Orange you glad it's time for a new colour!

Posted by Emma Wilkinson on

As the Rainbow challenge switches from red to orange, it's time to put orange yarns in the spotlight.
ORANGE CHALLENGE runs from the 13th May to 9th June

Cahlista is not stocked in the permanent range, but can be ordered in. I'm including though as it is a great match to Milano, which doesn't have an orange! Cahlista means beautiful - and it is! A softly plied 100% un-mercerized cotton in aran weight. Has a lovely drape, and very soft and smooth!

 

Creme de la Creme is another great cotton - and we have both solid orange 'Brite Orange' and variegated 'Orange tones' (pictured) This is the yarn used in the Kaleidoscope Blanket, which would make a great orange project! 

Papatya Batik 554-07 fades from orange to white in a beautiful  soft acrylic - 8ply, 100g/360m means it's great value too! 

Cicibebe Cake in #105 is the same colours (and weight/meterage) as the Papatya Batik #7, but separated out - which enables even more colour work options! 

If you would like something chunkier - Caron Cakes 'Spice Cake' might just be the perfect treat for you! 10 ply and 200 g!

 

We hope you are excited for the next zesty chapter of the challenge! Stay tuned for the orange section of my rainbow fade blanket - and a showcase of red entries! 

 

Emma.
