Yearn Worthy Yarn: Sirdar Just Soya (U.K.)

Here’s another entry into the eco-friendly yarn field, again from Sirdar. I’ve already covered Sirdar’s Eco Wool, but this yarn is plant based. Just Soya is a lovely little yarn made from 100% soybean fibers.

Generally softer than cotton, Just Soya is another great summer yarn. It is silky, smooth and comes in DK weight. Perhaps a summer shawl or tank would be perfect to whip up in this yarn.

Soy is another one of those plants that grows fast and requires less water for its production. It is also great in that like hemp, it puts nutrients back into the soil.

Just Soya comes in seven subdued yet wonderful colors. I am especially partial to Jamberry and Soya Blue. Which do you prefer?
