This week we’re introducing the fourth of our charity yarns. Bobbie and I wanted a theme for these which would run throughout 2015, and it’s fair to say that Bobbie has found an amazing source of inspiration for this.
The theme for the 2015 charity yarns will be Tribes.
The images which inspire this yarn come from a blog which details the travel adventures of Jimmy Nelson.
This is Bobbie’s watercolour to tell me what colours I needed to get from the dye pots.

We’ll be donating 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these yarns to the three charities chosen by the Knitting Goddesses (and Gods). These are the Alzheimer’s Society, the Stoke Association and Mind.
Each of these colourways is limited, and once they’ve sold there won’t be any more of these colours.
Next up is a brand new yarn for us – a 100% silk cobweb weight yarn. We’re selling these in 10 gram skeins – and each 10 grams has 300 meters of yarn. Each skein will cost £4.00, so it’s a great way to get the right amount of yarn for your project.
Being silk, the colours glow – it’s been such a pleasure winding these into little skeins.

If you’d like to see our yarns in person Rachel Coopey will have some sock yarn and mini skein sets on her stall at Wonderwool Wales this weekend. You’ll find her on stand b4 which is just on left of the main door in hall 1.
Happy shopping. What will you make?
