Gum Blossom Yarns

2018 February - True Love

Here are three types of Valentine's Day fingering yarns, as part of our 2018 "Natural Colours of the World".
Each month there is:
  • a Sock yarn
  • a 50:50 Silk-Merino (Platypus) and
  • a 100% Merino fully-Australian yarn, permaculture raised   (Millpost Merino). 
Available from February 14, there is at least one colour way in each of these yarn types, each with individual names. Plus a "bouquet" of yarn minis. My daughter loved the movie "Love Actually".
4 ply yarns available are:
  1. "Love Actually" Sock - mostly pink (beet) with speckles of red, purple and grey-black
  2. "Actually Love" (silk:merino) - mostly white, with speckles of red, pink blue, purple and grey 
  3. "Love Hurts" - strongly red (cochineal) with dark purple, grey  and black speckles. Available in Sock yarn and "Big Love" in Millpost Merino yarn
  4. "Love Bunch" - mini-sock pack: red, purple, pink, black, speckled white. These are 20g each.
These are the "True Love" yarns.

With 80% superfine merino and 20% nylon, this yarn is a smooth, squishy-soft and durable yarn. It is the perfect choice for socks, shawls, baby clothing and cardigans. The softness and drape of this yarn makes it ideal for any garment worn next to the skin.  One skein will easily make an adult pair of socks.
