Bowland DK: Projects and Patterns using our bluefaced leicester DK yarn

It occurred to us that it might be really useful to have an ECY way to browse patterns and projects made using specific yarns, for inspiration and ideas. It's one of those things where once you think of it it seems blatantly obvious 🙈🤣  Just FYI - there are no links to Ravelry here. We've linked to patterns and projects that are available to purchase/view elsewhere.  Bowland DK truly is an ECY favourite - it's super-soft, smooth, and silky. It's ideal for such a wide range of knitting/crochet projects - being machine washable plus next-to-skin soft means it's perfect for babies...

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...

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...
