  • Honey Sunrise – Nene 4 Ply 100g

    £22.00
    One of those magical, otherworldly sunrises inspired this colourway. Honey coloured autumn leaves were hanging over the canalside and the pink, violet, and blue sky was reflected in the water. Stunning. The yarn is gently variegated and that makes it a lot of fun to work with because every stitch is different. The colours blend beautifully in the finished project as you can see in the knit and crochet samples. You can use this for textured as well as simple patterns.

    On The Cut – Nene 4 Ply 100g

    £18.00
    The Cut is an old boating term for the canal, because it is cut (or dug) into the landscape. So "on the cut" means cruising on the canal, and the colours are reflected in this yarn. Sky blue, white fluffy clouds, and the green-brown sliver of the water. Although quite highly variegated, the colours are light and will allow textured patterns to shine through while lending visual interest to simple ones. The gentle colours blend beautifully in the finished project.
