The third issue of the Knit & Stitch magazine included two balls of Eclair yarn from Bergere de France – colours Dionysos and Taffetas. Eclair yarn is pretty hard to work with, mainly because of the waves in the yarn. It’s 3% Lurex, 9% Combed wool, 14% Mohair and 74% Acrylic. The yarn has some metallic strands added to it that give the finished knitting a subtle mettalic shine to it.
Also as a bonus this issue included knitting needles in size 5mm.
Both yarns are for the throw’s patchwork square 1A and 1B. They’re knitted in garter stitch using 5mm knitting needles.
