Shop Update 17.04.15

This week is all about 2 news yarns which were spun for us by John Arbon.

I blogged about the different sheep wools in these yarns yesterday, so today is all about the colour.

First up is the 4ply British wool and Alpaca. It’s a blend of 50% Polworth, 40% Alpaca and 10% Zwartables – and it’s the Zwartables which gives it it’s lovely heathered silver appearance. This is a gorgeously soft yarn which I’d be happy to have next to my skin, and I’m already looking at colours for a sweater. We’re going to be offering the undyed yarn too, so you’ve got the option of a gorgeous neutral to build colours against.

Each skein is 100g / 400m and costs £15. The undyed skeins are £10.

Then yarn number 2 – this time a 100% British wool. The yarn is a blend of 50% Polworth and 50% Wensleydale, so it has an amazing combination of softness and shine. This yarn really grans dye, so it lends itself to glowingly bright colours.

Each skein is 100g / 400m and costs £15. The undyed skeins are £10.
