New Rico and WYS Yarns!Jen May
I hope everyone is coping with the heat! Gosh I am looking forward to it finally cooling down, hopefully it will soon!
I doubt most of you are thinking of knitting in this weather, but I thought I’d still show you some new additions we’ve had this month!
First of all, I thought I’d show you my favourite! We have a new colour in WYS Florist, a gorgeous sock yarn with variegated colours and matching solids. We have been stocking this for a while now, but have just started stocking the pink (Honeysuckle and Foxglove). If you’re wondering how it patterns, there will be a picture on our Facebook page in a week or so when my mum finishes her pair!
We have also had quite a few new colours in our most popular Rico yarns! Seeing as it’s so hot at the moment, I’ll start with the cotton!
We have restocked and have a new colour in Essentials Cotton. This is a lovely 100% cotton DK, which comes in so many lovely bright colours, it’s perfect for summer garments, or even blankets! We’re now stocking Taupe, which seems to be a very popular colour at the moment, I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s the new colour of the season!
We have also restocked on Baby Classic and are now stocking White by popular demand! This one has been very popular with those doing multiple coloured projects (not just for babies), so we had a lot of requests for white, and now we have it!
This one is SO SOFT, and the 50g balls means it’s perfect for fair isle or colour work.
Speaking of baby yarn, we have also extended our range of Baby So Soft into two cubbyholes, and now have navy too! The navy looks so sweet with the red, they would look great together in a little stripey jumper! The nurses in the premature baby unit at Southmead hospital do ask for things to be knitted in this one, as it washes very well even at a high heat.
If you need a bit of sparkle in your life, we have a new colour in Creative Glitz! Unfortunately my favourite colour (the purple) has been discontinued, but they do have a new colour (petrol) out which is just as pretty and so sparkly!
Which is your favourite of our new colours? Mine’s got to be the WYS Florist Pink, I can never resist sock yarn!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
