We’ve managed to find an amazing sparkly yarn which is British.
Spun in Yorkshire a whole 30 minutes from our workshop, the yarn is a bend of 96% Fine Falkland merino and 4% lurex. The lurex is the sparkly bit and what’s extra lovely about it is that it dyes – so the red yarn has red sparkles, the gold yarn has golden sparkles and so on.
It’s a really lovely yarn.
So lovely that Bobbie who is not always a fan of woolly things and almost never a fan of sparkly things has requested a hat.
The yarn is a DK weight and there are 240 meters to each 100 gram skein. Each skein is £15.00
The yarn will be coming to Fibre East with us this weekend, then will be appearing in the shop a week on Friday. I’m already thinking it would be beautiful for several of the hats in Painted Woolly Toppers – and we’ll have signed copies of the book at Fibre East and in the shop from next Tuesday.
What would you knit with soft sparkles?
