I would like to show you some yarns that have just arrived from Rico in Germany. Rico is more well known in Britain for embroidery goods but in Europe they are massive in embroidery and knitting yarn.
To whet your whistle we have chosen just a few yarns but we think we have chosen well.
This is the Rico Baby Classic and it is yummy soft.
It has 165m in a 50g ball. The recommended needle size is 3.5mm - 4mm with a tension of 22 stitches and 28 rows to 10cm.
It is a mixture of 50% acrylic and 50% polyamide.
Baby Classic costs £2.10/50g. The colours in stock are tradtional baby colours: cream, pink and red. Red? Actually we ordered blue. Lost in translation?
Next up is Rico Baby Lolly-pop. Check out this funky baby yarn ....
Lolly-pop has 100m in a 50g skein. The recommended needle size is 4mm with a tension of 22 stitches and 28 rows to 10cm.
It is a mixture of 50% viscose and 50% acrylic.
Lolly-pop costs £2.10/50g and in stock we have three colourways: pinky, bluey and multi.
