Bold And Bright

March 22, 2017

This week it's all about rich, saturated colour!  We have been dyeing up a storm of bright and bold colours on Top Draw Sock and Merino Cashmere.  These include all of our new release colourways: Speckled Mint (see above), Cosmic Dust, Moonlight Drive, Spice Market and another new colour, Dandelion.

 

 

If you're a yarn club member, you might recognise the name?  Dandelion features a similar colour with a few minor adjustments to the way the dye has been applied.  It has lots of rust, yellow and navy speckles and it pairs beautifully with our semi-solid In The Navy. 

 

 

Colour Combinations

Speaking of colour combinations, this week we put a few combos together using our in-stock and upcoming sock yarns in order for you to see what they look like as a trio.  These won't be sold as kits, so you'll need to buy each skein separately, but it'll give you a good idea as to how they look together.  Here they are!

 

 

From the top left
  • Speckled Mint + Ice On A Windowpane + In The Navy
  • Dandelion + Paw Paw + In The Navy

  • Blush Crush + Paparazzi + Love Buzz
  • Glee + Moonlight Drive + Sterling
  • Spice Market + Citrine + In The Navy

We will be highlighting colour combos each week to help you select colours for those beautiful tri-coloured shawls.  Of course, if you ever need advice on which colours or yarns to choose, you can always contact us. 

 

 

Sweater-Weight Yarns

After lots of emails pleading us to offer more sweater-weight yarns, we have finally decided to make these weights available in EVERY update.  These yarns will of course be dyed in sweater quantities so you can grab all your yarn from the same dye lot in one single swoop.  This week we have our Voyage DK on offer in a variety of colours.  If you're a sweater knitter and have a hankering for a certain yarn or colourway, please let us know over on our Ravelry Wish List thread.  We always try to fulfill all wishes :)

This week's update is on Friday 24th March at 9am AEDT!  Click here to check it out.

Have a wonderful week,

The Skein Team xxoo
