And all I got was this gorgeous yarn:
I had never heard of Biggan Design, yet now I’ve seen it, and Biggan Ryd-Dups in several places. Look at these colors – I couldn’t figure out a way to put them on the page here. The yarn is merino crossed with Border Leicester. According to the website it offers the “softness of merino and the durability of the Border Leicester’s longer, stronger fibres. The result is a yarn with a wonderful buoyancy and spring that makes it fun and easy to knit with.” It certainly feels like it will be.
I can’t wait to start swatching. A hat, a cowl? Do I have enough for one of Kirsten Kapur’s fabulous designs? Or maybe I’ll just pet it for a while.
