Beautiful Katia Paint Cake

I discovered this fabulous yarn yesterday in Sussex Crafts, a fab little yarn shop in Cuckfield, West Sussex.
All the years in Spain I knitted and crocheted with the Spanish made Katia yarns and this didn't exist.
I love Katia and was so surprised to find a stockist here.
Sussex Crafts has blossomed since the new owner took over and is a magical place to spend some time. It's impossible to leave without buying something because there are so many wonderful things shouting 'Take me home!'
This is the Gorgeous Katia Paint cake that I bought.
 There are several colour mixes to choose from.
The yarn is 80% Acrylic and 20% wool but feels and looks like wool. There is enough yarn in the 150gm cake to make a shawl or scarf but I won't be using it yet a while, I just want it on my desk to look at!
