Hand dyed/wahm aran at good prices?

Postby Dora » Tue May 22, 2012 2:30 pm

I have some birthday money and I'd like to make a large sized soaker for my lo so where shall I go for reasonable prices? I imagine I won't need more than 150grams and I'm not bothered so much about a trim. Recommendations appreciated please!! I like *bright* high contrast colours (non-girly) :) x

Have you look in the WAHM wonders above. There is a few listed there. You can go look at their websites if nothing appeals. Pixie Knits are a long term fav though

I did look at the wham's and although they're gorgeous the rainbows contain pink which I don't think I'd buy even if I had a girl tbh-i'll take at jo's page now x

If you go to pixie knits she can dye up whatever you want and he is very reasonable IMO.
I can get large soaker out of 100g BTW

I think you're a bit better than me though! I've allowed contingency because I'm a bit of a dunce with patterns (I've only just learned you see) :giggle:

Oh I've been knitting for years and am still a total dunce :lol:
I do love pixie knits yarn she does have some instock which you might like but then you'd probably be looking at 100g main and 50g trim as not sure the hand dyes is sold in 50g IYKWIM
