Maggy Yarn Kit

YARN KITS AVAILABLE TO ORDER - DISPATCH DATE END NOVEMBER

Purchase your yarn kit for the versatile Maggy waistcoat from my new book, Evolution. Maggy is knitted with Byre, a fingering (4 ply) weight yarn which is spun from 100% British wool at a nearby mill in Yorkshire. Barn is a blend of Jacob and Shetland fleeces creating a beautifully soft, airy, tonal, naturally grey yarn. This natural shade is called Dry Stone Wall which is used as the background shade in this all-over colourwork vest.

In addition this stunning yarn has been hand dyed in four rich shades to create the rich, autumnal hues for Maggy. These four shades have been inspired by the farm landscape - both organic and industrial - around me: Undergrowth is an intense, deep green reflecting the shadows between the foliage in the trees in Monkley Ghyll wood; Moss Covered Wall is a vibrant, light green created to suggest the mosses that grow on every surface; Berry Picking a rich, dark purple reminiscent of blackberries and Hay Bale - as the name suggests, the colour of hay tightly packed into bales. These stunning hand dyed yarns have been hand dyed by Susan here on the farm. 

This kit offer a considerable saving on buying the yarn individually, with a 15% discount on the full purchase price of the kit.
