Rosedale 4ply and Silverdale 4ply: projects and patterns using our stellina sparkly merino yarns

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.  Rosedale 4ply - our gold sparkle sock yarn - is a luxurious blend of superwash merino giving softness, nylon for durability and a strand of gold...


Lowther Lace - fluff that won't get your goat

Lowther Lace - fluff that won't get your goat

By now you will hopefully have seen our latest fluffy yarn addition to the ECY stable (or should I say.. garden) - Lowther Lace. We had seen this yarn around for a while but had been resisting as we already had a fluffy yarn, Eldwick Lace. However, with quite a few people feeling sad because they can’t use mohair, I decided it was time to offer something fluffy that isn’t mohair (note that this does also shed fibres though!). Hence the fluffy baby alpaca/silk yarn came along. I did a YouTube video about it which you can watch HERE if...

Introducing Keld Aran - a beautiful new merino/linen addition

Well this is exciting! We have a brand new yarn, and it is *beautiful*!

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...

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...

The silk gives it a gorgeous shine...
