  • Close up of Hocus Crocus on Nene 4 Ply Skeins of Nene 4 Ply in the Hocus Crocus colourway
    Who doesn't love spring? All the colours of fresh new leaves and blooms can be found in this colourway. Becci wrote a blog post about it here. The yarn is gently variegated and that makes it a lot of fun to work with because every stitch is different. The colours blend beautifully in the finished project as you can see in the knit and crochet samples. You can use this for textured as well as simple patterns.

    Recommended needle & hook size: 2.0mm - 3.75mm (always check the pattern)
     
    Aysgarth is 100% lustrous British Wensleydale wool. Its appearance is similar to the shine and the halo of mohair and it feels like a warm woolly hug. Seriously, you won't be able to stop stroking this yarn! It comes from sheep who have amazing long curly locks and it is a hand dyer's favourite for its colour uptake. The yarn is worsted spun and plied, and has a draping handle, making it ideal for statement pieces. Remember to always block your projects for the best outcome. Please note that this is a non-superwash yarn, so it can be felted if you want.

  • Knit and crochet samples of Honey Sunrise Skeins of Honey Sunrise

    Honey Sunrise – Nene 4 Ply 100g

    One of those magical, otherworldly sunrises inspired this colourway. Honey coloured autumn leaves were hanging over the canalside and the pink, violet, and blue sky was reflected in the water. Stunning. The yarn is gently variegated and that makes it a lot of fun to work with because every stitch is different. The colours blend beautifully in the finished project as you can see in the knit and crochet samples. You can use this for textured as well as simple patterns.

  • Close up of skeins in zesty green with pops of yellow and purple Skeins of Nene 4 Ply in zesty greens with pops of yellow and purple
    We created this colourway partly out of longing for summer after the rather wet and cold spring of 2021, and partly due to the kids bringing that oh-so-annoying phrase out of hibernation since we’ve been coming out of lockdown and travelling further afield! This colourway is moderately variegated and that makes it a lot of fun to work with because almost every stitch is a different colour. Textured patterns will show up in this yarn, alternatively, use it for something simple and let the colours do the work!

  • Lake Bacalar from the shore. There is a palm tree in the foreground and the water graduates from light, bright aqua to deep blue. A pile of skeins of Laguna de Bacalar, an aqua / blue colourway

    Laguna de Bacalar – Nene 4 Ply 100g

    GBP £22.00
    Chris and Bek are part of the extended RiverKnits family and they designed this fresh and funky limited edition colourway, based on a special holiday memory! They showed us beautiful photos of Lake Bacalar from their travels around Mexico and we dyed yarn to match. Lake Bacalar is often referred to as the “lagoon of seven colours” due to the number of striking aquas and blues in the famously clear waters. It’s also home to one of the oldest living organisms; stromatolites, basically layers of rock formed by cyanobacteria. Very very cool.
    This is a limited edition colourway and will be available while stocks last.
