The Linne Belt and Sporran Bag in Creative Course 3 have been made with Alice Starmore™ Hebridean 2 Ply pure new wool yarn. It is a unique artisan yarn which has been designed and made to ensure that it can be felted to perfection so that the correct sizes, shapes and effects can be achieved using the processes demonstrated in the video course. The yarn has also been designed to produce high definition and glowing results in embroidery stitches, as shown in the sample Sporran Bags and Linne Belts.

The Creative Course 3 yarn pack has been designed to give you a base from which to begin your creative journey. It contains the following –

200g of Alice Starmore™ Hebridean 2 Ply yarn in a main colour for making 1 Sporran Bag, Handle and matching Linne Belt, plus 2 swatches.
25g each of 10 colours of your choice of Alice Starmore™ Hebridean 2 Ply yarn. These colours can be used for embroidery, beads and decorative cords.

All embroidery, beads and cords have been made using small amounts of Alice Starmore™ Hebridean 2 Ply. The amount of yarn you will require will depend on how much embroidery you add to each piece and what type of stitches you use. Small scraps and leftovers from other projects are ideal if you are planning to work embroidery using many colours. Aim to build a collection of colours to practise stitches.

This pack gives a good palette of colours for starting out with a Linne Belt and Sporran Bag. If you are planing on making a 3 colour belt make 2 of your 10 Embroidery choices colours which tone well with your main colour choice. For example if you are choosing Limpet as your main colour make Selkie and Kelpie two of your embroidery choices. That will give you enough yarn to use those colours to shade your 3 colour Linne belt.
