Well the rain is back and the temperature had dropped. We had a fantastic summer and a lovely September but Knitting season is finally here!! Just in time as all the new stock has arrived and after a hectic week putting it all away I am pleased to be able to take a moment to tell you what’s new and exciting.
Lots of bright colours and chunky wools this season. We have new colours in the ever popular super chunky Bon Bon by Rico. This lush yarn comes in 100g balls and is 53% wool. The cost is £7.50 per ball and one ball ball makes a hat and 2 balls will make a fab snood or scarf for the winter months to come, or dare I say it, a Christmas present!!
Also from Rico is an interesting yarn called Glow worm that has a reflective strip running through it. Colours include turquoise, bright pink, orange and lime green. For the more conservative among you there is a taupe and grey colour too. Perfect for teenagers walking home in the dark or cyclists. Or just a bit of fun. Make a hat, leg warmers or wrist warmers and BE SEEN AND BE SAFE. Even make something and wrap it round a torch for a stocking filler for your little one. Who remembers having a torch under the bedclothes on Christmas morning? On the practical side it is 30% wool and sells for £6.50 per 100g ball.
From Adriafil we have new colours in the Knitcol. This is 100% Merino wool and knits to a fairisle pattern. Beautiful and reasonably priced at £3.99 per 50g ball.
Also from Adriafil we have a new line, Sierra Andina. This is 100% extra fine pure Alpaca. You have to feel it to believe it. It is the softest wool I have ever felt. Gorgeous subtle colours and sells at £5.99 for 50g. It is a 4ply wool but don’t be put off by the fineness of it as you could make a lovely pair of gloves that you would never want to take off!!
Another new one from Adriafil is Scozia. A chunky wool in tweedie colours. It is 60%wool and sells for £3.99 per 50g ball.
