Centaurea – a new design
Showcasing Kettle Yarn Co. Northiam DK, my new Centaurea mitts are a quick project with a simple, easy to remember stitch pattern. Fun nupps and slipped stitches add extra warmth to keep your hands cosy on cold days straight through to summer.
Choose from 11 colours of super soft Northiam DK, British Bluefaced Leicester in shop. Only one 50g skein is needed to make these beauties.
Northiam works to support British wool farmers, a small batch yarn sourced, scoured, spun and dyed at British mill. Worsted spun and non-superwash, it is luscious against the skin – super soft like a fine Merino but long lasting with just enough tooth to make it divine for colourwork.
DK / 8 ply
100% Bluefaced Leicester
