Updates for Lichen and Lace

With our recent shipment of Lichen and Lace now happily settled into the shop we have also updated our webshop with the new colours!

So many gorgeous skeins to choose from including some newly added colours to the Lichen and Lace line. Welcome colours Coral and Sugar Plum to The Knit Café. Nice to meet you!

Have you seen the latest edition of Amirisu Magazine? If you are like me you are smitten with the Lumens scarf pattern which features Lichen and Lace 80/20 in two colours which are now in stock at The Knit Café.

Nothing says Happy New Year like Hedgehog Fibre!

Our Happy New Year present has arrived and it’s a big box of Hedgehog Fibre Yarn! Our lucky day is also a lucky day for you if you are also a fan of this hand dyeing enterprise.
Hedgehog Fibre has rocked the yarn landscape with their amazing colour explosions like fireworks!

27 colours of Hedgehog Fibre Sock are now in stock. This yarn is great for socks or shawls or SWEATERS! WOW! wouldn’t that be great!

In addition to the glorious colour ways that Hedgehog Fibres regularly stock they also create whimsical limited edition colours they call “Potluck” colours. The Knit Café has 4 of these potluck colours! See them above. There are only four of each so come in soon if they strike your fancy.

We also have 10 delectable colours of Merino Aran. This extra squishy two ply yarn screams HAT! to me, but you decide.
