New for Spring/Summer 2014 - Louisa Harding's Noema

small Delilah, 2 balls.  the large one 5

Our other new yarn for Spring/Summer is Louisa Harding's Noema.

A cotton/acrylic blend that stripes with a slight thick and thin texture and a subtle sheen.

This yarn has a lot going on and all for £4.95.

It has an almost worsted tension listed on the ball band (20 stitches by  28 rows on 4mm) but the stunning pattern book shows how versatile this yarn can be using different needles and changing the tension.

Azurine, 5-6 balls

Nadia, 5 balls, also available as a shrug

Stellina, 7-9 balls, also available sleeveless

Bettine, 7-9 balls

6 shades in the shop!

Fiona is currently knitting Azurine for the shop... So if Karen is knitting in Juliet... who will get the garment on the dummy first?  

And does anyone know how to pronounce Noema?
