Emilia & Philomène – Adelina



Feel like putting a bit of luxury on your needles? The beautiful Adelina by Emilia & Philomène might be your next yarn crush!

Between the yack blend and its unique colours, there are actually reasons to bring joy to your fingers and your eyes. Let’s talk a bit about what best defines Emilia & Philomène: the colours. Amélie, the dyer / artist behind this brand, has the eye of a painter and has developped a palette that could directly comes from a masterpiece.

The yack blended in this yarn is lightly shading the colours of this palette. Indeed, yack fiber is not white, or off white. It is rather a kind of greige (meaning between grey and beige). So, using the same colour “recipe” on this yarn will create a slightly greying version of the colour, more sombre. Adelina is still as beautiful as any other yarn of the brand. It simply has a deepest colour, highlighted by the soft halo and sheen of the yack.

Plus, blending yack fiber with merino gives a very soft yarn, and the small amount of nylon just brings the necessary resistance to make it a long-lasting yarn. You can even knit socks with it!
