Here are some bigger pictures of the yarns shown in the newsletter below.
First of all we have 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.
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.
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.
Have you tried this yet? Customers who have bought it once have always come back for more!
Nan is supposed to be finishing some UFO's over Christmas but there may be a change of plans!!
We are awaiting a Rico delivery and as soon as that comes we will post details.
