And we’re launching another new base, Clara Aran.
This is an aran yarn, made from British Bluefaced Leicester ecru wool marbled with natural brown Masham wool in a 3ply yarn. 175 yards (160m) per 100g. Recommended needle size is 4.5mm (US 7). £13.20 (including VAT), £11.00 (excluding VAT) per 100g skein.
If you’ve already got some Clara DK in your stash, you’ll know what this one will feel like. Otherwise, it’s very soft, but still a little crisp, very sheepy, and quite possibly my most favourite base of all time, because it manages to marry softness with rusticity with robustness.
