Of all the yarns we stock, one of our favourites (they're all our favourites!) is Finull PT2. It's 100% Norwegian Wool fingering weight in an range of more than 100 colours. It is great value and will make garments you can wear for years, mend, and hand-down. It is versatile - Wardie, Ravelston, Joy and Mīlēt are all made from Finull PT2.

At times we wished they had some more heathered, in between, colours as the range was mostly colours dyed on white yarn, which is great if you are trying to match Harry Potter houses or sports team colours, but makes Fair Isle style stranded colourwork a bit more challenging.

And then we got a shade card of the new colours and it was like the missing part of this pallette. We are very excited by these colours - they are a beautiful set of heathered shades and we are looking forward to using them. We think these really round out the Finull PT2 palette and you should expect lots of colour work suggestions from us inspired by these new colours. We've had fun taking pictures of the colours together and will be sharing some ideas of how they can be combined soon.

The heathers arrived in the studio on Thursday and after some quick yarn squeezing and photography, they are available in the store.

To make your colour choosing easier, Finull PT2 is divided into 3 products - Colours, Neutrals and these new Heathered shades. The Finull PT2 shade cards cover all of the range except the heathers - we'll be adding a heathered page as soon as Rauma can supply them!

Please contact Nuala (support@ysolda.com) if you want Harry Potter house or sports team colour suggestions in Finull PT2 or any other yarn we stock - finding colours is fun.
