Quite often I find myself wishing I had fibre in a solid or semi-solid that would match and bring out the wonderful colours in handpainted fibre.

Sometimes it would be nice to have a solid yarn to use in conjunction with a handpainted yarn.

Sometimes it would be nice to have a solid single to ply with a handpainted single.

After a few months of mulling this over, I’ve decided to introduce what I’m calling “Duets” into my Etsy shop.

There is no hiding the fact that I love heathered yarns - lots of colours all smooshed together to create a rich and interesting yarn. Mix this in with a little handpainted beauty and voilĂ !

Introducing “Duets” from Southern Cross Fibre…

    OMG… I WANT! I love them…. They look like just the perfect fiber duets to create a stripy tank-top ;-)

    I may be adding something like this to my christmas list…. or birthday list, as both are coming round rather soon :-)
