New Shiny Yarn

On Friday we drove over to Laxtons to pick up the latest yarn they’ve spun for us.

A couple of weeks ago I blogged about making the perfect sock yarn.

We picked up 30 odd kilos of yarn, saw the tops for the next custom spin (this one includes silk. It’s like a cloud. Only better.)

So Saturday so me at the workshop eager to get some of this yarn into dye.

712A3051

It’s fair to say that I’m completely smitten.

The gleam and luster on this yarn is incredible – and while it’s going to wear beautifully as a sock yarn I’m already thinking that it’s going to make very beautiful shawls.

The yarn is a blend of 75% superwash BFL and 25% mohair. Both fibers come from UK flocks and are processed and spun In Yorkshire.

We’ll be adding this yarn to the shop on Thursday 8th February – make sure you don’t miss out on updates by signing up for our newsletter.
