This colourful cushion is knitted using slip stitch and ridges to create a lovely tweedy effect. The cushion’s stripes use three natural colours of Blacker Yarns, British breeds aran - Galway, Black Welsh Mountain and Shetland. We think this cushion is a wonderful showcase for the yarn. The different textures of the flbres make this a gloriously tactile item.
