Yarn Review on the Knit British Podcast

I’m a real fan of podcasts. They’re something that I enjoy while I’m in the workshop or melting glass. Some of what I listen to is business related, some is because the subject matter is fascinating, and some is just fun.

One of my favourites is the Knit British podcast hosted by Louise Scollay.

Recently we sent some of our gorgeous polwarth, alpaca and zwartables to Louise so she could review it, and you can hear her opinions in episode 35 – Kiss My British Wool!

It’s always lovely to listen to someone who really knows and understands their subject, so hearing Louise talk about the different sheep breeds and fibre qualities which make this yarn so special is a real treat.

There’s even the chance to win a skein of polwarth, alpaca and zwartables – so go and have a listen and find out how to be in with a chance of owning a skein of this fantatsic yarn.

If you’d like to buy this yarn there’s some in the shop now – and 10 new colours will be joining it when the shop update takes place at 1900 this Friday.

My thanks to Louise for providing such a detailed review – and for keeping me company in the workshop when I’m winding yarn.

    I had to google Zwartbles because I had never heard the word before, let alone had a clue to what it might be! Now I know that it’s a breed of sheep and I’ve dipped my toe into the previously unexplored world of podcasts too – it’s been a revelation, thank you! xx
