Our popular Polzeath Cardigan is worked in a combination of 4-ply Lyonesse wool-linen blended yarn and St. Kilda laceweight yarn.  The original for our photoshoot was worked in Onyx Lyonesse with the pale natural St. Kilda.  We saw a lovely version of Polzeath at Wonderwool, worked in Lyonesse Aquamarine with the pale natural shade of St. Kilda.  You can also make a really rich dark version using Onyx or Haematite Lyonesse, or possibly Serpentine, with the dark natural St. Kilda, or equally extend the contrast and use a warmer, softer peachy Tourmaline, or the Amethyst or Moonstone with the dark St. Kilda.

We have a lovely limited edition range of hand dyed St Kilda from The Knitting Goddess and the soft summery pastels in our updated Lyonesse shades, which tone wonderfully together!
