  • 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!
