The lovely Abby of Luxury Yarns recently sent over a beautiful parcel full of gorgeous yarn samples. Scrumptious silk and cashmere yarns and a sweet chocolate golden heart – thanks Abby!
I love the colour fluency of the Manos Del Uruguay (Alegria) yarn.
Alegria is a wonderfully soft hand painted machine washable sock yarn that is perfect for many other projects as well. It comes in 12 stunning colour mixes and a pattern booklet that has 13 original patterns, all of which only use 1 skein. As with all Manos Del Uruguay yarns there are no dyelots and each skein is unique and signed by the women who made it. As such if you are using more than one skein they recommend knitting using 2 hanks alternately.
How spectacularly colourful are the Symfonie Wood range of crochet hooks & knitting needles!
If you’ve been looking for a delectable yarn for your next baby knit, then look no further! Di Lusso Baby is so very soft and utterly scrumptious.
Di Lusso (meaning Luxury in Italian) is made from 100% cashmere and as such it is buttery soft, and is perfect for even the most delicate skins and makes wonderful heirloom knits. I have created this yarn as a ‘baby/sport/5ply’ weight which is between a DK and a 4Ply. It can be knitted on anything from a 3.25 – 4mm needle and works perfectly with all patterns created for Debbie Bliss’ Baby Cashmerino.
