Aren't these gorgeous? They're the new colourways in S Twist Single Ply, and we asked their clever producer Diarmuid Commins to introduce them. So with news of an anniversary and a chance to win all the colours, it's over to him!
I got a call last week from a farmer wanting to know when I would go to pick up this year's wool. I couldn't believe that shearing time had come around already. Following on that was the realisation that S Twist Wool is now a year old!
What a year it has been. At the start I was able to offer one yarn type. Over the year, that range has grown to three different yarn weights in different dyed options. It's no exaggeration to say that this would not have been possible without This Is Knit.
Because of this, I'm delighted to team up with This Is Knit to celebrate my first year and to launch my latest line of yarns. These are the first of my repeatable colourways: six colours specially blended to complement the underlying gray yarn.
So to celebrate, here's a chance to win a full set of six 100g skeins - one of every new colour! - simply tell us in the comments below how you'd use the prize. Several projects? One many-coloured one? Something for yourself? The closing date is midnight on Friday 26th June, so you've got two weeks to plan!
