Colour Fest

Some days, a plain glazed doughnut just doesn’t quite cut it, especially when there is a confetti sprinkled one sitting right next to it.  The same goes for yarn, choosing between a soft twisted skein of grey alpaca and a big bulky ball of razzle dazzle colour, well…….. let’s just say knitters have room for both in their stash.  This season a NEW polar weight yarn seems to be working its magic across the country- OLYMPIA from German manufacturer Lana Grossa is pumped to the max with sixteen shades of temptation accompanied by a booklet of accessory designed with a finger on the pulse of the knitting world.

Colour is a welcome sight at this time of year and Olympia doesn’t hold back with a palette of splashy eye candy that instantly grabs your attention in a merino base with a thick and thin texture that mimics the look of homespun.
