Fawn-ing over Satsuma!

August 10, 2018

Thinking a lot about transitional knits and layers this week as the heatwave in the UK has broken for a few days. This week sees citrusy Persimmon in Islington Bluefaced Leicester/ Silk restocked in both fingering and DK weights and I’ve been dreamig of a Lotta by Marie Greene, like Fabienne’s vivacious Persimmon version below, especially as it will make such a perfect winter layer over a shirt. Just imagine this vibrant, happy orange in the grey depths of winter!

Fabienne is carrying some of my yarns in her shop if you happen to be in Ollon, Switzerland! Find her atTricoton.ollon on Instagram.
I’ve dyed a new Hythe kid Mohair/ Silk to pair with Persimmon – Satsuma– a matching zesty orange with cool undertones. Satsuma is a beautiful bright hue that will liven up other warm colours like Copper and Hawthorne.

Shown from above right: YurtBronzeBrassRhubarb.
Shown from above left: Islington CopperNutkinSquirrelly and Light Squirrelly.

Some of you might have noticed gentle Fawn also join the Hythe paddock over the last few weeks.The perfect neutral taupe, this hue will match seamlessly with Islington Squirrelly and will pair beautifully with the other neutrals shown above. This kid Mohair/ silk is the softest you’ll ever feel, soft and warm against the skin. I don’t particularly like the usual grades of Mohair yarns available so sourced the softest possible. Give it a try.

Find all the yarns in shop and enjoy the sun while it lasts!
