There’s lots of new yarn in the shop this week and some of it is extra special.
The names for these colours come from my lovely friend Scully, and are inspired by her bother Adam who died very recently. Claire and her mum have asked that money raised from this yarn goes to Jeans for Genes Day.
Jeans for Genes Day is the annual fundraising campaign for Genetic Disorders UK, the national charity that supports individuals and families affected by a genetic disorder.
Monies raised on Jeans for Genes Day fund the work of the charity and provide grants to organisations for projects that aim to transform the lives of children with genetic disorders.
We’ll be donating 50% of the purchase price of these yarns to Genetic Disorders UK. The remaining 50% helps cover the yarn costs, VAT, tax and dye costs. In turn that means we can make more of these yarns available and hopefully raise more money for this charity.
If you’d like to donate to Jeans for Genes Day you can do so here.
The yarns and stitch markers shown are available in the shop now and clicking on each caption will take you straight to them.
We’ve restocked our glass stitch markers and there are some new variations.
We’ve restocked the mini skeins sets for the November shawl club, and we’ve added a couple of new colour options.
One last thing to tell you is that we’ve added a new payment option to the shop. Some people struggle with Paypal so there’s also an option to pay via Worldpay.
There’s freepost on orders over £50 in the UK and over £100 to everywhere else. This will be applied automatically so you no longer need to remember to select the freepost option.
