Yarn buying enabler extraordinaire

I’m sorry in advance for putting such lovely yarns right under your nose. But I’ve been fortunate to find some absolute beauties in recent weeks and just had to put them all in one handy place. Ready for a pay day / ‘Yes I made it through Dry January!’ / ‘Darn I messed up Dry January, oh well, I’ll make myself feel better by buying some gorgeous new yarn!’

There’s a mixture of luxury and more affordable yarns in here, that I’ve earmarked for upcoming projects. The colourways are stunning and very wearable. I’m desperately searching for a supersoft striped yarn to use for my Weekender sweater by Andrea Mowry, but the right one hasn’t crept up yet (any suggestions, please let me know)! But without further ado, here are the yarns I’m ogling right now.

De Rerum Natura Gilliatt Caramel - Shortrounds Knitwear

I chuckle at the names, and fall in love with their rich colourways time
after time. Camel Gone Wild is a firm autumnal fave…

Dye For Yarn Cinnamon Roll too long in the oven - Shortrounds Knitwear

Dye For Yarn Pure Cashmere in
Cinnamon Roll Too Long in the Oven

The What Fingering 100% Cashmere / 100g = 466m

Skein Queen Selkino in Lady Philomore - Shortrounds Knitwear

Skein Queen Selkino in Lady Philomore

The What 4 ply fingering 70% Superwash Merino & 30% Silk / 100 g = 400m

my Hessian Shawl in their Enchant colourway recently. I’d love to try this
merino/silk fibre and this colourway is so subtle and chic!

Happy knitting x
