Beachcomber DK – the Yarn for Summer

Beachcomber DK ball of yarnWhen summer approaches, thoughts can turn away away from knitting and crochet.

However, with some balls of Beachcomber DK yarn and an easy to knit pattern, there is nothing better than sitting in the shade, with a cool breeze blowing on you and enjoying some quiet time to knit a beautiful, light-weight cardigan for the cool summer evenings.

The slub texture of Beachcomber DK makes it light to wear and allows the circulation of air through the garment.

This is the perfect yarn for the Australian summer. There is no excuse to stop knitting for the summer months!

Extraordinary Yarns – Supporting Local Wool Shops

Extraordinary Yarns are the distributor for Sirdar yarns to independent wool shops in Australia and New Zealand.

We strongly believe in the benefits of buying your yarn and patterns at your local wool shop.

In fact, we wrote a blog on the subject.

We do not sell yarns to the general public.

We supply yarns to independent wool shops – not the big haberdashery chain stores.

So, if you are looking for yarn, please find a retailer near you then give them a call, visit their shop or send them an email.

Most of all, local retailers always appreciate local customers getting in touch!
