New blue

Round this time of year, we start to receive the goodies that we’ll be stocking over the coming autumn and winter, and it’s always exciting. We’ll be showcasing lots of them at the Yarn Tasting, of course, but honestly, we can’t wait that long to share them with you! So here, with some fanfare, is the first: Debbie Bliss Blue Faced Leicester DK.

We were very impressed last year with the aranweight version of this heritage breed yarn (we blogged about it here). So we’re awfully pleased to have this DK weight in stock, and there’s more than one cozy cardigan being planned around it. We’re entranced by the sprightly twist of the ply and the way that Blue Faced Leicester yarns work up soft and comforting when you knit them up. And oh! the colours!

It’s going to be a lovely Autumn/Winter 2013/2014!
