So this past Saturday there were 2 Yarny events, one in Coimbra and one in Porto. Seeing as I couldn’t go to both, I opted to go to the one in Porto, it being closer to home and all. It was well worth it, the company alone is always worth a visit to Ovelha Negra, but this time there was something special, because it was the “presentation” of Ovelha’s own yarn line/brand called Victoria.
Victoria is available in two “weights” of yarn, a fingering (the top half of the cabinet) and a lace (the bottom half of the cabinet) in an array of colours as you can clearly see. Shall we take a closer look…
The fingering weight – 50g/200m/220yds in 22 colours
How about an even closer look, shall we….
The lace weight – 50g/350m/385yds in 17 colours
and a closer look…
As you can see from the pictures, the colours are gorgeous and it was extremely hard to walk out of the shop without any of these cute little “cakes”. This is 100% Portuguese yarn, so it’s a bit “rustic”, not the uber soft merino type yarns, but to tell you the truth I don’t particularly mind much, I loved the touch, especially having handled some finished items.
