Introducing Keld Aran - a beautiful new merino/linen addition

Well this is exciting! We have a brand new yarn, and it is *beautiful*! You may already (hopefully!) be familiar with our Keld Fingering yarn, which is 90% superwash extrafine merino and 10% linen.. and now we have the Aran version! This iteration of it is spun as a two-ply, which will give it better strength for a thicker yarn (a thicker singles yarn isn't usually a great idea - they tend to pill) but whilst also allowing the fibres to bloom and be all soft and lovely.  Just like its sister, this yarn has that unique and rustic appearance...

Reintroducing Pendle DK: pure merino loveliness

Pendle DK is our luscious, squishy, cosy pure superwash extrafine merino. There are a lot of adjectives I could use for this yarn but they all basically come back to it being SQUISHY AF.  We've had Pendle DK for many years, and it's always been quite a soft and sturdy yarn but not all *that* soft (weirdly) compared to say Brimham DK for example (which uses the same merino). However, new for 2021 it has had an upgrade. It's still extrafine merino (that's defined by the micron count of the fibre) but it is just... better. It's honestly just so...

Titus DK: a re-introduction to our classic merino/silk blend

Titus DK is part of our classic and long-standing Titus collection of yarn bases which comprises 75% superwash extrafine merino and 25% silk. Although I've had the DK weight for many years it has always been in the shadow of its ridiculously popular 4ply sister yarn, and now that it has been revamped I would really like to shine a light on it. The 2021 version of this yarn took me by surprise to be honest; I didn't realise it'd been changed a bit, so when I opened the box and felt the yarn I was completely blown away. It's always been...

Bedale 4ply: projects and patterns using our baby yak/silk hand dyed yarn

This blog post is designed as a useful resource for inspiration for a specific yarn. There are projects that use it, and patterns that call for it. It's so handy to have all this in one place!  Just FYI - there are no links to Ravelry here. We've linked to patterns and projects that are available to purchase/view elsewhere. If they're only available on Ravelry we will say that, but not link to it.  Bedale 4ply is equal quantities mulberry silk and baby yak, creating a beautiful and subtle yarn. The silk gives it a gorgeous shine, the yak is really buttery soft and...

Moss - going green with a rich woodland shade of yarn

When the final five colours were added to the Milburn range we knew there was a gap for darker green shades, especially for more autumnal shades. We never imagined that the zingy lime green of Fern would be so much more popular than the rich woodland green of Moss. 🙈 Here's some gorgeous inspiration for you! Hands up who wants to make allllll the things now?! ✋ Designs using Moss Flitcha by Brian Smith This gorgeous textured cowl actually calls for Bowland DK in Moss, but four balls of Milburn DK would be perfect. It looks cosy!   Slouch socks by Anna...
