Shop Update 13.02.15

This week there’s a real feast of colour for you.

First up is the last of my current stock of our gorgeous Falkland merino laceweight – and it’s all about the greens. I’ll be ordering more of this yarn, but for the next 6 weeks or so there won’t be any more of it in the updates.

Then on to the charity colour for February.

The images which inspire this yarn come from a blog which details the travel adventures of Jimmy Nelson.

The tribe which inspired the February yarn is the Mustang Tribe.

This is Bobbie’s watercolour to tell me what colours I needed to get from the dye pots.

Finally for this week, there’s a restock of mini skein sets. These have been hugely popular as everyone rushes to cast on Otis Socks by Rachel Coopey. If you’d like a different colourway we have a few suggestions here.

    Gorgeous 🙂 I’m trying to work out if the Daffodil colourway has taken very differently between the various yarn types or if it’s differences in the photos. The Britsock variegated looks so much bolder than the Britsock self-striping or the wool & nylon; is that how it actually turned out?

  2. Hi Valerie – yes that’s how it turned out. The variegated daffodil was done in a different sye bath to the self striping yarns.
