BritYarn Exclusive Colourways

Hello again!  Well it is a smidgen over a week to go before BritYarn's virtual doors open on Tuesday 2nd June so it is time to share some very special yarn with you all.

I am super, super, super excited to announce that BritYarn has an exclusive range of colourways!  These have been hand dyed by Nic from Yarns from the Plain onto her custom spun Mobberley 4 ply base.  Mobberley is 70% Exmoor Blueface and 30% British Alpaca and knits up wonderfully, it is so soft and squishy.  

There are a six amazing and unique colourways available.  Nic has created five colourways based on landmarks and areas of Great Britain.  These are Blackpool Illuminations, Bridge Over The Forth, Ironbridge, Heather on the Moors and Usk Valley.  In addition Nic has dyed a sixth colourway 'BritYarn' using the colours from our logo as inspiration.  Don't they look stunning?  They will be £13.50 each and there is approximately 100g / 333m to a skein. 




The colourways are repeatable but will only be available in small batches.  I will be talking to Nic on the blog in the future. So keep a look out!

Have a relaxing Bank Holiday Monday if you are in the UK.

As a bit of background I purchased one of Nic's autumnal colours last year as a tester and knitted a Woolly Wormhead hat.  The wool felt smooth and soft to work with and created well defined stitches with a slight halo.

  2. What a great idea to use places/landmarks as colour inspiration.

    I need to get the Blackpool Illuminations colourway. I was born and grew up in Blackpool and went to the Illuminations factory/workshop on a school trip.

    1. I love the subtle shade differences in the purple 'Heather on the Moors'. I did put to one side a BritYarn skein which I have cast on with a few nights ago to make a little shawl..... I am showing a lot of restraint and not keeping one of each for myself!
