Illustrious Naturals

With a name like Illustrious Naturals, it has to be good. This blend of Falkland wool and British alpaca is soft and buttery, and the natural shades are rich and so sheepy.
This gorgeous stuff comes from a lovely British company called West Yorkshire Spinners, which has a long tradition of producing beautiful yarns from British wools.
We now have a few of their yarns in the shop, but I wanted you to all see this gorgeous hat that we have knit up in the Illustrious Naturals.
I believe this is the Pewter colorway, which is the only one with this kind of slow color fade that is expected from a marled yarn. The others will knit up as solid natural shades. Pop in and check out this beautiful new yarn! Stay tuned for more yarns from West Yorkshire Spinners...
