Shop Update 06.02.15

There’s a whole collection for gorgeous British wool this week.

First up is the reintroduction of our Take Five sets – but with a difference. This time round the sets contain 5 x 20g skeins of Britsock, and the colours shade from one skein to the next. We’ve looked at different ways of dyeing colour block yarns and decided that this works best for us. It’s less labour intensive so we can keep the prices lower. It means the yarn goes through fewer processes. Perhaps best of all it gives you choice over which colour you want to put where.

semi solid electric blue. I have to confess that I’ve stashed a skein of this, and I’m eyeing up the rest of it as a potential jumper.

Finally for Britsock lovers we have 5 new self striping colours. These will all knit up as bold stripes, which is about 7 rounds on a plain 64 stitch sock.

The same colours are also available in our British wool and nylon sock base. I love the different way that the two yarns take the dye.

The last thing in this week’s update is something rather different. I’ve been making beads which work with any of the European bracelet systems – and just in time for Valentine’s day there are some hearts, and some colourful sets.
