"Big, Bold, Abundant Flowers"

Floribunda is a beautiful, double knit (completely reversible) blanket, designed by Lucy Neatby and "inspired by big bold abundant flowers". We share Lucy's love of bright colours and admire the way she uses it in her home, on her person and in her designs. When Lucy talked to us about her blanket design thoughts using River City Yarns Eden, we agreed that the colour palette would be fabulous for this project. Eden is dyed exclusively for River City Yarns by another colourful, East Coast, Canadian company: Hand Maiden in Nova Scotia.

Lucy used 15 skeins in 7 colours of luxurious, hand painted River City Yarns Eden. Eden is a blend of 81% superwash Merino, 9% cashmere and 10% nylon. The yarn kit price is $585 CAN. The pattern is available for purchase at Little Barn Studio. The pattern includes 15 video links to give you full technical support as you work!

Each Floribunda Yarn kit contains 15 skeins in 7 shades of River City Yarns Eden:

  • Amaranthine (2 skeins),
  • Deep Turquoise (2 skeins),
  • Green Apple (1 skein),
  • Jewel (2 skeins),
  • Magenta (3 skeins),
  • Silver (4 skeins) and
  • Wood Lily (1 skein)

You will also need:

  • Lucy Neatby's Floribunda DK Blanket pattern. The pattern will list all the other requirements, e.g. needles and will include helpful links to video resources as well as instructions on swatching to determine the needle size that will work for you.

Other options:

If you'd like to buy individual skeins and spread out the purchases over time, you can do that too. Copy the list above and order individual skeins here: https://rivercityyarns.com/products/rcyeden
The good news is that you don't have to worry about differences in tone/hue due to different dye lots purchased. Because of the way that this blanket is knit, variations in the hand-dyed yarn will add even more interest to your finished project. Buy some now and do a top up later.

Note about yarns from our website: Photographs aren't perfect; they don't capture the texture and feel of the yarn. Colours viewed on different monitors may have shade and tone differences from the actual product.
