the rain makes the budding trees appear that much more verdant. 

For the new season, we've created 5 Spring color combos and are offering them in bundles of yarn. Each bundle includes 5 skeins, in which each skein range in weight from 1-4 ounces of your favorite Bugga! - 70% superwash Merino wool/ 20% Mongolian cashmere/ 10% nylon blend. A Bugga! Bundle is approximately 1533 yards/1 pound of luscious sport weight yarn. 

Bugga! Bundles are put together in coordinating color combinations, which can be used altogether or mixed and matched for a variety of projects. Because each bundle is a pound, but the skeins will vary in weight, it's a little bit of an exciting knitting adventure. There are so many great patterns from intricate stranded color work to fun striped socks. Here are some of our favorites:

Try simple Vanilla Latte Socks or a Flowery Cowl by Wollgefuhl in a Bundle of Heirloom Carrots.

A light weight version of Grey Sparrow by Clara Falk or Jen by Josee Paquin is perfect for a Bundle of Sweet Rain. 

We'd love to see how a Bundle of Cherry Blossoms knits up in Lophelia by Laura Aylor or Colorwork Baby Pullover by Susan Mills.
