First of all I bought this card, which I think is just lovely, and will do perfectly for any knitter's birthday.
Next up, a shadecard for Artesano Alpaca.
The colours are gorgeous and the yarn is beautifully soft, but I think I'm going off it. Y'see every time I stroke the yarn on the shadecard, I'm left with fluffy fibres all over my fingers. I really didn't expect it to shed that much.
Do you think the knitted up yarn would stop doing that after a couple of washes?
Finally the real reason for my order - a shadecard of the Dale Svale yarn.
This DK yarn really appeals to me purely because of it's composition - 50% cotton, 40% viscose, 10% silk - the perfect combination for my sensitive skin.
The actual yarn on the shadecard is not what I was expecting, but I do like it. The range of colours is impressive, and so is the price - £2.45 per 50g ball.
This may be on my birthday wishlist - unless I get too tempted before then of course..
