Shop Update: New hues in DK!

October 06, 2017

Yarns shown from top left: Beyul Rhubarb, Boysenberry, Islington DK Sangria, Beyul Fleur, Balsam, Yurt.

This week’s shop update is all about thicker, warmer yarns. I’ve got two new colours and some restocked hues in Islington DK and Beyul DK. The two blends can easily be used together as they are exactly the same thickness.

First new huw is Islington DK in autumnal Sangria. Perfect with restocked  neutrals Nutkin and Squirrelly, this hue is – a rich oxblood.

Also new this week, but in the Beyul baby Yak, silk, Merino blend is Fleur – a gentle blush pink, more saturated than Balsam. You can see the two side by side above to get a sense of how lovely they’d work as an ombre with Yurt.

Restocked this week from top left above:
Islington fingering and DK Nutkin, Kingfisher, DK Blighty and Beyul fingering and DK Delft.

I’ve added a listing on the shop this week to let you pre-order skeins of Waltham Aran greys, Peaky Blinder and silver Graveney. Waltham is spun from the softest non-superwash British Bluefaced Leicester for knits that will last you decades.

Here are some brilliant Waltham designs to keep you warm this winter! From left: Paulina Popiolek’s lush cardi-coat Kodiak, my Brynja cardigan, glorious warm All I want by Joji Locatelli and the versatile huge of a cardi, Angelus Novus by Renée Callahan.

I’ve decided to sell this weight on pre-order only and will be making it available when I can. The listing will only be open until the end of October, so get it now to avoid disappointment.
