Falcon: Ok this one is pretty geeky, guys. Are you ready? You know that Captain America bloke? You know all the movies he’s been in recently? What about his friend, Falcon? The guy that uses amazingly engineered wings to perform missions? He is pretty badass in my opinion!! These are inspired by the depictions of him in comics and the films. I love the fluffiness of the feather-like one and the steely-grey on some of the others. And we couldn’t have this set without a pop of that red, which features in his costume. Also these are just amazing neutrals to add to your stash, and everyone needs some neutrals to make the other ones pop… oh wait, is that a metaphor for Falcon/Captain’s relationship. Whoops.

Designed with the creative knitter in mind, these mini skeins give you the perfect opportunity to play with colour. If you like working on little projects or big projects with a million colours, this is for you! Stripes, patchwork, intarsia or fair isle, there's a million and one combinations. Mix and match colour packs to your hearts delight, add them to your colour stash for your Kaffe Fassett inspired projects or your Hexipuffs. Even get two packs and make a pair of matching socks!
Chosen by hand from our Recycled Coned Yarn collection (we source old machine knitting coned wool that are unwanted and unloved), we've wound each little skein by hand. Creating magical colourways by mixing strands of yarns together there's just no telling what kind of fibres you'll end up with… cotton, wool, acrylic, mystery fibre… a lot of our cones don't have labels but that doesn't make them any less special.
Knitting with multiple strands can take a little getting used to, just remember to knit all the strands into each stitch and take care when you're winding these little guys into balls.
