The shades are â€œSeascapeâ€, turquoise greens, and â€œLavender Gardenâ€, 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 yearsâ€™ experience, and the yarns are available both online at www.willowknits.etsy.com and at UK shows. Anne says â€œI started out because I couldnâ€™t buy what I wanted and itâ€™s grown from there. I love the creativity involved in dyeing and that you donâ€™t quite know how a new colourway is going to turn out.
Iâ€™ve never had any real disasters, but many of my most popular shades have started out as happy accidents!â€ January.
The yarn is worsted weight, between DK and Aran, and comes in 100g skeins, each of about 200m. Anne says â€œThere are no knots or slubs in my yarns, because I remove them at the skeining stage. At the most there is one join. I donâ€™t want my customers to have any nasty surprises when using my yarn!â€ A 4mm or 3.5mm hook is ideal for most projects.
