Shop Update 29.05.15

This week we’re introducing the fifth of our 2015 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.

The tribe which inspired the May yarn is the Rabari Tribe.

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

The May yarn is called Warrior and is available as both a self striping and variegated sock yarn.

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.

Then onto sock yarns – and this week it’s all about lots of colour

    This week’s selection looks lovely, specially the parrot and the bee eater, but where did you find a pigeon that colour??
