Looking for colour inspiration for your new year knitting? Yarn brand Scheepjes has launched two products aiming to kickstart our creativity. These are Colour Tribe, a new range of light 4ply yarn whose colours have been developed in partnership with Scheepjes’ active community of bloggers. The choice of self-striping colourways includes soft pastels and vibrant tones, and each is named after the blogger who created it. The blend of 70% superwash merino and 30% polyamide will be ideal for lightweight garments, shawls and socks. It costs £7.99 per 50g ball.
Another new arrival is a woollier version of Scheepjes’ popular Whirl gradient cotton 4ply yarn. Woolly Whirl blends 30% wool with 70% cotton for a warmer feel, and offers extra-long colour changes. £24.50 per 220g. Available from www.woolwarehouse.co.uk 01926 882 818
