Shop Update 21.08.15

This week we’re introducing the eighth 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 is Tribes.

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

The tribe which inspired the July yarn is the Asaro Tribe.

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

The August yarn is called Asaro 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.

Next up is a restock of semi solid sock yarns
