Today’s post will be all about yarn. One skein, to be exact. Yes people, it is *that* good, so good that it merits it’s own blog post ;)
Sometimes, we need a little yarn slash retail therapy, and for me, that was last weekend. I got an email newsletter in my inbox from Wolplein.nl, and I fell instantly in love. In it was this amazing yarn: Knit Collage Gypsy Garden ♥
This is how it arrived on my doorstep. Lushious, gorgeous, green and fabulous. This colour way is called Emerald Rainforest. I pulled the skein loose for some closer inspection…
There are flowers in it ♥ As well as some sparkly bits, sequins, and different coloured threads. The yarn has that handspun feel, it’s incredibly soft and varies from sport weight to chunky and bulky.
After ooh-ing and aah-ing over it for a couple of minutes (okay, maybe too many minutes) I wound it up in a cake.
It still looks amazing! :)
The yarn is a mix of wool and mohair, making it really really soft and snuggly. It has around 40 yards per skein, and is worked with a 10-15mm hook.
I got mine from Wolplein.nl but if you Google it, there’s lots of places that sell this amazing yarn! But be warned; there are a lot of colours to choose from and you might just get lost in amazement if you stare at it too long… ;)
I already made something from it, which I will share later!
