Kelbourne Woolens Andorra!

Yay! Winter finally arrived in Middle Tennessee over the weekend and at least one of us was really bummed that the sample of The Weekender sweater was hanging, snug as a bug, in the store and not in her closet! The Weekender is written for a worsted weight yarn; we held two strands of sport-weight Andorra together to create our very own marl - BOOM!! Who's the boss of our own knitting? We are! You can be too! 

Andorra is a merino, highland wool and mohair blend with a vintage feel in a gorgeous color palette. There are sixteen glorious shades available in the shop - which two will you choose to create your customized marl? Don't want to make a sweater? How 'bout a cabled hat instead? The Llumeneres hat pattern gloriously showcases the Andorra yarn in an allover cable stitch pattern!

The handy slider tins feature vintage illustrations of three woodland animals (Owl, Squirrel or Fox) covered in hand-poured resin. At 3.5" by 2.5", these tins are the perfect size to stow in your purse or knitting bag, but is also large enough to store your small knitting and sewing notions! The best part is that the bottom of the tin is magnetic, so everything will stay put when you slide it open. Handmade in British Columbia. Limited Edition.
