Excitement's been high in the shop over the last few days, because we got a delivery of wonderful Fyberspates yarn - luxury fibres with beautiful artisan dyeing. The skeins in the picture above are Vivacious 4-ply. It's a 100% merino fingering weight, with a crisp ply that gives fantastic stitch definition. It comes in a gorgeous range of jewel colours, and the sample we've made for the shop is in a colourway called Tweed Imps! How could you not love a pattern called Piewhacket? It's a quick short row shawlette, angular and geometric, and a bucket of fun to knit. Tweed Imps Piewhacket - it was meant to be! The other Fyberspates offering is Scrumptious 4-ply, and it's 55% merino and 45% silk. The colour saturation in this yarn is astounding. This was pounced on avidly for a Color Affection this week (our Knit A-Long's still going strong), and we'll show you the result as soon as we can (we have high hopes for it).
