Introducing New Kid Mohair / Silk – Hythe

LInda Lencovic Kettle Yarn Co.

Introducing some fabulous new Kid Mohair / Silk lace this week! The softest kid mohair you’ll ever feel, Hythe is spun with shimmering silk, then brushed to a form a nebulous cloud.

I’ve started with grey, of course 😊

50 grams = 420 m • 459 yds
Colourway: Cormorant – slightly cool grey.

This hue goes beautifully with all the fingering greys in stock.

Its closest matches are Islington Old Smoke and Baskerville Dark Leaden, but it would look equally amazing as added to any of the brights to create a new, slightly less saturated hue. Just imagine it with Islington Padparadscha pink!

I must admit that adding this to the roster of Kettle yarns is a bit of a selfish move on my part as I desperately wanted some for a Magnolia from the latest issue of Laine Magazine, Issue 4! This stunning jumper by Camilla Vad uses a strand of lace with a strand of fingering weight yarn

There are so many patterns out there that uses mohair/silk blends. Now just to find them all!

Shop Hythe

The Atlantis large bag is still out of stock with my supplier, but I did manage to get some of the small pouches!

Dive into an underwater world where enchanting merfolk search for treasures amongst tantalizing seaweed and a merman serves up a little gin! Shown here with Islington Sulphur. Keep your knitting notions, tools and everything else organised with this pouch!

LAST CHANCE – Shawl Pins & Introducing Aeolica Beanie

LInda Lencovic Baskerville, BEYUL, Kettle Yarn Co., original designs

 

YARN    |    BOOKS    |    PROJECT BAGS    |    SHAWL PINS   |    SALE

I am hoping to see some of you at EYF today, but if not, here are a few things for you. 😘

Introducing my new hat design – Aeolica Beanie.

The thinner version of last year’s super chunky Aeolica, this version has been reworked with gentle colour blocking and uses two Kettle double knitting yarns – new small-batch Baskerville DK and Beyul DK. A warm hat with a doubled brim to keep your ears warm, the Aeolica Beanie is worked  in a rhythmic slip-stitch pattern.

I’ve topped the hat off with a thick, juicy Beyul tassel for a bit of a change from pom poms.

You can reverse the Beyul and Baskerville if you want a lighter brim, as the silk content in the Beyul means it is a little less bouncy and creates a looser ribbing. In the prototype I used Boysenberry as the contrast.

LAST CHANCE – BRASS SHAWL PINS
I’ve just set the beautiful fair trade, white brass shawl pin listing to allow preorders. I’ve discovered that these are the last of the pins as my supplier will be unable to get them anymore.

I’ve brought in 3 new designs – Beetle, Moorish and Palm, which are stunning, and have brought back the Buck stick pin, along with restocking the Penanular Buck and Ewe pins.I will have a small number of these available at EYF this weekend.

Products only available as stocks last.  😉


Palm
£34

Beetle
£34

Moorish

Penanular Buck

Ewe stick pin

Buck stick pin

NOTE – Shipping will be delayed between March 8-21. All item purchased during this time will ship on the 22nd. Thank you! 😘

New Shawl and New Ramble: Atlantic Avenue by Kirsten Kapur!

LInda Lencovic Kettle Yarn Co.

I am so pleased to be able to introduce a new shawl from across the pond this week! Atlantic Avenue is worked in small batch British Ramble. Perfect for this hap-like shawl, Ramble melds the softest grades of traditional fibres into a delicately lightweight, springy yarn.

Kirsten chose Nightshade and Meadowsweet with a contrast of zingy green Burdock for her gorgeous sample and included slipped stitches, stripes, and tassels in this addictive knit.


Clockwise from top left: Damson, Sloe, MeadowsweetGorse, Heather, HawthorneBurdock  and Nightshade.

There is a new Ramble shade this week you could use this week for the contrast edging, a glorious purple called Damson! Here is a little animation to give you an idea of what the different hues would look like.

I chose Hawthorne for this generous blanket of a shawl. I can’t seem to get enough of the warm pink-red right now.

