We thought it was about time that crocheters got a chance to make a one to two hour scarf, and Katia Roma, a new yarn from Spanish company Katia, is a unique and beautiful way to do it! Katia Roma is a ribbon yarn with a scalloped edge, which we have available in 3 in rich colourways. To make a scarf you simple crochet 4 strips together, using a 4ply or double knit yarn. Alternatively you could knit it in to a garment to create a feature panel or ruffle. Just one skein makes a scarf.

Manos Del Uruguay Fino
Manos Del Uruguay Silk Blend Fino yarn is a luxurious blend of merino and silk and a new addition to the Silk Blend family! Hand dyed in large kettles to create a marbleized, subtly striated effect that forms a rich palette of glorious colours. No two skeins are exactly alike and there are no dye lots. The yarn is hand dyed in Uruguay by a women’s co-operative. Each hank is signed by the women who made it.
Relaunched for Autumn 2012 due to popular demand, Mirasol Hacho yarn is a 100% wool that is hand dyed in an array of lovely colors. The yarn is soft and perfect for bright kids’ items and accessories. The Mirasol Project is based on Fairtrade.
