* I haven’t yet finished my version of the cowl (which Christina kindly released early for me so I could test yarn suitability) so I can’t be certain I’ll complete the whole cowl with one skein – it may be a little close, but the pattern is very forgiving and easy to adapt – the final repeat can easily be missed out if yarn looks to be running low. Or you could choose two skeins to knit the larger version of the cowl. All the pattern details are available when you buy the pattern and the full knitting instructions are released on 1 December.
Our Bluefaced Leicester comes from two flocks here on the Black Isle – Wester Raddery and Craigallan are each just a handful of miles from our base in Fortrose. These two flocks of majestic-looking Bluefaced Leicesters produce typically fine, silky and lustrous fleeces. The Suri Alpaca used in this blend is sourced from a small flock in the north of England. The natural silver is a blend of several undyed shades, giving a heathery depth to the silver grey colour. New for 2018 is a natural white version which takes natural dyes beautifully.
This special luxury yarn was beautifully spun by The Border Mill in the Scottish Borders.
