King Cole Forest Aran

King Cole Forest Aran

I AM SO EXCITED BY THIS! It's ten colours of the most divine aran in the world - a wool blended with acrylic, nylon and viscose that has all been recycled! You heard right, every bit of this has been recycled from old sweaters, ends of yarn from the manufacturing process and plastic bottles. Absolutely amazing!

It has a slightly nubbly texture, each colour is a blend of different colours and nepps meaning it looks like a proper woolly aran - but it's soft and even sort of lightweight (although it achieves true aran tension). It's going to look beautiful in colourwork and stripes because of the heathered-y-ness but it's not so fancy as to get in the way of cabling. Of course, it's also that sort of cobblestone texture that looks perfect with just a simple half treble or garter stitch. This is so good!

Also, the price. Need I say more?!
