WELCOME TO ISSUE 10 OF

Olann and

The theme for the designs in this issue is rainbow bright. As we come into autumn we’re looking at some garments that can chase away the chill, but still give you that bright feeling of fading summer. As usual, we’ve also got book reviews, podcast suggestions and we take a look at yarns from new-to-us indie dyers. We also hear about a wonderful sheep-to-garment project in the Northwest of Ireland, and we welcome a new column from alpaca farmers Roger and Elaine Clarke.
