Purchase your yarn kit for the beautiful Rosa sweater from my new book, Evolution. Rosa is knitted with Barn, a DK 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 and is the main colour for the Rosa cardigan.
In addition this stunning yarn has been hand dyed in three rich shades to create the hues needed for the rose motifs on the decorative yoke.
Rosehip is a strong, vibrant red; Rosa a faded pink; and Frond a light green. These shades layered over the varying natural greys of Barn, create intense colours with depth and interest. These stunning hand dyed yarns have been hand dyed by Susan here on the farm. They have then been spun into 10g skeins to provide each kit with the correct amount of yarn.
This kit offer a considerable saving on buying the yarn individually, plus a 10% discount on the full purchase price of the kit.
