Wonderwool is almost upon us so I thought I would share a sneaky peak of the shawl Ruth has designed to show how the commercially produced yarn that we stock can complement the hand-dyed loveliness of yarns produced by Indie dyers like Woolly Wumpkins. Ruth has already blogged a few glimpses of the shawl enjoying Caribbean sunshine on the beach in Grenada and here the picture is of the shawl blocking on the table in the shop -- sadly not enjoying Caribbean sunshine (or indeed sunshine of any kind!).
Using West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4-ply and Woolly Wumpkins merino/nylon sock yarn, Ruth has designed a striking geometric styled shawl inspired by the patterns used on the Wonderwool Blanket. The pattern will be launched at Wonderwool and available afterwards at Ammonite Yarns, our online shop and on Ravelry.
