Poetry, a sumptuous blend of merino wool and camel

Poetry from Willow & Lark

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.