Drawing on a centuries-rich history of sheep rearing and wool production from the Shetland Isles and England’s smugglers paradise, Romney Marshes, this Romney / Shetland yarn is lightly processed, then woolen spun into a heathered, sheepy cloud. Varying slightly from batch to batch as it comes from smaller flocks, this yarn has limited stock of each run and will only be available periodically throughout the year as stocks last. As a heads up, I am running a bit low after the holidays and only have a few bags of each colour left in shop and will only have a small amount at Unravel.

Find Atlantic Avenue in Kirsten’s Ravelry shop along with a fantastic special offer in her Ravelry store. Buy any two single patterns and get a third free. Use coupon code JANUARY. Offer ends Feb 6th, so head over there now and get some stunning designs, like Kirsten’s Beyul Thistle Rambles shawl!

SHOP UPDATE: Hazel’s Stripes and new Islington Kelp

LInda Lencovic Kettle Yarn Co.

I’m introducing Islington fingering Kelp in this week’s update – a deep emerald with glints of bottle green!

This new hue is just in time for the release of Renée Callahan‘s gorgeous Hazel’s Stripes, another amazing design from her new RECOLLECTION.  Knit in Islington fingering, the finest British Bluefaced Leicester/ silk, it is a long, rectangular wrap which begins at one corner with just a few stitches and is worked on the bias towards the opposite corner.

Renée used 3 skeins of Islington for the sample:, 2 Copper and 1 Icicle.

This simple, sophisticated wrap can be dressed up in slinky silk-blend Islington or down as a scarf knit with rustic Ramble for an earthier, more rugged look. You can see and hear more about this amazing collection on Renée’s podcast! 🎉

Above is a little fun animation of more colour suggestions:
Voodoo and Blighty
Sacred Saffron and Squirrelly
Yurt and Light Squirrelly
Violet and Yurt
Turquoise Tarn and Old Smoke
Red Velvet and  Icicle
Gorse and Light Squirrelly
Burdock and  Icicle
Dusk and Blighty
Electric Amaranth and Icicle
Kelp and Light Squirrelly

Hazel would also be amazing with a skein of speckled yarn!

There are two skeins left in the Islington Speckle and, as I somehow managed to sell  my own skein of the Baskerville Dark ooak out from under myself this weekend, I dyed a few more Monday! There are 5 more skeins of this lovely yarn in shop now.

⭐️Kettle Krew Exclusive Preview – Baskerville DARK Speckle⭐️

LInda Lencovic Kettle Yarn Co.

More one of a kind speckle-y yarn this week! 💃🏾 I’ve dyed juicy gold, plum, chocolate and orange speckles on this glorious heathered charcoal, Gotland-rich base.

The skeins are available first to my lovely Kettle Krew members – from 1 pm GMT Friday January 19th to 9 am Saturday. Then listing will go live to everyone! As there are only 35 skeins they might sell out before Saturday. 😉

The link to the listing will be heading out to subscribers’ inboxes at 1pm Friday, so make sure you sign up before then to access the listing.

 

Jospehine LOVE and a shop update!

LInda Lencovic Baskerville, Kettle Yarn Co.

My good friend Renée Callahan has released new collection this week! Recollection features 6 designs to shine a spotlight on the material memories of projects, friendships, holidays and occasions.

I knit fingering weight Josephine in naturally heathered Baskerville Dark Nebulous with a contrast of  glimmering Islington in the lightest hand-dyed yarn possible, Icicle, paying homage to these two, stunningly different British breed yarns.



"These materials, with which we spend so much time when we knit, become impregnated with the memory of that project: the places we knit it, the person the finished object went to, the way we felt when we made it. Those things, feelings and memories are precious." - Renée Callahan



A symphony of contrasts, Nebulous’ softly rustic halo plays off of Icicles’ sleek shine, creating a joyful knit you won’t want to put down and will be proud to showcase over the years.

This collection has been a real labour of love for Renée and has been many years in the making, and I am really proud of her for bringing it all together so beautifully. You can see and hear more about this amazing collection on Renée's podcast, and get a chance to win one of three copies! 🎉

Baskerville, reviewed by Clara Parkes, the Yarn Whisperer:
‘The fibers have been combed for smoothness and cohesion, but the yarn still had a pleasant degree of stickiness and “grab” to it. The two plies stayed together, never snagging or untwisting. I moved from a scrumptious garter-stitch to a perky three-dimensional feather and fan before settling on smooth stockinette. Each stitch was a pleasure.’ Clara Parkes, Knitter's Review

NEW Baskerville DK small-batch British yarn!

