Yarn Shade Cards

While many of the yarns used by Alice Starmore in her very popular pattern books have been discontinued, knitter's can still make use of their pattern books and knit many of these designs by substituting Jamieson's Heather Aran and Spindrift 2-ply for the Scottish Heather and Scottish Campion yarns originally specified in these patterns. Substitution information for both of these Alice Starmore yarns are provided below.

(Note that if you are shopping in person at our store, we have an Alice Starmore shade card available to help you
match the colours. We also have the Jamieson's Shade Cards, pictured above, available for ordering.)
