Swiss Delights Yarn Kit – Xmas ’14 edition

We are delighted to present our first ever “Swiss Delights Yarn Kit” in its Xmas ’14 edition! This kit is a cooperation between three Swiss companies, friends, working different aspects of the yarn industry: Jana from KayaLana, the designer Coralie from Stitch-N-Smile and us … Fides & Gaby from Siidegarte, the Swiss indie hand-dyer of luxurious silk-mix yarns. So, Swiss Made through and through!

This kit is the perfect Christmas present for the knitter in your life… be it your best friend, your mum, sister or Grandma… or even — how daring! — for yourself!

This exciting new “Swiss Delights Yarn Kit” contains the printed pattern as well as the yarn to knit a luxurious lace shawl. The pattern, “Myrtille,” has been designed by Coralie from Stich N’Smile especially for this kit, using our very own Siide-Fideel, the fingering weight silk-Merino yarn. Myrtille is an asymetric shawl, suitable for experienced beginners. It is being knit sidewise, starting at the tip and increasing steadily until you reach the full width and start on the lace border. Coralie will start a Myrtille Knit-Along on the Twelfth Day of Christmas in her Ravelry group… and you are cordially invited to join us, knitting, chatting and having fun creating this lovely shawl.

Together with Jana from KayaLana, we have developed an exclusive new colourway for Siide-Fideel, as inspiration for Coralie. Being exclusive, this means that this lovely new shade will not be added to our normal selection of colours. So this kit is your now-or-never chance to secure this stunning colour for your stash.

There is a limited subscription period for the “Swiss Delights Yarn Kit,” until December 15th. There are two options to choose from, either the “classic” size containing enough yarn to knit the shawl as shown in the pictures, or the “luxury” version, containing 250g of Siide-Fideel – enough to make the shawl larger or add a few accessories to it!

The kit is available exclusively through
