With Stra—named for the Danish word for ‘straw’—Woolfolk blends an elegant construction with a delicately rustic texture. This DK-weight yarn is half linen and half Ovis 21 Ultimate Merino (the trademarked wool born of a special partnership with Patagonian ranchers, the Nature Conservatory, and the outdoor retailer Patagonia Inc.). Stra’s chainette construction keeps this clever yarn airy and elastic—perfect for the in-between days of spring and fall.
Former architect Kristin Ford learned to knit from her grandmother, Katherine Temple Woolfolk. When she launched her yarn company a few years ago, how could she name it anything else? Kristin’s Danish roots are evident in everything from her design sensibility (“wearable, clean, and minimal”) to her beautiful color sense.
