King Cole Limited Edition Recycled DK

King Cole Limited Edition Recycled DK

This is a really sweet collection from King Cole and really well thought out. We're all thinking more about our impact on the earth and as knitters and crocheters and other yarn crafters I think we're in a unique postition that our consumption of clothing and fashion is often slower and more considered than our peers. I think that's why ethically sourced, local and recyced fibres are so popular for us but they often come with a really hefty price tag. No shade there, if it's worth it, it's worth it, but I think King Cole are doing a really excellent job of bring more thoughtful fibres to the masses. Check our the stunning Forest Aran

This yarn is made out of the 'waste' from creating other yarns - at the end of a run there's often fibre or yarn left that isn't enough to make into more packs of yarn so it's collected and reprocessed into this limited edition collection. Limited edition because they can't be sure of how much will be left at the end of the next run in each set of colours. I'm sure - though I haven't been told - that if this goes well there will be more limited edition collections in other shades which I'm really excited about. Because it's end of the line fibre from other colours, these colourways are all subtley, heatheredy, mish mashy combinations - not straight colours here (apart from the white, there's no variation in that). The colours, as you can see go so beautifully together too; imagine a background of stripes or blocks of the colour with some sort of fairisle or surface design in white. I am in heaven!!!!

The yarn itself is a sort of standard acrylic dk construction - three plies - nothing exciting. It's very soft though and has a very sweet drape.
