My Lola Story

In the last post I shared a project that I'm currently working on, and the yarn I'm using is a Lola from Garnmanufaktur.

What makes it special, is that I chose the colours - and the 'Emma' Lola is available to order at Yarnish! (At the time of this post, they are currently sold out, but will be re stocked)

Today I'd like to share the inspiration of my colours.

My palette is based on Eucalyptus leaves.

The deep wine red might be a surprising choice, but if you look closely you'll see the colour of the new shoots and leaves.

I like to think I have two colour themes - bright yellows and pinks, or these Aussie bush colours (There might be another blog post dedicated to my 'bright' palette)

Last Christmas I made a table runner - as part of the Yarnish Advent MCAL - and had the same colour inspo.

The wildflower necklace kit is also based on the same theme! With other native flower variations available.  

I'm very excited to have my own yarn colourway, and equally excited to share it with you! If you do grab an 'Emma Lola' please share a picture with what you make! You can Tag #ewdmakes, #yarnishandco or #yarnishmakes and I'll see it on Instagram, or send via a direct message!

As my shawl progresses, I'll be sharing more pictures here.

Thanks for Reading, and Happy Crocheting,



  1. Hi Emma,
    I love Australian native flowers and colours and thus love your bush palette also. How cool that you got to choose it for your own yarn design. The deep wine red is not surprising to anyone familiar with Aussie flowers - I find them so complex with lots of colours. (That is why our brightly coloured rosellas and lorikeets blend in so well with our native vegetation.) In any case deep wine red is a colour familiar to my local landscape of vineyards so the red works in more ways than one!
    Having your own yarn design is so exciting!
