Would you like a yarn kit?

Yarn kits are available for all of our project workshops. You can find the exact colour that Carol chose herself or choose from colour combinations provided.

We have yarn kits available in Blasta. Blasta's woollen spun structure makes it ideal for knitting cables, giving both good stitch definition and a light bounce.
