Everyone really sat up when I started talking about new trends in knitting, including yarns made from alternative sources like Arucania, DK made from 100% Sugar Cane in Chile (very soft like a bamboo to handle), and Rowan’s “milk cotton” yarn in DK and 4 ply made from 70% cotton and 30% milk protein.
Louisa Harding’s Grace hand beaded yarn elicited a lot of ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ …the days of having to add beads manually are over!
I also highlighted several British wool providers – but more of this later in a separate blog!
