There’s something really special in the shop update this week.
Sparkly yarn. Wool from Uk flocks with added sparkles. A truly gorgeous DK.
Custom spun for us in Yorkshire this very special yarn is
72% Bluefaced Leicester, 24% Masham, 4% Metallic lurex
Each skein is 100g / 235m and costs £18.00
We had this spun as a sample batch so there’s a very limited amount of it. However it’s fair to say we’ve fallen in love and we’ll be commissioning a larger run when we get back from Edinburgh Yarn Festival.
The yarn will be in the shop at 1900 this evening.
It feels like a week for bright sock yarn.

March club parcels are on their way.
Clubs for the UK were posted first thing this morning.
European clubs left on the 25th of February, and clubs with furthest to go left on the 23rd of February.
If your club package includes a pattern this will be emailed to you on the 1st of March.
I’ve been playing with mini skein sets, and there will be a new design collection very soon.
I promised I’d let you know when Anna Elliott released the pattern for To The Lighthouse.
I test knit this using 4ply Wensleydale and Shetland – and it’s a gorgeous pattern.
I’ll have my cardigan at Edinburgh Yarn Festival (along with several yarn options) – but I won’t have printed patterns.
More details and how to buy? Here you go.
There’s no new yarn in the shop this week – instead we’ll be adding to the sale shop at 1900. All yarns in the shop will have 20% off their original price, so it’s a great chance to grab a bargain.
You won’t be able to see the sale shop until just before 1900 – so make sure you check back then.
We’re getting ready to launch new zip pouches at Edinburgh Yarn Festival – and we wanted them to have special zip pulls.
