Adam Curtis Online are proud to launch their first own-brand yarn range in a colourful selection of contemporary summer shades.
Through my career in the wool industry, I have developed a wide variety of yarns and each one has qualities that I try keep unique to that range. Recently, I decided to do my own yarn range in memory of my late son and so I sought the assistance of my wife and parents to help add those extra special touches.
Affectionately named The Coconut Collection, the range is made up of four light-worsted/DK yarns made in the UK from British Wool.
So why The Coconut Collection? My son arrived into this world prematurely and while he survived his initial journey, unfortunate circumstances saw him leave us after a heart wrenching 38 hours.
We decided to name our baby boy Coconut, as this was his nickname during my wife’s pregnancy and the first name he responded to when I met him in hospital. The timing of our pregnancy would suggest that our boy was conceived on our honeymoon in Hawaii.
The stunning Hawaiian beaches were the main inspiration behind our shade selection for which we chose a few ourselves before asking for suggestions from a number of our wonderful Twitter followers. From a brilliant shortlist, we put together the collection.
- 2/4.7Nm count, 110m/50g ball
- Spun and dyed in Yorkshire, using 100% British Wool
- Available as individual 50g balls or packs of 10 from the ACO website (here)
Several kits and patterns will be released in the near future so if you would like to be the first to hear of these, please sign up to our newsletter (here). Alternatively, ACO has signed up to Ravelry so please feel free to say hello to us on there.
We are very excited to be attending Fibre East in Bedfordshire, our first fibre and craft show, where we will be exhibiting The Coconut Collection for the first time. Please feel free to come and meet us in person where we will have our new yarn and other goodies from our online shop on offer.
