English Damson is a rich, deep, saturated colour inspired by those delicious plums (known for making their way in to bottles of gin).
Tanami is an absolutely incredible yarn. It's a super-soft blend of baby camel and silk, giving a perfect blend of sheen with a subtle halo. It has amazing drape and lovely texture, and knits to a light 4ply/sock weight gauge, but of course can be knit loosely for laceweight projects. This is a true luxury yarn that just begs to be knit in to something special.
Yarn: 50% baby camel / 50% silk
Meterage: Approx 400m/ 437 yards

Too beautiful for a busy shawl
I discovered this wool at Sweater Weather and was captivated by the colours from across the room. They are so rich and deep - unlike any others I’d seen. I initially bought it for the Westknits MKAL. I stopped on the first clue because I decided that this yarn was too beautiful to be hidden by busy patterns. I’m knitting it into a much plainer shawl where the yarn is the star. Because this yarn deserves that.
