Something to Knit With Aran
We have just a few shades of this lovely yarn remaining.
In a range of our favourite shades, Something to Knit With Aran is brilliant for textural knits and bold colourwork. The blend of highland wool from Peru, and superfine alpaca, creates a yarn that's springy to knit with and blocks to a soft but hard-wearing fabric.
The Totally Tubular Mittens (for learning the tubular cast-on method) require 2 x 50 skeins of this yarn, and the Peaks and Troughs Hat (for learning double-knitting) uses 1 x 50g skein each of 3 different colours. Both of these designs are found in Boost Your Knitting.
Whether you fancy a quick-to-knit hat, like Fabales or Concentricity by Woolly Wormhead; or a stunning colourwork sweater, such as Treysta or Telja by Jennifer Steingass; Something to Knit With Aran is the perfect choice.
