Door 10 – something special

The postman just delivered something that I have been waiting for since days, so it is almost like Christmas already 🙂

Last week I had ordered a couple of balls of a Merino/Silk DK of Dye For Yarn . Or was it Dye For Wool? It doesn’t really matter as both two the same two German dyers who produce really nice stuff. They have different blends of the finest fibres, lots of lace and fingering weight, occasionally heavier ones too. I have so far tried different Merino/Silk blends and they are just incredibly soft and nice to wear on the skin.

They only dye small batches in the same dye, so you are really getting something very special for very special occasions. And the colours are all just gorgeous, there are very subtle variations which makes the knitted item just look so much more vivid. I always struggle to choose and usually end up buying too much 🙂

And knitting with it is just a pleasure, I can’t wait….

And it is just a bonus that this special yarn comes from a small company rather than a big one, so it is even better.

What is your favourite yarn for the very special knits?
