Shop Update 19.11.15

The shop update will take place at 1900 on Thursday 19th November, as we’re heading off for a long weekend off on Friday.

So before then I need to sort our something which is suitable travel knitting.

This week’s update is all about project bags. Very special project bags which happened by accident. While I was in one of my favourite fabric shops looking for cheap cotton to take to screen printing class at college I found the most gorgeous 100% wool felt. There wasn’t a huge amount of it – the shop specialises in mill ends so often there’s very little length. Let’s just say that there was a lot less by the time I’d finished. We will gloss over the fact that I was so excited by the purchasing of meters and meters of felt that I managed to leave without the cotton that I’d come to buy.

Our felt bags are made from sturdy 100% wool felt so they’ll stand up to lots of use. Each bag is interfaced and lined with a heavy cotton canvas, and there are no raw seams on the inside.

There’s even a screen print on the lining.

Felt bags have a wider base and sweep out to the zip at the top.

As each bag is hand made measurements will differ slightly.

Measurements are

length along the zip 32cm

length along the base 25cm

height 20cm

width at base 8cm

Small enough to be easily carried, these bags have plenty of space for 3 or 4 skeins of yarn plus knitting pins, making them suitable for most projects.

Each bag is made from fabric which has been screen printed with one of our unique designs. Our screen prints are made with soil association approved water based ink, and are heat set to ensure durability. To keep your bag looking good for as long as possible we’d recommend spot cleaning.  If necessary bags can also be handwashed gently in cool water.

Each bag costs £25.

There are two designs – stocking stitch and garter stitch.
