In celebration of our fortieth anniversary last year, we launched two yarns that we had hoped would become staples in every knitter and crocheter’s stash. Available in a wide range of colours, and at a great price point, we introduced Estelle Worsted and Estelle Chunky to you all.
Based on the response that we have received since the launch, it is safe to say that these two yarns have both fulfilled the role that we were hoping they would, they both make great ‘go-to’ yarns, no matter what your knitting/crochet style may be! Both yarns are composed of 50% acrylic, 40% wool and 10% nylon, making them soft to wear, a pleasure to knit, and easy to wash.
Despite the success of this yarn, we have been hearing some rumblings that people have been hoping for some heathered shades to round out the existing vast, solid palette. Well, when the people speak- we listen! And we are so happy to report that we have just added twelve shades of heathered tones to the Estelle Worsted and the Estelle Chunky collections.
These new shades are beautifully subtle, and classic. After playing around with all of the twelve colours, we felt as though no matter which two (or three!) skeins we paired together, any combination will look simply stellar. This collection of heathers will make perfect accessories for your man’s leather jacket, a cozy cardigan for your sister whose laundering habits might require something on the slightly more ‘forgiving’ side, or fingerless gloves for your neighbour who has offered to blow out your driveway more than once this year. It is truly a versatile yarn- and available in two gauges!
