Autumn colours in the shop

Autumn is such a beautiful time of year in Edinburgh with nature bursting with the most amazing colours and subtle hues. To keep alive the memories of this very brief season, check out Shilasdair’s luxurious blends of hand-dyed yarns from the Isle of Skye in the shop, it is hard to believe that such rich and vibrant colours can be achieved using natural dyes found in nature.

Rich and vibrant autumn colours can be found everywhere, but very soon the wind and the rain will completely strip the trees bare and turn everything into mush!

If you need a soft worsted/dk weight yarn, check out Cascade’s Lana D’Oro (alpaca/wool) range, currently stocking 14 colours in the shop and a few more colours have been added to the Cascade 220 Heathers.

It is definitely sweater season, a great quick and simple top-down pullover project using the Cascade include Arleen. This yarn is also great for quick hats, cowls, mitts and scarves.
