We have talked a bit about King Cole Opium Palette on this blog, but it appears as though we neglected to discuss the one and only original Opium!

This fantastic yarn was released a few years back, with the Opium Palette joining in just last year. But the original is certainly not to be overlooked!

Soft and textured, with a fantastic collection of patterns, Opium knits up quickly and is perfect for that air-conditioned office, chilly Summer evening or just those days that don’t feel so Summery after all.

Opium is a blend of 54% cotton, 42% acrylic and 4% polyamide, making it oh-so-soft, as well as oh-so-washable. With thick fluffy pieces throughout, punctuated by thin lengths of tightly twisted yarn, it makes for one exciting tactile adventure.

Available in 23 colours, there is sure to be a shade to suit every brand of knitterly mood and style.

The patterns are stylish, easy to knit and plentiful! There is sure to be something for everyone- we promise! To view the full range of Opium patterns available click here.¬†And there is an added BONUS! Each leaflet includes TWO patterns per sheet! Not just the standard single pattern that most leaflets offer. Who doesn’t love a little extra added value?

So be sure to check out this yarn the next time you are in your local yarn shop. It has been hugely popular across Canada, so chances are pretty good that your LYS has a few balls of Opium just waiting for you.
