BEACHES - Sailor blue
A new and exclusive soft, subtle, light & cool blend for summer and holidays!
This blend is a delight to spin – see our blog for more information.
Here's our latest exclusive blend - a soft and cool blend of Corriedale, and Flax (linen) in a range of subtle colours just perfect for lightweight summer and holiday projects such as wraps, cardigans and tee shirts. We've used natural and dyed Corriedale from New Zealand together with dyed Flax in a range of soft, muted pastel shades inspired by glorious sunny days spent relaxing on the beach! These pastel shades are also bang on trend for summer 2018.
The Flax gives the yarn a lovely crisp handle and good drape without being too hard and cotton like. The Corriedale has good crimp and a soft handle with approx 25 - 30 microns and a staple length of between 80 - 120mm. Flax has a natural sheen and is long and strong. It will soften with repeated wearing and laundering.
How much fibre will I need?
This will depend on how finely you spin plus the size and tension of the final knitted garment. The weights below are a helpful guide but cannot be guaranteed. If you are unsure, always buy a little bit more than you think you'll need (that's what stashes are for!)
