Before I tell you what’s in this week’s shop update I’m going to tell you about something you can’t buy.
Sparkly mini skeins in our custom spun BFL, Masham and lurex base.
We’ll be launching this yarn on the 31st of August, so if you’d like to get your hands on this mini skein set before then you can try to win it.
Every purchase made from the shop from 1900 this evening until 1800 on Thursday 17th August will give you an entry into the draw to win this special set of mini skeins.
So – a little more about the yarn. The base yarn is a 4ply or fingering weight with 400m to each 100g skein. Mini skein sets have 480m and 120g in total. The blend is 70% BFL, 23% Masham and 7% lurex. Both wools are sourced from UK flocks and have been processed in Bradford before being spun for us by Laxtons.
This isn’t a sock yarn. It’s softly spun to highlight the luxurious feel of the wool. So not socks – but everything else.
The mini skein set would work wonderfully for any of the patterns in Knit The Rainbow.
So on to the actual update.
We have lots of 4ply BFL and nylon sock yarn ready for the update at 1900.
There are 4 new colours.
There will also be a restock of semi solid shades.
The shop update takes place at 1900 this evening, so until then you won’t be able to see the yarns shown above.
