My Mama Knits at The Woolly Brew
So excited that My Mama Knits Choufunga hand dyed yarn is now available to buy in the Pittenweem shop and on our website.
Sunshine hand dyes her yarn in small batches at home in the Borders of Scotland. Choufunga is her 4ply sock yarn.
Choufunga is a classic 75% superwash merino and 25% nylon blend. It has a smooth finish with a bit of stretch and strength and it is perfect for socks and so much more!
A favourite for one hank shawls and scarfs, it's exciting to combine multiple shades for larger accessorises or garments.
Why not try these dark to bright combos...
Or how about a gradual change from one colour to another?
Hand dyed yarn can feel like a leap of faith sometimes - the colours and their placement can change dramatically depending on how you use them.
But that's half the fun!
Sometimes the colours come together in a hazy way, spread out across the fabric. Other times they can pool together creating flashes of colour.
And sometimes the stitch pattern brings together little pops of colour or it can diffuse the effect.
Here are some projects that have used My Mama Knits Choufunga
(These colours are not available at The Woolly Brew but you may find that at Sunshine's website My Mama Knits)

I am working on a new free shop pattern - a simple side-to-side scarf. More on that soon! In the meantime, our other free simple shawl and cowls patterns would work really well with just one 100g hank of Choufunga.
