Peace Fleece

These beautiful swatch cards of Peace Fleece yarn arrived in the post box yesterday…

I’m going to ask Wayne to pick out a colour from the Peace Fleece swatches for a Christmas jumper or cardigan.

I bought 2 skeins of grey Peace Fleece from Brooklyn General Store last year for my dad’s socks, appropriately named “Father’s Grey”. Wonderful and full of character, from a distance the colour looks charcoal but close up you can see the different shadings and tiny flecks of white and brown and green. It comes in 200 yard skeins so I have quite a bit left over and I’m thinking of combining it with my single skein of Brooklyn Tweed Shelter in a Jane Ellison scarf pattern. The Shelter is almost the same colour, a charcoal grey called “Soot”.

Speaking of “Soot” that’s also the colour name of the Rowan Felted Tweed Aran which also arrived in the post yesterday. I really just wanted to try it out so bought just 2 skeins which are destined to become fingerless mitts for early morning bike rides to work.

And finally, the four vintage wooden buttons I bought on Etsy to finish off my button collar pullover have arrived with 2 extras I wasn’t expecting. As I now have 6 beautiful weathered wooden buttons, I might save them for a Christmas cardigan.

  1. Ooh, I’ve been dreaming of trying this lovely yarn for ages… I’d love to have a peek at the cards! I love shade cards ; )


  2. Jules, consider it done! I’ll bring in the shade yard when I come in with my Japan scarf. Speaking of which, if you love shade cards you should write away for the set from Pierrot yarns in Japan, it’s the most astonishing thing I’ve ever seen!
