Yorkshire Yarnfest - Sept 19 2020
Thanks for joining me again this morning for my live feed on @yorkshireyarnfest's account. If you missed the episode, I've saved my segment to my highlights and you can watch it on @kettleyarnco.
I've dyed two special colourways for the 'autumn leaves theme' for Yorkshire Yarnfest. I wanted to do something a bit different from typical orange, so took my inspiration from the rich patinas the leaves develop after lying on the forest floor.
There are only a few skeins of each colour in shop. I'll show you both skeins in the 'flesh' on Saturday, along with things to knit with them. The rich purple is in Twist - high-twist BFL perfect for socks, and the DK is Beyul in a new colour I am calling Amulet. Find both in shop now while stocks last.
I decided to focus on Beyul DK for this show and give you a glimpse of some samples in the blend!
Beyul combines the best of 3 fibres – the gentle halo of high quality Yak down, a subtle shimmer from silk, and the bouncy goodness of the softest superwash Merino. This blend is truly a dyer’s dream, taking dye with an intoxicating richness that takes your breath away.
Sold in 100 grams skeins with 212 meters ( 232 yards) each, this weight can be used as a straight DK or to get gauge for sport projects. You can even hold it double with Hythe kid silk for Aran/Worsted weight designs!
Here are the samples I went through this morning:
Maleme by Meiju Kallio-Peltoniemi, colour Steppe.
Allium by Renée Callahan, colour Monk's Robe.
Liminal Shawl by Andrea Mowry, colour Iceberg.
Sharman by Bristol Ivy in Iceberg.
