Choose Brush­work for artis­tic knits

The Knitter - - The Knitter loves -

Blacker has launched a lim­ited-edi­tion yarn to cel­e­brate its 12th birth­day. The blend of 70% Scot­tish Bow­mont, 20% Bri­tish Al­paca and 10% rare-breed Castlemilk Moorit wool is called Brush­work, and it feels very spe­cial.

It’s a lofty, bouncy sport-weight which, be­cause it is woollen-spun, will work for both DK and 4ply knit­ting pat­terns, and prom­ises de­cent pill-re­sis­tance. The colour palette is gor­geous, with eight shades in­spired by wa­ter­colour art, and it costs £8.40 per 50g.

To show­case the new yarn, five free pat­terns are avail­able to down­load from Blacker’s web­site, in­clud­ing an Old Shale shawl, a side­ways-knit ca­ble jumper, a colour­work cowl, and a semi-fit­ted cardi­gan. www.black­er­yarns.co.uk 01566 777635
