A yarn a day - BC Garn Silkbloom Fino!

As promised over the weekend I am going to post about each of the new yarns this week - one each day...leaving room for a special announcement on Friday!

First up is the absolutely beautiful BC Garn Silkbloom Fino, suzy hausfrau is excited to be the first to bring this yarn to Australia.

BC Garn is a family run business in Denmark that was established in 1972. Their yarns are made from natural fibres and are considered to be a specialist in silk yarns in Europe. I knew that suzy hausfrau needed this yarn as soon as I saw it - but picking what colours was really, really hard. There are 25 colours in the full range, but I have just started with 9, and hope to grow the range as people become just as in love with it as I am.

Photos just don't do it justice, it has a shine and shimmer that is incredible!

So details are:
Weight: Fingering/4-ply
Unit: 50g
Yardage: 199 m/ 218 yds
Needle Size: 3-3.5 mm
Tension: 28 stitches to 10cm/4 in
Fibre: 55% merino wool/45% silk
