20th Anniversary Special – Knit by Numbers Dark 4ply

£17.50 per 100g Skein

Many many moons ago, when we were deciding which two new shades to add to our KBN colour palette, some wise soul suggested that we add black (instead of our usual white) to the base colours and create some KBN darks. We were utterly smitten with this idea – and here are the results of our experimenting. Those deep saturated tones are mysterious and moody and we love them!

For any of you who might want the bright solid shade of KBN too, we have added these skeins to this page. If you want to pick up any of the rest of the KBN 4ply shades then you will find the 100g skeins here and the mini skein gradient packs here.

These 4ply skeins are 400m per 100g

These specials are a part of our 20th Anniversary celebrations. Hurrah!

Knit by Numbers is an exciting range of 100% organically farmed Falklands Merino in double knit and 4ply (in both 100g skeins and 25g minis) across 121 shades. The innovative colour palette aims to provide the precise shade required. Each colour range is available in 6 shades – going from dark to light, and each colour is given a unique number reference, rather than a name, hence the range being called Knit By Numbers.

Knit By Numbers is a unique colour palette of over 100 different shades created by blending pre-dyed fibre top colours with specific varying percentages of white.  Each colour is available in 6 tonal shades – from dark to light.  The yarn comes in both 4ply and DK (100g skeins and 25g minis) and is also available in a complimentary limited colour selection available as Tops.
