This week it’s all about our hard working BFL nylon. I love this stuff. It’s processed and spun in Yorkshire. It uses British BFL. The yarn is superwash treated so it won’t felt (something that can be really useful if you’re planning a gift and aren’t 100% sure how the recipient will feel about hand washing). The nylon helps made a hardwearing yarn. Yup – I love this stuff.
This week we’ve got lots of new colours, and you’ll find them all in the shop now. Just click the link below each photo and you’ll end up in the right place.
It’s been back to work for me this week, and I’ve been dyeing the September clubs. Once those are packed up it’s time to start dyeing for Yarndale.
This week there’s something a little different. We often get asked if we’ll print our designs on t-shirts, and until now we’ve been reluctant to do that as weren’t able to find t-shirts which were organic cotton, ethically made and available in the range of sizes we wanted to offer.
After lots of searching we found a brand called EarthPositive and bought some samples. I’ve been wearing these for the last few weeks and they’ve been through the washing machine several times. They still look like new. So we’ve ordered t-shirts and the first batch were printed this week.
One thing we’ve found is that as t-shirts get bigger across the chest they also get longer. That’s not true for people. So if you’d like your t-shirt to be shorter we can take care of that for you at no extra cost.
I’ve found the t-shirts a perfect length for wearing over jeans and I’m 5’7″ – but if I wanted a t-shirt to tuck in I’d want to take away some length.
The t-shirts are £18 each (or £15 if you don’t live in the UK or EU). We can post a t-shirt for £1.50 in the UK.
You’ll find the t-shirts in the shop now, and clicking on the photos will take you straight to the right place. It’s back to yarn next week and a very much needed restock of the BFL nylon sock yarn.
The SALE20 code will be valid from 1800 UK time on Friday 28th June to 1800 on Saturday 29th June, and we’ll do our best to get everything packed over the weekend so it can be posted on Monday.
We’re also running a sale on digital patterns and you can take advantage of that right now.
The initial Stonewall Riots started on the 28th of June 1969. So to celebrate my 50th birthday we’re taking 50% off the price of all of our digital patterns, and we’ll be donating 50% of the purchase price to Stonewall.
