Rare Gems and Pre Orders - Friday 28th June

June 27, 2019

Often in the studio we have leftover, undyed yarn that we use to try new colourway ideas or dye techniques.  The formula for the colourways are never written down, and therefore cannot be repeated.  A lot of the colours are bright and multicoulored, some are semi-solid or tonal and, as there are never more than two dyed at a time, all of them are 100% unique.  We call them our rare gems, and this week we are putting them together in curated packs of four for you to enjoy.  These packs are fabulous for fades and shawls, blankets, hats, baby items, you name it.  See below for a sneak peak at a few of our Rare Gem packs as well as a few pattern suggestions.

 

 

 

Pre Order - Winter Worsted

This week's pre-order yarn is our 100% superwash merino Winter Worsted. This is an extremely soft yarn that has been spun with a slight twist, so it knits up into a very warm, cosy fabric with lots of drape.  I recently used it to knit up a Hipster shawl (pattern by Joji Locatelli, see link below) which I highly recommend (I used the Neptune colourway).  I'm also knitting up a Weekender sweater by Andrea Mowry using this yarn as well.  Our pre-order colours this week are listed below, as are a few pattern recommendations.  Please remember that pre orders are only available to purchase for 24 hours, so you have until Saturday 9am Sydney time to place your orders.

Our u[date goes live Friday 28th June at 9am Sydney time.  I Hope you enjoy this week's update, and have a wonderful week!
