New Liberty Wool Colors for January 2013

Every month from January to June we introduce two new colors of Liberty Wool. They are always gorgeous colorways, and this month’s colors are no exception.

Faded Brocade consists of reds, oranges, pinks, greys and greens. This colorway is a great way to brighten up your winter blahs.

They only thing better to chase away winter blahs is Caribbean Tidepool, which coincidentally is the name of our second January colorway. The greens and blues of this yarn will transport you to an island getaway.

Of course you will need some new patterns to go with the new colors of Liberty Wool. Right?

Liberty Wool is a great yarn for children’s sweaters (two words – washable wool); keeping that in mind, designer Tonia Barry created this adorable baby sweater. The mock cable pattern on the trim and hood is appropriate for either a boy or a girl.  

And there is still time to make a scarf for this winter. Why not try either the Diagonal Striped Scarf or our Two Direction Scarf. Both designed by Susan Mills, the patterns use the long color repeats of Liberty Wool to get the maximum effect.


Yarn Stores who subscribe to our Liberty Wool program currently have the three new patterns shown above. But what happens if you LOVE one of these patterns and your yarn store isn’t part of our program? Fear not, you will be able to download the patterns from Ravelry starting February 1 (or you can urge your LYS to take part in the subscription fun now - it's not too late for them to sign up!).


  1. my lys stated that the children's mock cable hooded sweater was available here free-can you help me? as I can't find it-thx, bonnie

    1. Hi Bonnie,

      The pattern is available on Ravelry - for $3.00.


    2. Waiting patiently NOT for the neckerchief scarf. Ready to purchase soon on Rav?

    3. Me too! Can't find the neckerchief anywhere. Can't find a LYS that even knows about the post.

  2. I love the Neckerchief Scarf too. The pattern will be available May 1 on Ravelry. In the meantime, ask your LYS if they have it. If they are a Liberty Wool Subscriber, they can give you a copy of the pattern now. If they aren't a Liberty Wool Subscriber, ask them to consider it. They get free patterns once a month from Jan. to June to share with their customers and get the newest colors of Liberty Wool when they are released.
