We had a lot of fun collaborating with Third Vault Yarns for this year’s Open Day Special yarn!
Third Vault Yarns are inspired by fantasy and sci-fi. When deciding on what theme to go with, Lola listed numerous fantasy series, all of which I haven’t read! We finally realised that we both enjoyed Terry Pratchett’s Discworld, and love the original cover art from the books.
We dyed two different yarn bases:
50% Corriedale 50% Mohair – this yarn has all the lustre and drape you’d expect from its constituent fibres and that beautiful fuzzy halo too.
100% Cormo wool – a bouncy 4 ply / fingering weight that is soft and smooth. This is the one used in the swatches.
Both yarns are 400m per 100g skein.
