Always keen to make mention of British wool sellers and dyers that you may not be aware of – and who are new to me, too – Katie for Sylvan Tiger received a wool shop shout out on the latest podcast and I mentioned that she had kindly offered a skein of her delightful 4 ply yarn to one lucky KnitBritisher.
In case you missed it, Sylvan Tiger is dyer Katie, who is inspired by the colours of her home in Yorkshire. She dyes using natural dyes in extract form, which creates the gentle variations of colour. I am sure you will agree that there is definitely a unique character in the colours.
Katie is passionate about sourcing wool from British suppliers and when possible British sheep and in her etsy shop she has 4ply, laceweight and also fibre.
Lavurple is a 4ply weight yarn, 110g/421 yards, and can’t you just feel how smooshy it would be?
To be in with a chance of winning Lavurple, please comment and tell me which sheep breed is used in the hand-dyed 4 ply yarns and also tell me which other colours jump out at you….Grellow is positively calling to me.
Entries will close on Sunday 16th February. I will announce with winner soon after.
Please be aware that this competition is open to entrants from the UK only.
