    Posted on

    A big skein of Raincloud and mini skeins in Colour Makes Me Happy. Sometimes getting to play with colour is the best job in the world.

    We've added new mini skein collections in our One Farm Yarn base to the shop this week. There's enough in each set to make a decent sized shawl. This is one of my favourite yarns for colourwork - as the yarn hasn't been superwash treated the texture of the wool is slightly grippier, and this helps colourwork changes stay nicely in place (if you've ever tried colour work with a slippery yarn you'll know exactly what I mean)

    Colour Pop Lime - so a fade and then a splash of colour which would make a great edging for a shawl or mittens.

    Frosty and Festive mini skeins - there's something about red and green which says holiday season to me.

    Gelato and Ice mini skeins - possibly more relevant for the other side of the world where it's getting warmer rather than cooler right now. But ice cream is good at any time of the year. These mini skeins really pop when paired with a dark colour like black.

    Hydrangea Bouquet. All of the pretty colours, perfect for a scarf to brighten up a winter coat.

    Natural Beauty mini skeins. There are so many colours in nature, but there's something about the way that browns combine that makes me especially happy. These work beautyifully with a pop of bright colour like Wisteria.

    Ocean Depths mini skeins. Blues and greens go so well together, and these could be paired with a black or wisteria for some extra colour pop.

    Superhero Genes mini skeins might just be my perfect fade combination. All the colours of a par of jeans that have been loved well, so the only place you'll find the dark colour left is ticked up in the seams.

    The Blues Can Be Happy Too mini skeins. I'm very tempted to pair these with the Superhero Genes set above for a project that's all blue.

  2. Dark Shades and Superhero Genes Colour Combinations

    Posted on

    Our new dark shades of One Farm Yarn are gorgeous on their own or combined with each other.

    If you'd like a little more colour variation then the dark shades are stunning when combined with the Superhero Genes Blues.

    It's possible that I'm a little biased here. I love every single shade of blue. If I could only dye with one colour it would be blue. I also love that the name of the Superhero Genes yarns was suggested by a very lovely friend and that every skein of them that we sell raises money for Genetic Disorders UK. 

    I've taken photos of the eight dark shades with thefull Superhero Genes fade, however any of the superhero genes will provide a lovely contrast. As always please don't hesitate to get in touch and we can help you find the perfect colour combination for your next project.

    One Farm Yarn is wonderful for shawls - it's got a lovely bounce to it so it's warm, yet working on 4mm and blocking will give you beautiful drape too. I love that it's a proper Yorkshire yarn through and through. The fleece came from a local farm, and was processed and spun a few miles along the road from us.
