Yorkshire Mixture scarves

About this project

At present, I am developing ways of using surplus suiting worsted yarn, from industrial production, that would otherwise end up in a skip.  This fine wool yarn is available locally but the colour range is limited, mainly very dark and dull shades. 

Watch this space for starling-inspired colourways using navy, black and charcoal.
