The Puzzlewood Mittens, which feature in the beautiful new knitting book WOODS, were designed in two of my yarns.  It was such a delight to be involved in this project and the designer Ruth Werwai worked wonders with the yarns.  The mittens were originally knit with Silver Gotland and Zwartbles-Mohair Blend (from my 2016 batch) but this year a Zwartbles-Mohair Blend didn’t work out so has been replaced with a Zwartbles-Bluefaced Leicester Blend which has many similar properties to the original (though slightly less lustre) and will work beautifully with the pattern and alongside the 2017 Silver Gotland. The kits come in two sizes (as per the pattern) and will knit up into pretty, cosy and practical mittens.

The kits include yarn as follows: Size 1 approx 110g & Size 2 approx 133g

  1. Black Isle Yarns are gently and minimally processed by The Border Mill (link) from real animals who enjoy an outdoor life (in beautiful surroundings, lucky beasts!) – consequently you may find the odd bit of vegetation in your yarn, these are easy to remove as you knit and, if you’re lucky enough to find some, I hope will remind you of the special animals who have grown your yarn!
  2. I do my best to show the yarn colours as accurately as possible but please be aware that colours do vary from monitor to monitor
  3. Your yarn should be gently hand washed in cool water using pH neutral wool wash such as Eucalan or Soak. This may seem time consuming at first but should soon become an enjoyable part of working with a gently treated natural product.
