3 New Yarns From Rico!!

Knitwits Yarns

Well, it's that time of year again - start of the new school year, end of the summer (what summer?!), start of the really busy pre-Christmas knitting season (although some of you have started already) and time for the arrival of more lovely new yarns!

This time we've had a delivery in from Rico with 3 new yarns.  The first is Can Can Disco - the latest in the Can Can family, Disco is multi coloured and sparkly!  It also comes in 100g balls now so 1 ball makes exactly one scarf:

We all need a bit of sparkle to cheer up our autumns!!

Don't forget - if you want a bit of subtle sparkle in a chunky, quick-to-knit scarf yarn we still have some balls of Rico's Liesl:

We then have "Nature", which is a lovely mix of acrylic with wool and alpaca and knits as a standard DK.  The yardage is really terrific - 233 metres to just 50g - that's even better than Stylecraft's Life! - so most garments will come out of 5-6 balls.  The palate is muted, in line with this autumn/winter's trends:

Finally, we have "Country" - similar in make up to "Nature", Country is an Aran weight yarn, again has a terrific yardage (187 metres to 50g) and, again, comes in a muted, on-trend palate:

The only thing to do now is choose the next project!!
