Deluxe Designer Bundle
This is the ultimate designer bundle, perfect for a knitter who enjoys exploring colour and pattern. This gift set contains a Hebridean 2 Ply Yarn Palette contains one 25g skein of each of the 34 shades of Hebridean 2 Ply, a set of shadecards showing the full Alice Starmore yarn range and the book Charts for Colour Knitting.
The Hebridean 2 Ply yarn palette was created to express the great visual aspects of my native Hebridean island. I have distilled the colours and textures of the natural world around me into 34 subtle shades. Alice Starmore ® Hebridean 2 Ply Yarn is made from premium quality pure new British wool, dyed in the fleece and skillfully blended into unique shades. It is hand-washed and dried in the Hebridean air which means that skeins vary slightly in weight. It is supplied in hand-made skeins and is priced per 25g at standard conditions. All yarn is weighed to order on balances which are checked daily. Click here for a digital shadecard of all Hebridean 2 Ply colours.
The Charts for Colour Knitting book is the perfect companion to a yarn palette and a remarkable compilation of charted designs for colour knitting, featuring a choice selection of my source material, arranged into four parts:
• Traditional patterns from Europe, Russia, and South America
• Adaptations from textiles and other art, including Japanese porcelain and Celtic metalwork
• My own geometric and nature-inspired originals
• Practical instructions that explain how to incorporate these motifs into unique designs
Suitable for beginning as well as advanced colour knitters, these charted designs can also be adapted to other crafts including weaving and embroidery. This expanded version explains how to incorporate colour into your work and features colour photographs of knitted swatches created expressly for this Dover edition.
Completing this gift bundle is a set of our handmade shade cards which feature a generous sample of every type and shade of yarn in our exclusive ALICE STARMORE® yarn ranges. They are presented in a set of 3 cards for ease of comparison when choosing colours for your projects.
Included in each set are two cards which feature 34 shades of ALICE STARMORE® HEBRIDEAN 2 PLY. These are presented in the groups – SEA & SHORELINE, BIRDS, MOOR & MOUNTAIN and SUMMER ISLE – the visual aspects of the Hebrides upon which Alice based her unique colour palette.
The third card completes the set and is composed of 12 shades of ALICE STARMORE® HEBRIDEAN 3 PLY, eight shades of ALICE STARMORE® BAININ and two shades of ALICE STARMORE® SCOTTISH FLEET.
