So ... we've knitted, worn and washed a host of different DK yarns over the past few weeks in search of a new core DK to replace the now-discontinued Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK. And the results of our research are now in the shop - Lang Merino 120.
It's a pure 100% superwash merino wool and it feels fab. Better still, it washes well in the machine and it costs just £4.95 for a 120m ball. It knits to a standard DK tension and is interchangeable with any DK pattern.
There's a wonderful range of colours, including some very subtle 'melange' blends. Come
Tina called by today to show off her new quilt, made with a single jelly roll from Amy Butler and a lovely piece of Kaffe Fasset floral fabric for the backing. Hand quilting along the outline of the large flowers is keeping Tina peacefully occupied in the evenings and is producing a lovely effect on both sides of the quilt.
We were very touched to receive this sweet email from Matilda and Florence this week:
We enjoyed our morning with you and we wanted to show everyone or lovely bee.
Mummy helped us do some more felting in the afternoon and it was fun..
Thank you very much
Glorious shades of Donegal Tweed ... too hard to choose between them, so why not use as many as possible?
