It's That Time of Year

Who doesn't love the autumn? The leaves are turning, the air is clear and the cooler nights remind us that the time for wool is near.

At KnitTraders we've begun to receive new yarns for the season. Here are some we're excited about:

Alpakka is a beautiful 100% alpaca yarn which knits up at a DK weight. It is amazingly soft with a slight halo and rich colours.

New from Hayfield is Aran with Wool. This is a practical blend of wool and acrylic, making for very easy care. The colours are quite subtle and would be perfect for a sweater with a lot of texture.

We are always interested in new sock yarn and this is one really caught out attention. Sock It To Me is a superwash wool with added nylon for for strength. The colours will really catch your eye, they have a subtle tweedy texture that won't detract from your favourite sock pattern and could be equally beautiful in a shawl or light scarf.

Enjoy your autumn and don't forget to check back often - we're adding new stock all the time.
