From Skacel, we have received some very luscious and tempting Hikoo yarns. Simplinatural is an
all natural chunky weight blend of 40% alpaca 40% wool and 20% mulberry silk. Gorgeous colours,
texture and hand, 170m/100g. Have made a 2 skein capelet/infinityscarf/neckwarmer/hood
“Kansas City Cowl” with the crimson red. So warm and lovely and versatile.

Hikoo Rylie is equally tempting in an exceptionally pretty pastel range, dk weight at 253m/100g, blending natural luxury of pastel coloured 50% baby alpaca, 25% mulberry silk and 25% linen. Have made a 1 skein cowl with this one. So
excited to have an alpaca silk dk and this one with linen has substance. What an excellent blend!
Hikoo Cobasi plus is the amazing Cobasi, cotton, bamboo, silk and elastic nylon blend in a worsted weight. Enough
colours to satisfy most baby and kid knitters, at 163m 100g, soft, wonderful blend which will join our go to yarns Simplicity and Simpliworsted superwash dk and chunky wool blends for baby and child projects, only offering a non-wool
yarn for those concerned about allergies or itch, and proven versatility. On right below is a great lacy effect summer
project to throw on which takes 4 50 gram balls of cobasi, on an 8mm needle!

Hikoo Kenzie has come out with 10 new colours. Was floored with the Turtleneck Jacket design in Kenzie from KnitWear fall 2013
above. Simply elegant and stunning! This is one of the most interesting blends to come out in the last few years, 160 yds/50g, and
can be knit on 4mm to 5.5mm to get gauge from 4 to 5.5 sts to the inch. Made in New Zealand people! It blooms beautifully because of the angora content. Some of the new patterns are interesting as well, check out Winter Beach and the 2 Skacel patterns

Cotton, plus their booklets of patterns, including the Great Designs of Norah Gaughan. Check out her 2013 winter issue, all sweaters
top down.
Windansea Hat
Lothlorian mitts/merino/fur
Windansea hat pattern, use the Captiva, same gauge as the Seduce, or for a swingy tank, Shearer will work beautifully as
well, drapey, draws the eye down, hides what we want, you could buy extra yarn and knit it straight up instead of the
Vneck, and shoulders will come down over top of arms! Or how about Flow? Quick to knit, drapey and can wear both for
day or dress, depending on the accessories.
