To celebrate the release of Terry Pratchett’s last Discworld novel on 27th of August I wanted to dye up something rather special.
Something that a brilliant and slightly twisted mind would approve of.
So I decided it would be fun to revisit the 12 colours which formed the Granny Weatherwax sock club and turn them into self striping yarns.
The yarns will be available in both the British wool and nylon and Britsock bases.
These yarns will go on sale to subscribers on the 27th of August and any that are left will be added to the shop update of 28th August. You can sign up for the newsletter here.
On to the yarns – the first 6 photos are of British wool and nylon base and the last 6 are of Britsock.
