The Kettle Yarn Co, run by indie dyer Linda Lencovic, has launched a luxurious new yarn, Islington DK. This heavier version of its popular Islington base is a blend of 55% Bluefaced Leicester wool and 45% silk, and
comes in skeins of 100g/212m/232yds. Itâ€™s available in a gorgeous selection of semi-solid colours and for the bi-craftual amongst you (those who both knit and crochet!), thereâ€™s an accompanying â€œBoardwalk Collectionâ€ of knitting patterns by top designers.
Kettle Yarn Co yarns are hand-dyed in the UK using fibres sourced from ethical mills to ensure high standards of animal welfare and a low carbon footprint, and are extensively tested to be both low pilling and long wearing, so your hard work will stand the test of time.
Â£19 a skein, www.kettleyarnco.co.uk
