New Yarns

Hi folks.

If you think working in a wool shop is all sitting knitting all day, think again. You spend more time drooling over new yarns and wondering what to knit with them!!!!

Here are a couple just in ...

New! - Baby Alpaca

New from King Cole. A beautiful Baby Alpaca.

It has 100m in a 50g ball. The recommended needle size is 4mm with a tension of 22 stitches and 28 rows to 10cm.

It is 100% baby alpaca and costs £4.99 a ball.

Next is Duo Plus from Adriafil.

New! Duo Plus

It has 120m in a 50g ball. The recommended needle size is 4.5mm with a tension of 19 stitches and 26 rows to 10cm.

It is a mixture of 52% wool and 48% cotton and is handwash. It costs £3.75 a ball.

In as well are new colours of Adriafil Knit-Col. This yarn is proving really popular and no wonder. Have you tried it yet?

More new Knitcol colours!

Newsletter February 2009

Hi folks!

I'm sorry I haven't been on for a while, however the newsletter will explain.


Please bear with me while I find my legs again but I promise it won't be too long - I am still being nagged, even if it is from further afield!

New Yarns from Adriafil

Here are some bigger pictures of the yarns shown in the newsletter below.

First of all we have Globe.

Adriafil Globe

Globe has 87m in a 50g ball and costs £3.20. The recommended needle size is 4.5mm - 5.5mm.

It is a mixture of 80% wool and 2% nylon and machine washable .

Mmm ... how lovely for a pair of multi-coloured Aran socks!

Next is Rap, a lovely multi-coloured yarn , but with a more tweedy effect.

Adriafil Rap

Rap has 125m in a 50g ball and costs £3.45. The recommended needle size is 4.5mm but we think it is more of a double knitting yarn.

It is 100% merino wool and is machine washable.

Lovely for garments as well as accessories.

The third (and fourth, I suppose) is Mirage. We have solid colours and prints to match the solids. For now, we are stocking baby colours but there are loads of colours in the ranges.

Adriafil Mirage

Both have 125m in a 50g ball, with the solids costing £2.40 a ball and the prints £2.65. The recommended needle size is 4.5mm with a tension of 19 stitches and 27 rows to 10cm. Again we think it is a double knitting yarn.

It is a mixture of 50% wool and 50% acrylic and is machine washable.

Lovely for baby garments and not a bad price, considering the wool content!

Finally, we just had to get a couple of new colours in the Knitcol.
