    Luxury yarn at a non luxury price

    This Malabrigo silkpaca yarn is dream to own . I shall be knitting a luxury shawl/scarf called Sakura. It is a joy to work with and a pleasure to see evolving the pattern.

    Luxury yarn in a gorgeous colour

    This yarn is beautifully soft, and the mix of colours is gorgeous - very deep, but subtle enough for the changes in colour not to detract from the intricate lace pattern. [I'm knitting "Monet" from this months "The Knitter". The yarn is very fine and easy to knit with.
