“Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?”
Well no, actually, more a storm tossed sea which, lets face it, is more in keeping with the current season. We are of course referring to our fabulous darker grey yarn which has just arrived from the mill. Storm is as sleek and sumptuous as you’d expect from us. It has a beautifully soft handle to it and has been described as feeling like spun unicorn fluff!

Which in turn matches the Hero Boot Cuffs (also in Storm Grey)

Whereas Ophira is more of a bonnet… alright, it’s knitted in Dew, but work with us on this one
A large knitting project can feel like a daunting task, but as the final words of the Bard suggests: “When in eternal lines to Time thou grow’st.” Yes, keep going and it will get done!
One of our knitting projects that is a garment, but still not too daunting, is the Bonnie Bolero. It only takes between 4 and 7 balls of yarn depending on size and at the end of it you have a knitted garment you can wear!
Bonnie was named after Bonnie the alpaca, a price winning female alpaca whom we encountered in our very first year in business at Scotland Farm, Dry Drayton. Isn’t she gorgeous?
Love Kari-Helene and Tracy
