Finished Koolhaas in Bellingen

November 3, 2008

Bellingen knits to a classic worsted heavy weight gauge, making it a perfect choice for hats like Koolhaas (pattern available here).  Koolhaas requires only one skein of Bellingen to make the largest size, and the yarn for this hat was kettle dyed with chocolate brown food colouring and citric acid. The yarn has a a bouncy texture, making the cables really ‘pop”.

Your creations – yarns by Biscotte & Cie

September 25, 2008

These yarns are all dyed by Biscotte & Cie (blog in French). Her yarns are available through her Etsy shop, and they are notable because of their beautiful presentation and colours.  The first three yarns shown here are all dyed on our Merimbula base yarn, which is a 100% merino superwash worsted weight. Merimbula is also available as individual skeins in our Ebay store.

 

Biscotte & Cie has also dyed sock yarns using our Footscray base yarn, and while the colours certainly look pretty in the skein:

look for the seed surprises when they are knitted up!
