British Thr-ewe and Thr-ewe

So many pretty shades…

This collection of yarn has been specifically commissioned and designed by Susan Crawford, the diligent genius behind A Stitch in Time and currently working on A Stitch in Time Vol 2… Excelana Yarns are fleeced and spun in the UK with the colours inpired by a 1930s shade card. You can read about its provenance and the process in more detail here…

At £4.99 for a 50g ball, it’s about right for a luxe yarn and, though only available in 50g balls at the moment, I’m sure, with the enough interest, the range will be expanded to DK and beyond…Buy it in great big bucketfulls here

And then get them worked together in the MOST AMAZING fair isle…
