For last-minute makes, three ideal yarns from Yeoman for making scarves are Butterfly, Pellonia and Jewel.
Butterfly 4-ply is an 85% Viscose and 15% Polyester yarn, available on 250g cones and there are six mouth-watering shades. Pellonia 4-ply is 100% Microfibre Nylon available in ten shades on 350g cones. (Hand wash at 40c.)
Jewel is a wonderfully soft Chunky/Aran weight yarn that’s 56% Acrylic, 24% Wool and 20% Nylon. It can be hand or machine knitted and it has a wonderful sparkle. (Hand or machine wash at 30c with a warm rinse.) The subtle glitter will please everyone and the thickness will soon knit up into a lovely hat and scarf.
