It's almost update time, our favourite part of the week! This week, we have two of our popular sock yarns Uptown Sock (seen above in the colourways Knight and Autumn Plum) as well as our sparkly sock Shimmer (seen below in the colourways Paparazzi and Peace). We've also doubled the amount of colourways on offer, giving you plenty of colours to choose from!
Also this week, we have two sweater bases available, MCN DK and Merino Silk Sport! Firstly, let's talk about MCN DK. As it's been a while since we had this yarn in store, I had forgotten how beautifully it dyes up (and how soft it feels!). This luscious yarn would make beautiful sweaters, cardigans and hats. It has a touch of cashmere, giving it a hint of luxury and the merino-nylon blend makes this yarn very easy to wear and wash. We've also revived an old colourway called Storm (see below), which is a deep grey with a hint of purple and an overwash of brown; it really looks stunning on this base.
As mentioned, we also have Merino Silk Sport. This lovely yarn is great for shawls as it has a beautiful drape and sheen. It's also wonderful for lightweight cardigans and sweaters that are perfect for Spring/Autumn temperatures. This yarn is one of our oldest bases, and accordingly is a testament to how much we and our customers love it!
This week's update will be in store Friday 19th May! Hope you enjoy :D
