Something to Knit With Aran
We know you hate it when your knitting pills so when we created Something to Knit with Aran we carefully blended 70% Highland Wool and 30% Superfine Alpaca to create a cosy yarn that's as hard-wearing as it is soft.
In a range of ten of our favourite shades, this thicker cousin of our Something to Knit With 4Ply is brilliant for textural knits and bold colourwork. The Totally Tubular Mittens from Boost Your Knitting require 2 x 50 skeins of this yarn.
All of the patterns in our new eBook, Something New to Learn About Helical Knitting use Something to Knit With Aran.
Whether you fancy a quick-to-knit hat, like Fabales or Concentricity by Woolly Wormhead; or a stunning colourwork sweater, such as Treysta or Telja by Jennifer Steingass; Something to Knit With Aran is the perfect choice. There is a bundle of suggested patterns for our new yarn over in our Ravelry group: Patterns for Something to Knit With Aran
