Welcome to the round-up of our second launch for the Spring Summer season with delectable colours that will light up your wardrobe. Bamboo+Cotton Collage The first new yarn really does need a drum roll, such has been the anticipation and great excitement among designers and Stylecraft’s Blogstars. We are launching a new family of yarns called Stylecraft Naturals, all of which will focus only on natural fibres.  The first offering is Bamboo+Cotton, a sumptuous blend of natural fibres with exceptional stitch definition, a super soft handle and lovely drape.   In fact, the Blogstars have fallen so in love with this yarn that there are project ideas and reviews on several of their blogs including Catherine’s Crochet Corner, Cherry Heart, Josie Kitten, Crystals and Crochet, Hand Knitted Things, The Loopy Stitch and Jane Crowfoot’s The Fruit Garden CAL which launches in April. Bamboo+Cotton comes in a jaw-dropping palette of 43 shades from rich mid-tones to chalky pastels.  The eight core colours have been used to design a collection of six knitting pattern leaflets - relaxed, easy-to-wear garments featuring delicate textures that make the most of the yarns drape and handle. Bambino Collage Bambino continues to go from strength to strength and welcomes two new colours to its palette – Awesome Avocado and All at Sea. To celebrate the new shades we are launching a playful collection of six knitting pattern leaflets which cover new borns right through to children of 7 years old and include cardigans, a jumper, hats and cosy blankets. Our second launch is now in your local yarn shop or favourite online retailer. At this difficult time your yarn shop needs your support so please don’t forget that they are there to help you fulfil your yarn desires. Why not get in touch with your LYS – they may be offering home delivery, mail order and even if they don’t have an ecommerce website, they may sell through a Facebook page. If you don’t have a shop local to you, consider supporting one in another part of the country.  You can find a map of shops on the UK Hand Knitting website here.
