Coloured Greys

Heirloom is simply one of my favourite yarns to dye and to work with - if ever there were a yarn spun from gold, this is it. The shine and subtle halo bring my colourways to life in a truly magical way I have yet to experience with any other base. When I set out to create this palette, I wanted to do so with colour play in mind. I also wanted to be able to offer smaller skeins for projects that require more than one colour. Many of these colourways look absolutely stunning together, whether it be in a tonal gradation or blending from one to another. Below you'll find 20 carefully selected colourways, four of which are new and inspired by the idea of blending, Rose Gold, Olive Branch, Lagoon and Lady. These four new colourways sit somewhere between others on the list (Alizarin/Rose Gold/Ochre, Ochre/Olive Branch/Tea Leaves, Spirit/Lagoon/Sea Glass/Shipwreck, Luna/Lady/Nocturnelle) and help transition from one to the next. I hope you enjoy combining these 20 stunning colourways, the possibilities are truly endless and I cannot wait to see you create!

Sunlit Shawl Kits Are Here!

Sunlit Shawl Kits Are Here!

I’m happy to announce that one of our most requested kits is now available for pre-order in the Sweet Fiber online shop! For this round of Sunlit Shawl kits, I have hand picked 27 colourways that look absolutely amazing on Avery Sport and Silk Cashmere Lace!

Sunlit Shawl is a light, airy shawl inspired by the sun and the way its beams navigate through and around the natural world. Semi circle in shape, Sunlit Shawl uses two silk blend yarns of the same colourway and different weights to create a stunning burnout effect. The shawl starts at the top center and works out to the main body and striping, finishing with a picot bind off. There is enough yarn included in the kit to increase the size of your shawl, should you wish to do so.

This yarn kit includes:

2 skeins of Avery Sport (50% Merino, 50% Silk - 329m/360y per 95g skein) 
1 skein of Silk Cashmere Lace (55% Silk, 45% Cashmere - 366m/400y per 50g skein)

The Sunlit Shawl pattern must be purchased separately and can be found here.
