Our next update is Oakworth 4ply and it will be live on the website on Friday 21st February at midday UK time! This is a big bumper update with plenty of colours to choose from and is in support of a special pattern release — read on for more information about this.
Oakworth 4ply is our New Zealand Polwarth yarn, if you want to read more about the incredible sheep it comes from we have a blog post about it on our website. This yarn is a bit underrated in my opinion – it’s soft, hardwearing, and has good stitch definition – so I am delighted for it to be featured, and I hope you’ll give it a try. 🥰
The Blossoming Sweater (which is absolutely gorgeous by the way!) by Rachel Illsley of Unwind Knitwear is being released on Friday and calls for Oakworth 4ply (funnily enough!). We will have plenty of stock in the original colours used by Rachel for the design – Driftwood and Briar Rose. However, I’ve also dyed a wide range of other semi-solid colourways so that you can play with your own colour combinations; PLUS there are a handful of lovely variegated colourways, just because. 🙂 Rachel is offering a 15% discount off the price of the pattern until Monday 24th February and there will be a KAL running for this design in the Unwind Knitwear group on Ravelry, too.
