This years 12 Days of Christmas parcels started with a hand dyed braid on 25th December, but then the following days all contain brand new colours of Superfine Merino & Silk.
This is the exact same fibre composition as all the rest of the stock currently in the shop, so can be used interchangeably in the same projects. This was specially commissioned for the 12 Days of Christmas parcels, which meant I had to order lots of each colour. As a result the spare fibre is going online at midnight (GMT) on the day featuring each individual colour. Anyone can buy this spare fibre... it's really rather pretty! You can find it in the Superfine Merino & Silk section of the shop, and the usual Buy 2, Get a 3rd Half price offer applies to this fibre as well.
I've given them seasonal names, picking out traditions from all around the world.
Next up is Panettone, a soft cream colour, with slight peach undertones.
This colour is called Panettone, after the Italian baked delicacy. I have a confession.... I can't stand panettone. I find it dry and really boring. I'd much rather have a piece of Stollen with it's generous hunk of marzipan!
I won't be baking one this Christmas, but if you feel the urge this is a recipe from an Italian Pastry chef.