LInda Lencovic Kettle Yarn Co.

Image

Baskerville DK -  Exmoor Blueface / Gotland / Silk 100g = 255 yards (233 meters)
I hope you are all winding down for the holidays this week and planning your holiday makes.

I got an unexpected Xmas present from the John Arbon mill this year - my first batch of Baskerville DK! I wasn't expecting this till well after the holidays but spin master John managed to find enough super soft Gotland for this yuletide batch.
Image

Hailing from the mysterious West Country moors Baskerville is lovingly spun in small batches exclusively for Kettle Yarn Co. This new British blend is like no other, melding the lustrous, velvety crimp of fine British Gotland and the frothy loft of Exmoor Blueface. With a hint of luminous silk adding a gentle shimmer, this unique blend is a subtly modern take on traditional rustic yarns.

A gentle 2-ply yarn, Baskerville is spun worsted, twisted lightly, to create the airy thick-and-thin character of traditional handspun with combed fibres for strength and softness. This unique blend blooms fully on blocking with separate stitches hugging together to create a light warm fabric with subtle drape that wears beautifully.

A truly exceptional heirloom quality yarn, it is simple to keep your Baskerville items looking new for many years to come as any tiny pills can easily be removed without damage to other fibres.


Email me if you fancy being a test knitter for the hat after the holidays. ;-*

The  natural heathered grey, Dawn, is glorious - perfect for quick hats and mitts! I've designed a new hat in the blend, a hat to go with the Aeolica Wristwarmers, but I it needs some testing before it can be released. Here is it so you can get an idea of the stitch definition in Baskerville DK. It is pretty amazing!



As you can see in the header, I've already cast on I've cast on Ancasta from the first Laine Magazine in Baskerville DK. It is going to be delicious. 🙊

I hope you love the new thicker weight as much as I do... Find it in shop today!

NEW Beyul SINGLES!

LInda Lencovic BEYUL, Kettle Yarn Co.

I’m introducing Beyul SINGLES this week! From Baby Yak • Silk • ethically sourced superwash Merino, this super soft, light fingering is made from one ply of fibre, which makes it delicate and best suited to light use items that will not see a lot of abrasion like shawls and hats.

✨The 100g skeins hold a huge 480 m / 522 y, perfect for a big shawl.✨

The available hues are:
Iceberg
Steppe
Rhubarb
Yurt


yurt, iceberg, rhubarb

I’ve only dyed 5 skeins of each colour for this update, but the listings have been set to allow back orders whilst I gauge the interest for this blend. Once the available skeins are gone you can continue to purchase and I will fill all orders by the end of November.

PLEASE NOTE: I recommend singles for low-abrasion items only as they are much more delicate than multi-plied Beyul, and will pill as a result.


steppe, yurt, iceberg

Also new this week in thick, warm Beyul DK is beautiful duck’s egg, Iceberg. I’ve started Sharman in Bristol Ivy’s new book, Knitting Outside the Box and the blend is perfect for the lace pattern.

It is SO addictive and such a pleasure to knit, watching the luscious, sculptural petals form in this deliciously thick yarn. This light icy blue really plays up the blend’s heathered construction and the silk highlights the texture. Perfection.

Steppe, Black Quartz, Yurt and Delft have also recently been restocked and there are a good range of hues to pick from for your own Sharman. Find them all in shop now.

Shop Update: New hues in DK!

LInda Lencovic Aran, BEYUL, ISLINGTON DK, Kettle Yarn Co.

Yarns shown from top left: Beyul Rhubarb, Boysenberry, Islington DK Sangria, Beyul Fleur, Balsam, Yurt.

This week’s shop update is all about thicker, warmer yarns. I’ve got two new colours and some restocked hues in Islington DK and Beyul DK. The two blends can easily be used together as they are exactly the same thickness.

First new huw is Islington DK in autumnal Sangria. Perfect with restocked  neutrals Nutkin and Squirrelly, this hue is – a rich oxblood.

