February Shop Update February 21 2023
Its been a busy month since the last newsletter and its actually only been 3 weeks! Shop update is a little earlier as we will be busy at Unravel next week which I'm really looking forward to. I do hope you can come too.
Outside of work my kids have both had exams recently, just school ones but its all good practise, and it looks like they went well.
My two designs for Unravel are just having final tweaks and will be available at the show and on line afterwards. We have also expanded our Dye to Order to include both Enchant and Enchant Dk and I've been updating the photos for all bases so do check those out and let me know what you think.
Quite a lot of new yarn this month, remember if you want to order and collect at Unravel use the code UnravelPickUp to take the postage off and make sure you don't miss out. We will be taking all the yarn to Unravel with us and most is unrepeatable colourways so if you aren't coming to the show it may not be available when we get back.
We are still uploading new yarn so keep checking the preview page, or read on to see what's coming.
We haven't had a restock of Cloudgazer for a while so this month there are a bumper new 11 colourways. All non-repeatable and some only have 1 or 2 skeins available. Cloudgazer is a lovely alternative to Floof with baby alpaca instead of mohair. The halo is slightly shorter and softer but can be used in the same way as Floof either alone on large needles for a very light and airy piece or combined with another yarn to add texture and interest (and warmth!)
Fingering Weight Yarns
This is the fingering weight version of our popular Desire Marble Dk. If you haven't tried this base yet its lovely and soft, 100% merino but spun with some parts of one ply using the natural black fibre to give an interesting effect. It doesn't work up stripy as the black is included randomly and works up nicely in both knit and crochet projects. Check out the Desire Marble page to see a knitted sample. All colourways are non-repeatable and some are single skeins.
A lustrous combination of silk and merino in equal balance resulting in a super soft sock weight yarn with a lovely drape ideal for shawls, scarves and garments. All non-repeatable colourways dyed in twos to fours per batch.
Squash is a 100% nylon free version of our popular sock yarn Crush. It has the same smooth, round structure and is 100% superwash merino. Perfect for socks, shawls, accessories and any other fingering weight project. These colourways are all non-repeatable so do check them out and see what we have been creating.
Dk Weight Yarns
Lots more Crush Dk in stock ready to go, or go to Unravel. We hope to have the biggest display of our repeatable colourways on lots of bases at Unravel. Do check it out in the Barley Room or look for photos on social media.
We will be at Farnham Maltings for the fabulous 3 day Unravel Festival next week. Check out their website for tickets and full details of the talks and other things going on. If you are coming and wish to pick up your order at the show please use the code UnravelPickUp to remove the postage cost.

Thank-you for reading this month's newsletter this month and sorry its slightly later going out, our mail provider has slightly changed the site so I had to start from scratch rather than use my previous template so it all took a little bit longer. Hopefully back to normal next month. Keep warm and enjoy your crafting and hope to see you at an event soon.
