Erika Knight British Yarn

The Made By Ewe shop is now stocking yummy balls of Erika Knight British Blue Yarn.

BB Group A5British Blue is deliciously soft Bluefaced Leicester yarn with a subtle sheen.  The wool of the Bluefaced Leicester is Britain’s most luxurious fibre and has been compared to cashmere.  DSCF3304

It is SO SOFT to knit with, I can hardly keep my hands off it

Pretty A5
The yarn comes in cute little 25g balls and is perfect for baby garments.  Now, who do we know who has just had a baby?!
French A5
The colours are soft and chalky, very modern, none of the typical sugar pink and baby blue here.  They complement each other beautifully.Gift A5-1

We have 3 colours currently in stock – Gift (lemon), Pretty (pink) and French (blue) with more on order – there seems to have been a bit of a rush on stocks at Erika Knight recently – I wonder why!

Yarn can be purchased here.


About madebyewe

Hello, and welcome to my blog, where I talk about the ups and downs of running a crafty business, knitting and life. I learnt to knit when I was a child in the 1970s. I think my Mum taught me, though it may have been one of my Nans. Both Nans were great crafters and my Mum knitted, when she had time. My childhood was full of wearing Mum's warm and cosy handknit jumpers to school and playing with yarn by the fire, making presents for my family and clothes for my toys. When I grew up, I started a business designing children's handknitted jumpers. Now I spend some of my time desgining gardens, as well as designing knitting. The garden design business is well established; the knitting design business is just starting out. I love the rhythmic quality of knitting, the feel of woolly yarn in my hands and the way a project grows beneath my fingers. It is relaxing and productive at the same time. I especially love vintage knitted toys and the quirky simplicity of the patterns. They were often made in times of austerity, when money and supplies were short, but the desire to create something fun inspite of this, shines through. I am a supporter of the Campaign for Wool, supporting the British wool industry, and using British yarn for my kits. Where would we be without fields of fluffy sheep to admire? Baa Humbug to acrylic!
