New Yarn Bases!
Hi there! How are you doing? I hope that, like me, you’re beginning to feel like the end is in sight and some sort of normality is slowly returning to the world. Between getting my first dose of vaccination this weekend, and some yarn festivals tentatively planning to go ahead in the autumn , I’m definitely feeling my spirits start to lift.
All of which has helped kickstart my creativity, and I’m very excited to share my new yarn bases with you!
|First up is this fabulous, 100% recycled cotton. It is great for a wide range of projects, from cushion covers and scrubbies, to clothes and accessories. The yarn is very similar in looks and feel to yarns such as DROPS bomull-lin (which is a linen/cotton blend). It doesn’t have the smooth, shiny look of new cotton. This gives it a gorgeous matt texture and stops it from being a slippery yarn to work with. It is an aran or worsted weight yarn so works up quite quickly, making it ideal for quick projects.|

DK weight Tencel
The yarn Gods have finally listened to my plea to create a heavier weight Tencel yarn, and here it is in all its lustrous glory! As fabulously soft, shiny and drapey as the 4 ply version, these 100g skeins are DK (double knit) weight, and measure 225m each. This yarn is perfect for all your summery knits, from tank tops and tees to lightweight jumpers and shawls. But don’t discount it for cooler weather knits too, Tencel has excellent thermoregulation properties, keeping you cosy in winter as well as cool in summer.
For this first batch I have 80 skeins available, in 36 gorgeous dye lots. Whilst some of the lots are large enough for sweater quantities, most only have 2 skeins, so if you would like help putting together your ideal palette for your project then please just ask!
You can get yours here.
|Oh, and there’s one more new yarn base still to come, but I’m not finished dyeing it all yet! It’s a fabulous aran weight Pima cotton, which I will share with you when it is available in the shop.|
