Alice Starmore Scottish Hand Knitwear Yarns and Designs

Dear Knitter,

We are delighted to welcome in 2022 with a brand new shade of Hebridean 2 Ply. Our yarn colours take a lot of time to develop so our Glen shade was a major focus for me throughout the last year. It is inspired by the rich, deep tones found in the mossy banks and glens of the Hebridean moorland, and so I've added our Glen shade to our Moor & Mountain range. You can find our new Glen 2 Ply yarn here.

You can see our Glen 2 Ply knitted up in a small Cluaran Shawl, and it also features as one of the shades in the White Jacobite Rose.

This month we are also very happy to welcome back our Capercaille 2 Ply, which is now available here.

Along with the Capercaille we also have the Oregon Spring Vest and the Alba Pullover back in stock.

Jade finished a dramatic Lapwing Collar in Raven colours towards the end of last year, and you can now see it modelled by Evie and Louise from two very different shoots. Evie wears it with a Lapwing Pullover in Kelpie and Shearwater and a pair of dungarees in a very practical outfit. Louise is more dressed-up at Cambo Gardens in a long wool skirt and Harris Tweed jacket.

As it is the beginning of a new year we have added a round-up archive of 2021 to the website. Last year was a particularly busy one, with 3 new video class kits, and a revamp of our free tutorials section with a full stranded tutorial made using our new filming and audio equipment. We also created new designs and patterncards, lots of new dyelots of Hebridean 2 Ply, a wide range of shoots, and even a TV appearance! You can browse the 2021 archive here.

We have just as much planned for 2022, and I look forward to sharing it all as the year goes on.

Happy knitting,
