New Shop Yarn - Loyal dk

Shades of blue, Loyal DK


I have been busy recently changing my yarn shop from an American hosting site (Storenvy) to an  Australian one (Spiffy Stores), and I am happy to say that I think we are good to go!  Storenvy have been great, it was really simple to use and set up, the drawback was that it only deals with US dollars, which was becoming a headache with exchange rates varying so often.  So this Australian one should be nice and simple and all in Australian dollars, so much easier to manage.

It is a little bit different to navigate, but it seems clear enough to me, if you have a look, I'd love to hear what you think!

Anyway, I thought I would share a bit of a colour hit with you, it is miserable and cold here today, so this is just the thing to brighten my day!  Here's something for the colour lovers out there, loud and bright!

This is a new yarn to Little Woollie Makes Yarn Store and I am loving all the beautiful vibrant colours!  It is the Loyal DK machine washable 100% wool from Naturally Yarns in NZ.  It is a great priced pure wool and I am finding it a lovely wool to use for crocheting and I think it would be perfect knitted up into children's wear or blankets.  But look at the colours!  Such a lovely rainbow of shades, and this isn't even the whole range!

Blues and greens, Loyal DK
 I  particularly like all the blues and greens and sea colours, there are quite a ferw to choose from!

Warm shades Loyal DK
 There are quite a lot of warm purples and deep rosey shades too, I don't often use these colours in my things, but I think I might try and come up with something to expand my colour palette.

I am thinking there are heaps of great colour combos here for my wheels within wheels blanket centres,   I think the grey will off set the colour explosion nicely.  Or maybe a gorgeous granny striped crochet blanket?

 I have some other gorgeous yarn to show you tomorrow, something very lush!  I am so loving having this little yarn store, being surrounded by all this colour and beautiful yarn is making me want to crochet all day long!  :)

If you would like to see more, feel free to have a look at my shop over here!
