Sparkle and Shine

We have a bumper update this week that includes our newest base 1 ply Lace (seen above in the Whisper colourway), as well as MCN Sock, Merino Silk Sport and Shimmer!

Firstly lets talk new colourways!  This week we added a luscious new purple called Autumn Plum.

 

 

This is a rich tonal colourway that has various shades of plum purple.  This week we have dyed Autumn plum onto our 1ply Lace. 

We have also decided to bring back an old colourway called Lemongrass.

 

 

This colourway is a randomly dyed variegated colour: it will knit up in tones of rich pistachio and apple green with splashes of lemon and amber. Lemongrass would look wonderful paired with a warm neutral or purple, and of course it would look amazing on its own!  Dyed onto our sparkle base, Lemongrass just glistens!

Apart from the new colourways, we have plenty of all the popular colours ready and waiting!  We've had lots of requests for Dandelion, In the Navy, Moonlight Drive and Spice Market, all of which are in store.  And, don't forget, if you are after a certain colour please let us know!

 

 

Sweater Yarns!

This week's sweater yarn is Merino Silk Sport. This is a great transitional yarn for those in between seasons.  If you're wanting to knit a light cardigan, pullover or short sleeve top then this is your yarn!  The silk and merino blend produces a beautifully soft and drapey fabric which is very lovely to knit. Anyone who has knit with this yarn will tell you how amazing it is!  We have a ton of colours all dyed in sweater quantities for this week's update. 

Our update is on Friday 7th April at 9am AEST (please note we are no longer in Daylight Savings Time)!  Don't forget to head on over to the shop to check it out :D

 

 

Sweater KAL

We are hosting a sweater KAL over on our Ravelry group!  It is on right now and goes through to August 31, giving you plenty of time to organise your yarn, find a pattern and knit along with us!  Any garment you want to knit is fine, whether it's a pullover, cardigan or short-sleeve tank just as long as you use mostly Skein yarn.  We do have a prize of a sweater's worth of yarn in the winner's choice of base and colour up for grabs to all who complete their garment within the time frame.  We would also love to see everyone's WIPs and FO, so please tag your pics with #skeinsweaterkal .  Come on over to the group and join in the fun. 

Have a wonderful week!

The Skein Team xxoo
