The Cats & Mice design in the book is for a vest, but I wanted to use the whimsical pattern in a baby blanket using warm colours of our Hebridean yarn. The blanket is perfect for a baby but it would also look lovely on a chair by any fireside.

When the UK lockdown was announced on Monday 23rd of March we took the strong advice of health and scientific experts and made the decision to pause orders and deliveries from the Virtual Yarns website. However safe we can make our workplace, we cannot send packages without involving delivery workers both here and at the point of destination. At this key time we need to play our part in reducing physical contact and closing temporarily is the most responsible way to achieve that. When circumstances allow we will re-open for orders. Follow Us to keep informed about our latest posts and updates.

Some of the designs and extra amendments available exclusively from Virtual Yarns for the book The Children's Collection.
