Cat and Sparrow "Autumn Leaves Hat" Wensleydale DK Yarn Kit
To celebrate Rachael of Cat and Sparrow publishing her lovely Autumn Leaves hat pattern, we are selling these beautiful yarn kits hand-dyed by Rachael in her British Wensleydale DK.
After purchasing the kit, you will receive a free digital copy of the pattern. If you want to join in our online Knitalong, Rachael has set up an "Autumn Leaves Hat KAL" Facebook Group and can also join in on Instagram.
You can join in the Knitalong with any DK yarn. If you wish to do so, the hat pattern is available separately here
The yarn kit contains 50g of each colour so you can use them whichever way round you like!
Wensleydale wool has a lovely sheen to it. I'd call it smooth but that would imply a lack of woolliness and it's definitely a woolly wool but it's not as bouncy as some other woollen yarns. If you're interested in breed specific yarns this is a really lovely, and interesting, one to try.
Hat knit in the round.
