Love, love me do…
I decided to be a little brave and have a go at trying a new yarn. I loved the colour pallet of the Paintbox yarns. Vibrant, young bold and modern? I’ve bought a small rainbow of selected colours and will be trying them out over the next few purses. I loved the red as soon as I saw it. A much deeper than and I think I prefer this shade to the more yellow version I already have.
The colours are bolder but I find the ‘Feel’ a lot different, even though they’re both cotton. My usual Sirdar cotton has a shiny glow to it (which probably adds to its softness whilst working with it) whereas the Paintbox yarn seems to absorb the colour, but not drain it. A little tougher on the fingers to work with, but quite an acceptable sacrifice if you’re after a larger pallet of colours. There is no difference however between finished products.
