Marvellous Merino in many forms

Our next hand-dyed yarn update goes live on our website, www.edencottageyarns.com, on Saturday 16th of February at 8 p.m. UK time. Yarns included will be: Pendle 4ply and Pendle Chunky (both 100% Superwash Merino), Brimham 4ply minis (85% Superwash Merino, 15% nylon) and Nateby 4ply rainbow 🌈 minis (75% Superwash Merino, 20% nylon, 5% silver Lurex).

Pendle 4ply is a gorgeous, smooshy, soft, bouncy and smooth superwash merino yarn, which has great stitch definition. It is perfect for a wide variety of projects, although may be too soft for socks (or you may want to reinforce heels and toes with nylon thread held alongside the yarn).

Pendle Chunky is a smooshy, soft, warm, bouncy and smooth superwash merino yarn, which has great stitch definition making it perfect for a wide variety of projects, especially those winter woollies.

Brimham 4ply is a soft and bouncy sock yarn. The extrafine Merino Wool is the same quality as you will find in our other Merino-blend yarns with the addition of nylon making it especially hard wearing if it’s going to be well-worn and washed a lot. It’s great for a really wide range of projects, especially socks, and being machine washable (at 40 degrees or less) makes it very practical. This update consists of mini skeins of Brimham 4ply which are ideal for adding contrast colours to projects or for those times that a full skein is too much (apparently this is a thing…🤷‍♂️).

Also in this update we have sparkly rainbow sets of our Nateby 4ply mini skeins, which have been used in the Rainbow Smiles Sweater pattern by Dora. These would be perfect for any multicoloured project with the subtle sparkle adding an extra touch of luxury while also being highly practical owing to the nylon content.

All the colours available in the update will be posted in the Facebook event page and a Flickr album so that you can plan your purchases. We have something for everyone, so don’t hesitate as yarns can sell very quickly.

So many indie dyers. One email.
