Kiko by Sirdar
I was a bit disap[ointed. It was not clear from the description that all the patterns were in chunky wool - I looked hard to determine this.
Love the appearance of this yarn, further info TBA
I have not decided what to make with the skein of purple and the one in navy, although they feel pleasant to the touch and the colours fabulous but might incorporate them into something in one solid colour as I am not sure how far the two skeins will go. I might do a swatch at the knitting circle this week. Not complete as I have just tested a swatch of alpaca, not over-impressed in its present, damp condition. Check for typos if you wish to publish.
