Inspired from the days that Daphne was living and working in London, this yarn is reminiscent of the traditions and understated glory of Knightsbridge, a prestigious area of the capital city. Surrounded by inspiring architecture and some of the finest examples of beautiful interiors and fabrics, Daphne dreamt of developing a range of yarn that captured the essence of her inspiring walks through Hyde Park and along the impressive streets of Knightsbridge. The resulting yarn is warm, soft and sophisticated so works as well for garments as it does accessories and luxurious items for the home. Somewhere between a worsted and a DK weight yarn, this is a blend that is versatile in that it blooms and responds to the stitch patterns chosen. A tweedy, heathered colouring to each hank gives Knightsbridge its traditional appearance that lends a certain elegance to all fabrics worked up in this exceptional yarn. This yarn is created from dyed fibres in multiple colours which are then spun and twisted into a lovely 2 ply yarn. The merino, baby llama and silk all take up the dye differently and the interplay of multiple colours in each shade creates a lovely subdued palette. Knightsbridge is a yarn for makers and crafters seeking to create a handmade item for their wardrobe that will elevate their favourite outfits to new possibilities.
