What is in a name?

When I started The Knitting Swede, I started very small... I only had two [4ply] bases, one was 100% BFL and the other 75% BFL & 25% Nylon, popularly referred to as sock yarn  :-)
With only 2 bases it didn’t really occur to me to give them names… and to be honest, I find naming my colours difficult enough!

However, as I have been adding bases I have realised I can’t dodge that specific bullet any more and have spent a significant amount of time trying to come up with suitable names for my bases.  I had many ideas of what to base the names on (such as rivers, the Arthurian legend…) but finally settled on giving them ‘descriptive’ or ‘intuitive’ names.

Anyway, without further ado, please let me introduce the new names:

LACE:

CHARISMA - Lace
55% Superwashed BFL / 45% Silk, 800m per 100gr
WHISPER
80% Superwashed BFL / 20% Silk, 800m per 100gr

4ply / Fingering:

CHARISMA
55% Superwashed BFL / 45% Silk, 400m per 100gr
SPARTAN
100% Superwashed BFL, 400m per 100gr
STRIDE
75% Superwashed BFL / 25% Nylon, 425m per 100gr

5ply / SPORT:

SPARTAN - Sport
100% Superwashed BFL, 262m per 100gr
PLUSH
60% BFL / 20% Silk / 20 Nylon, 260m per 100gr


I hope you like them and that you find them intuitive.

Over the next few weeks I will be updating both my website’s shop and my Etsy shop.
As this will take a little bit of time you might find that if you place an order during these weeks you might be getting mix of old and new labels on the skeins.

Happy Knitting
