Constant Companion Yarn Kit
ORDER YOUR CONSTANT COMPANION YARN KIT
This limited edition kit has been created with Susan's Excelana DK, 100% British wool, to provide you with all the yarn you need to make your own Constant Companion in a choice of two beautiful colourways. Each kit contains your main colour in luscious 100g skeins, with the three contrasting colours in 25g mini-skeins ensuring you're not left with lots of wool left over, and providing a real saving. These kits are very limited. This first batch of kits sold out in a heartbeat but see below for more availability.
To order your kit first choose from one of the two stunning colourways:
Colourway One as worn by Susan, uses Pomegranate as the main colour, a soft, yet warm red. It is complemented by three contrasting shades; Olea, a rich olive green; Tansy, a golden-mustard, and Snowdrop, the natural undyed wool.
THE FIRST BATCH OF COLOURWAY ONE KITS SOLD OUT WITHIN A FEW HOURS, HOWEVER WE HAVE BEEN WORKING HARD TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS FOR AN ADDITIONAL LOT OF YARN TO BE MADE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. DUE TO CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS AT MILLS AND DYERS THE LEAD TIMES ARE SLIGHTLY LONGER AT THIS TIME OF YEAR, BUT WE WILL HAVE NEW STOCK AVAILABLE FROM LATE FEBRUARY. WE HAVE COMMITTED TO A LARGER VOLUME OF YARN TO HOPEFULLY OFFER MORE KNITTERS THE CHANCE TO OBTAIN A KIT, BUT IT WILL ALWAYS BE AN ARTISAN, SMALL-SCALE YARN SO THERE WILL STILL ONLY BE A LIMITED NUMBER OF KITS AVAILABLE.
WE ANTICIPATE HIGH DEMAND ONCE AGAIN FOR THE KIT, SO WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND PRE-ORDERING YOUR KIT TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT. PRE-ORDERS ARE NOW OPEN FOR COLOURWAY ONE.
Colourway Two worn by Charlie, uses Olea as the main colour, allowing this vibrant, olive shade to sing. This in turn is complemented by three contrasting shades; Tansy and Snowdrop appear again and this time they are accompanied by the jewel-like tones of Heliotrope, an intense purple shade.
CURRENTLY ONLY A HANDFUL OF KITS IN THIS COLOURWAY REMAIN IN STOCK. THESE WILL BE SENT OUT SHORTLY AFTER RECEIPT OF ORDER.
Once you have chosen your colourway, you simply need to choose which size kit you require. There are four kit sizes, each providing enough yarn to knit a range of sizes (for full sizing information see the pattern page):
Kit Size One: Provides enough yarn to knit either 1st, 2nd or 3rd sizes (to fit 71-97cm (28-38in) chest).
Kit Size Two: Provides enough yarn to knit either 4th or 5th sizes (to fit 102-117cm (40-46in) chest).
