Poetry, a sumptuous blend of merino wool and camel
If you love butter soft yarn, you'll love Poetry - a blissfully beautiful blend of finest merino wool, microfibre and camel.
Camel has similar properties to cashmere; it's super soft, it thermo regulates, and it's breathable, so it will keep you warm in winter and cool in summer.
The shade palette is deliciously signature Willow & Lark style, muted jewels and colours that sing with British countryside tones - Red Rose, Peashoot Green and Buttercup send us into raptures of nostalgia.
Poetry is a DK weight yarn with a pretty twist, with a tension of 22 stitches, 30 rows to 10cm/4" and it's interchangeable with Nest in all the Willow & Lark patterns.
Ramble, wool, wool and more wool
Full of loft and character, this super soft DK superwash wool is robust, with a good twist and exemplary stitch definition. It’ll keep you as warm as toast, and its glorious colour palette is full of character! Perfect for colourwork – combine Bluebell and Lichen Green, Rhubarb Pink with Lemon Drizzle – it’s a crochet dream! Dream of whimsical cardigans, tapestry crochet cushions and fabulous scarves, hats and blankets!
