Debbie's been busy

A big box of yarn arrived today from Debbie Bliss. That sounds like Debbie personally sent yarn to me.

Roma Weave is
70% Wool
30% Alpaca

100 gram ball
80 m
9-12 stitches = 4"

Colours 1, 2, 4 and 5 came in the shipment. If you are looking for another colour, it can be ordered and will be here in a couple of days. The yarn knits to the same tension as Roma - these patterns are from last fall's pattern book for Roma.



There is a new booklet of patterns for Roma Weave.



58% wool
42% alpaca

100gram ball
60m
8 stitches = 4"





There are 8 new colours of Cashmerino Baby.

From Debbie
Baby Cashmerino is one of my most popular yarns. Soft and gentle against the skin but machine washable, it is the perfect fibre for babies and children.
Yarn Weight: Lightweight DK
Blend: 55% Wool 33% Acrylic 12% Cashmere
Meterage: 125m
Needles: 3.25mm (US3)
Tension: 25 stitches and 34 rows to 10cm/4in square


And 5 new colours of Cashmerino Aran
Yarn Weight: Aran
Blend: 55% Wool 33% Acrylic 12% Cashmere
Meterage: 90m
Needles: 5mm (US8)
Tension: 18 stitches and 24 rows to 10cm/4in square


Most of the yarn is put away but something whispered in my ear that we should put the Cashmerino Baby in numerical order. That is our job tomorrow. The store will be in a bit of a mess temporarily as we pull all the yarn off but when done we'll have a pretty display. And it will be much easier to find colours.
