I am so pleased to announce that the Uncommon Thread is now being stocked by The Knitted Poppy in Australia. This lovely online knitting and accessory shop is run by Jennie, a fan of hand dyed yarns.
In the shop you will find Lush Worsted a 80% Merino, 10% Nylon and 10% Cashmere base. Lush Worsted is luxuriously soft, wonderfully textured and beady - this is the worsted weight version of our beloved Lush Sock. The skeins come in 245 yards (225 metres) per 100 gramsand you will find a variety of colours, like this one featured on the website.
Also stocked at The Knitted Poppy is Posh Fingering, a 70% Superwash Bluefaced Leicester, 20% Silk and 10% Cashmere base. This is a smooth plied yarn that again, you will find in a variety of colours like the one featured in the image above. It has amazing shine and a soft handle and is very versatile- it may be used for shawls, garments, socks and baby items. The yardage is 440 yards (402 metres) per 100 gram skein.
Many thanks to Jennie at The Knitted Poppy for stocking TUT yarns. You can find both bases here.
