Following from Part Three, here is a picture of our Elegance range, launched this year, in natural colours in DK and 4-ply, and occupying a neat place between the work-a-day Blacker Classic and luxury Blacker Swan ranges.  Part Four describes the Blacker Yarns development process in more detail.

Felix asked for some thoughts and comments on woollen and worsted spun yarns (apparently, woollen is the US way and woolen the English way of spelling the former of these - you live and learn when translating stuff into French!).  So here they are, as well as being on Wovember http://wovember.com/2013/11/15/sue-blacker-on-woollen-vs-worsted-mill-spinning/.  You will also find an amazing amount of other really interesting and inspiring things on the Wovember site, which gets additions every day this

Something to cheer you/me up on a beastly weather day
