    Lorna's Laces Solemate

    Lorna's Laces Solemate is a sock weight yarn made from 55% superwash merino wool, 15% nylon and 30% Outlast, a rayon fiber technology that continuously interacts with a body's microclimate to moderate temperature from being too hot or too cold. Solemate is very soft to work with, and has some great spring to it! Fabric knit from Solemate is smooth and comfy.

      I accidently reviewed another Lorna's Lace yarn,Sportmate. I am using this yarn, Soulmate, it's fabulous. I'm making a shawl. I tend to knit tightly, from making socks, so I had to go up a size on my needles. But that's ok. Not the yarns fault.
      The colorway of Rockwell is different from the pic here. Actually, it's prettier in person.LOL, I love this yarn. Better that the Tosh type by far. Right up there with Sweet Georgia.

      I'm hoping it lives up to their claim of warm in cool weather; cool in warm weather. We'll see.

      WEBS is prompt in sending you your yarn and if it's on back order they keep you informed of when it's shipped.

      This may be my go to yarn site from now on.

      I like the colorway. It didn't work well for the project I had in mind, but that happens sometimes when you're ordering online. It has a nice hand and good stitch definition. I'll use it for a different project for sure.

        I used this yarn for socks and they knit up beautifully using wooden needles. The yarn is soft and pleasantly slippery to knit with. The color ways came out in pretty random patterns.

                        Soft beautiful cowl

                        from Old Orchard Beach, Maine

                        Comments about Lorna's Laces Solemate:

                        I made the most beautiful cowl with "L" a dark magenta colorway. It's so soft and squishy. Lovely is another good word to describe it. And it does keep you warm even though it's not heavy at all. Light as a feather. I get so many compliments. Drape is perfect too. Use it for socks, shawls, hats,cowls, scarves. None better in my opinion.

                        Excellent customer service, Prompt delivery and packed nicely.

                        This yarn is fabulous to work with; it does not split, and the needles glide through even the most tight, twisty manouvers. As well, it does pill or fuzz up. I recommend this yarn to all sock knitters and I'll be definitely buying it again.
                        I do wish this yarn was available in solid colors, my only mild complaint.

                            I use it for Sweaters and socks. In my area, you can shiver in the morning and roast in the afternoon - this yarn bridges the gap. Great colors and stitch definition, very soft on the hands.

                              I tried to use this for a scarf and abandoned it. It would be good for socks but not soft enough for a scarf and I don't like such short colors changes.

                                I wanted to knit a scarf with this, but due to the short color repeats it did not lend itself to this use. You need to use lace needles with this yarn, and it would probably make lovely socks.