Also new this week, but in the Beyul baby Yak, silk, Merino blend is Fleur – a gentle blush pink, more saturated than Balsam. You can see the two side by side above to get a sense of how lovely they’d work as an ombre with Yurt.

Restocked this week from top left above:
Islington fingering and DK Nutkin, Kingfisher, DK Blighty and Beyul fingering and DK Delft.

I’ve added a listing on the shop this week to let you pre-order skeins of Waltham Aran greys, Peaky Blinder and silver Graveney. Waltham is spun from the softest non-superwash British Bluefaced Leicester for knits that will last you decades.

Here are some brilliant Waltham designs to keep you warm this winter! From left: Paulina Popiolek’s lush cardi-coat Kodiak, my Brynja cardigan, glorious warm All I want by Joji Locatelli and the versatile huge of a cardi, Angelus Novus by Renée Callahan.

I’ve decided to sell this weight on pre-order only and will be making it available when I can. The listing will only be open until the end of October, so get it now to avoid disappointment. 😉

Take Two! Introducing Baskerville – dawn to dusk II

LInda Lencovic Kettle Yarn Co.

Baskerville dawn to dusk II is the second collection of designs showcasing small- batch British breed Baskerville yarn. Featuring the unique blend in four knit designs by Renée CallahanBristol IvyLinda Lencovic and Karie Westermann, these designs show off Baskerville’s versatility through a range of simple techniques.This collection is available as a 24 page booklet printed on uncoated, FSC (from well managed forests or recycled stock manufactured to ISO 14001 ), chlorine-free paper with environmentally friendly vegetable-based inks.

Take a closer look at the fabulous patterns included and get full pattern details on Ravelry.

All colours of small-batch Baskerville, British Exmoor Blueface / Gotland / Silk, are now back in stock and ready to ship.

from left: Leaden, Nebulous, Dawn, Umbra, Eventide, Dusk

I also have skeins of the special-edition avocado dye left from last week you can use for these patterns:

from left:  Avocado 1 – A very light blush that reads almost as Oyster, Avocado 2 – A light delicate pink / peach, natural Dawn

Avocado is Good For You: more naturally dyed Islington & Baskerville!

LInda Lencovic Baskerville, ISLINGTON - British BFL/Silk, Kettle Yarn Co.

from top left: Baskerville Dawn, Avocado 1, Avocado 2, Islington Avocado, Islington Copper, Beyul Rhubarb, Ramble Hawthorne, Heather, Meadowsweet.

I’ve naturally dyed 3 more special-edition batches of Baskerville and Islington with avocado! Stunning paired with grey or browns, this delicate blush hue is a perfect foil for the other madder-like reds I have this season and I’ve created a colour wheel above with the various hues I’ve got in stock to show you how wonderful they look next to each other.

There are three blush-y pink-peaches available this time. Two are in my small-batch Baskerville, British Gotland, Exmoor and Silk. Shown below next to natural grey Dawn, Avocado 1 is a warm pink/Oyster, whilst Avocado 2 is more saturated blush:

The Islington – British Bluefaced Leicester / Silk, directly above, is slighty darker than previous batches and would be amazing used with the other 2! The contrast of the shine in the silk against the halo of Gotland would be DIVINE. 😉

Every skein is truly one of a kind as there is a larger variation of colour due to the the natural dye process, and there are a only a small number available in each batch due to the number of Avocados needed to achieve the colour.

The first time I dyed with avocado I immediately cast on a Sourcebook Sideways Pullover by Norah Gaughan, using a strand of Dawn with the avocado dyed yarn to make it a full DK weight. This jumper is, hands down, the knitting make I am thus far most proud of! (Evidenced by smug face below). 😋

I am sorely tempted to drop all other projects and get a Starting Point by Joji Locatelli on the needles this weekend in some of these with an accent of black Islington Voodoo and Ochre gold. I think this would be another hands-down winner, and a portable blanket as well!

I am releasing all 3 colours this Friday Sept 22nd at 5 pm GMT. Be forewarned, these generally sell out fast, so try to get the skeins while they last.  😉

Shop Avocado dyed!
