Colinette Mill Shop buys, part one

Today we visited the Colinette millshop, part of the factory at Llanfair Caereinion in Powys. We'd been there once before, last September, so the Easter break seemed like an opportune time for another visit. Or as DH puts it, "to add to the wool mountain". This is said in a very accepting tone of voice - the wool is just a fact of life here now :-)

This time I only bought yarn from the sale room, which makes the pennies go further! To be honest there is so much choice in there you'd be hard put not to find something you liked.

First off, 3 skeins of Prism, a wool/cotton mix in shade "Monet":

Point 5 wool in a fab dark khaki mix (no idea what the shade name is, a lot of skeins in the sale room don't have labels):
