Hello Natural Fibre Lovers!

I trust that you are all well rested over the festive season and that you are inspired for a wonderful year of fibre-crafting!

The year kicked off to a lovely start! Let me share some of the exciting things are happening here at Natural Yarns:


NURTURING FIBRES

Nurturing Fibres 2017 Soft Palette Colourways are soft and absolutely dreamy!
Silver, Lunar, Knysna, Pear, Glacier, Monsoon, Cherry Blossom and Conch Shell invoke magical places and thoughts.
The Eco Range has 3 new colours:
Saffron, Pear and Blush which are now available in Eco-Fusion, Eco-Cotton and Eco-Bamboo at Natural Yarns!

 

 


CREATIVE HOBBIES MAGAZINE

Creative Hobbies Magazine is now available to purchase from our online shop.
Issue 21 and Issue 22 both have lovely projects for Nurturing Fibres Eco range yarns!

DISCOUNTED YARN KITS

We have put together some discounted yarn kits for you!
(click on the title of the pattern to view the yarn kit).

The Casablanca Throw,  in Eco-Cotton was designed by Brenda Grobler.
It has a crocheted diamond motif and pom pom detail which creates a fun but stylish accessory for your home.

Organised Chaos shawl by Sally-Jane Cameron (Pinkhairgirl Knits) is designed for Nurturing Fibres Eco-Fusion in Anvil, Cobblestone, Vanilla, Mint and the brand new Saffron! Knit along to this shawl in the Wonders Of The World KAL 2017 which is currently featuring Africa, led by Sally-Jane as the podcaster for the African continent!

Elecha Muller‘s Pretty Floral Blanket (available in Issue 21 of the Creative Hobbies Magazine) is designed for Nurturing Fibres Eco-Bamboo.
Pretty square motifs with pops of colour make for a very pretty blanket!

 


LINDA’S TREEHOUSE

I am so happy to stock Linda’s Treehouse yarns again!
Linda’s yarn is hand dyed in an eclectic array of beautiful  colours.

Some of the new yarns include:
Alpaca Pure Fingering ~ Super soft Alpaca
(Get your favorite skein in time for the mitten KAL later this year!)
Oriole (
a blend of Merino and 10% linen) and
Silky (Merino, Kid Mohair, Mulberry Silk and small percentage of polyamide ~ PERFECT for sock knitting.)

We will also be adding Merino Plus (80% Merino 20% kid mohair) and My Yarn (a stunningly soft non-superwash DK in vivid colours) in the next week or so!


NEW TOOLS

Looking for a Pom Pom maker?  Just arrived at Natural Yarns HQ, the  Addi Moon Pom Pom Maker which allows you to make 4 different size Pom Poms ~ PERFECT for helping you make the Pom Poms for your Casablanca Throw!


REVERSIBLE FABRIC BUCKETS

We are delighted with our A Love Supreme Fabric Buckets. Eye catching designs and you can’t get bored because you can turn them inside out and Voila! a different print!

The buckets are great size for larger knitting and crochet projects, or pop your drop spindle and fibre inside. Another addition to our project bag range are the trendy TRUE range in monochrome prints or grey wool.

Hand Dyed superwash spinning fibre will be added later this week!
