I'm so excited about the arrival of Lucky Tweed from Kelbourne Woolens. Lucky Tweed is a soft and cosy woollen spun, authentic tweed, made in Donegal, Ireland. It works up to an Aran gauge making it ideal for autumn and winter knitting projects.
Working closely with the mill in Donegal, Courtney and Kate have developed a range of colours that include cool neutrals to vibrant, saturated jewel-like colours. And it wouldn't be a Kelbourne Woolens palette without their custom golden yellow, which makes me feel so happy!
Alongside Lucky Tweed, Kelbourne Woolens has launched a collection of nine knitting patterns to support their yarn. The collection reflects the origin of the yarn. It pays homage to Irish knitting with cables and colourwork being ever-present in sweaters, hats and a cowl while still being modern and quintessentially American in look and fit.
Hello, it's Claire here from Flossi! When Rachel reached out to me to ask if I would be interested in writing an article for her blog where I talk about yarn, I jumped at the chance, especially as it wasn't just any yarn
Andrea Mowry is a designer I personally admire, she first came to my attention in 2016 when she released her shawl design Briochealuscious. Since then Andrea has brought us many beautiful knitting patterns, I was lucky to catch up with her over the summer.
