We've been hard at work! We've got 9 new yarns, 70 new patterns and many new shades in existing yarns up onto the site! So far our most popular has been the beautiful Fleur DK in 7 Shades and with 5 patterns from Wendy yarns. Also getting a lot of praise is the self patterning Blossom Chunky in 6 Shades and with 4 patterns. It's like nothing we've seen before, in that when you knit it up it produces flower pattern without changing shades! We've tested this out with a little cardigan and are now knitting a blanket for the window.
Another interesting new yarn is Illusion DK in 7 Shades and with 3 patterns. It has striking colours on a a dark background, reminding us of an old discontinued yarn that was popular. An improvement on one of Sirdar's most fun baby yarns, Tutti Frutti comes in 6 Shades with 4 patterns.
In something that seems like a trend for this season with all the yarn companies, Sirdar has come out with 2 warm and chunky chenille yarns. Both come in 6 shades and with 4 classic patterns Firstly is the soft pastel shades of Smudge which is in contrast to the complicated and colourful Plushtweed.We are running out of space so I'll only quickly mention our other new yarns. There's Wendy's new chennile Firecracker, Sirdar's chunky version of their popular Harrap Tweed and the fun Wash Knit.
