This bespoke blend of merino and Blue Faced Leicester laps and tops with metallic threads was created on the trial run of the new blending board and is a Christmassy combination of reds and greens, with lots of other little pockets of colour and sparkle - making something that looks like a traditionally decorated Christmas tree..
It was spun up into a thick and thin yarn on the Norwegian wheel ‘Little Oullo’ at the Salisbury Arts Scene Christmas Event, and knitted into a two-needle no-seam pouch with a single wooden button fastening, perfect to hold a phone, sunglasses, or an extra pair of gloves.
