The shades are “Seascape”, turquoise greens, and “Lavender Garden”, pinks and lilacs with a dash of silver sage, both subtle blends of pastels, ideal for spring and summer projects.
Willow Knits is owned and run by Anne Scahill, an artisan dyer with ten years’ experience, and the yarns are available both online at www.willowknits.etsy.com and at UK shows. Anne says “I started out because I couldn’t buy what I wanted and it’s grown from there. I love the creativity involved in dyeing and that you don’t quite know how a new colourway is going to turn out.
I’ve never had any real disasters, but many of my most popular shades have started out as happy accidents!” January.
The yarn is worsted weight, between DK and Aran, and comes in 100g skeins, each of about 200m. Anne says “There are no knots or slubs in my yarns, because I remove them at the skeining stage. At the most there is one join. I don’t want my customers to have any nasty surprises when using my yarn!” A 4mm or 3.5mm hook is ideal for most projects.
