The Knitting and Stitching Show in the RDS opened yesterday, and we're having a ball! This year, we're exclusively partnering Malabrigo Yarns, so our stand is looking utterly glorious. There's all our usual favourites, like Rios, Silkpaca and Sock, but we're also introducing some new beauties. There's Mecha, which is a chunky superwash pure merino (that's it in the picture above), there's Twist, an unbelievably soft merino which is a little heavier than aranweight, there's a lovely light DK merino/silk blend called Rastita.... And as a show surprise, there's a yarn so new it doesn't even have a name. Currently designated "Test Yarn", it's Malabrigo's first superwash laceweight and the only place you can see it is at our stand! The show's open from 10.00am to 5.30pm tomorrow, and from 10.00am till 5.00pm on Sunday. There's so much to see - over 200 exhibitors, including displays of the most beautiful handcraft you've ever seen. We're at stand B36, and meeting you all in person is the best part of the show for us. ...mmm...Malabrigo!
