The yarn updates are coming thick and fast now so with no further ado allow me to introduce Keswick Aran! As you may be able to guess from the name this is the same tweedy Merino yarn we have had in fingering and DK weight but in aran weight. If you have tried either of the other weights you will know that it is lovely soft Superwash Merino with donegal neps in cream, brown and black throughout. I love this blend so much and dyeing it is super-fun. On lighter colourways the darker neps show through and on darker colourways the lighter neps are more prominent. It just adds another exciting dimension to the yarn and really inspires my creativity. This yarn went live on the website on Friday but we have some stock still available. Colours in the images are Woodland, Faded Bloom and Slate.
The week before we added some Askham 4ply to the website to support the release of ViTalina Craft’s Lacystorm Sweater pattern which you can find on Payhip and Ravelry. Askham 4ply is a luxurious blend of baby alpaca and silk which some will remember from our mill dyed range of the same name. Now it is only available as a hand dyed yarn and we have a really nice selection available on the website. Colours shown in the images are Cloudberry, Scorched Moors and Meadow Rue. You will also find our Festive Fun colourway available on both Pendle Chunky and Nateby 4ply, these are likely to be the last batches of this colourway for 2020 so don’t leave it too late if you want to add a skein or two to your stash.
Over on the blog you will find a post about Christmas posting dates. If you are thinking of ordering but want items to arrive before Christmas please take a look at the blog post and allow plenty of time! There is also a new Shedcast up on the Eden Cottage Yarns YouTube channel so please do check that out.
