March 2024 Shop Update March 22 2024, 0 Comments

Its been a busy few weeks since the last shop update with another lovely show, this time in East Anglia. Thank you to everyone who came to see the stand. As we are now in show season this month's shop update is mostly repeatable colourways on different bases. We have Sodbury Yarn Over next month and Buxton in May to look forward to.

Outside the studio both my kids have had exams recently, with year 8 exams for my daughter in which she did amazingly well and the last lot of GCSE mocks for my son. He also had his actual food tech practical exam on Monday, hopefully that went well. Its all getting very real now that his exams are getting close! It really doesn't seem that long ago he was starting secondary school.

I have a meeting this afternoon so all the yarn is on line already! This email might even go out a little earlier than usual too. Check out the preview page to see what will be coming this evening or read on for more information. This month there is Crush, Crush DK, Selkino, Enchant, Enchant DK, Floof and Lustrous.


Non Repeatable Colourways



This is a beautifully smooth and shiny blend of merino and silk. Great for summer projects as the high silk content can make it feel cooler to the touch. We dye all our Lustrous as one off colourways so do grab it while you can as the next batch will be totally different! These are called Turquoise Vein, Papyrus, Storm Brewing, Ballet Slippers and Lemon Drop.


The Broads

This was our show special colourway for EAYF and there are a few skeins left on Crush and Crush DK. Inspired by The Broads national park it pairs soft green and blue with brightly coloured speckles.





Maltings Sock Pattern and Crush 50g

 I have added printed copies of my Maltings Sock pattern to the website. If you prefer a digital copy please head over to PayHip still for now. I'm still working on putting digital downloads on Shopify. If you buy 2 x 50g Skeins of Crush you can add the pattern to your cart for half price. I'm hoping this is a more flexible way of offering sock kits but do let me know if you have any problems!





Shawl Kits

We have finally managed to get more of our popular kits on line after repeatedly selling out at shows. If you would like to have a bespoke kits put together in another colour do get in touch. I'm very happy to help






Repeatable Colourways



Our every popular sock yarn that can be used for so much more! We have dyed up lots of colours so we have plenty in stock for those 'Must cast on now' projects.


A little top up of our most popular colours on Selkino. Don't forget we can dye any of our repeatable colours for you if we don't have them in stock.






This has been the most popular base so far this year, with one customer at the last show describing it as feeling like 'Buttered Kittens'. Please don't go buttering any kittens to find out if this is accurate, as its sounds messy, but this is the softest yarn. If you want any colourways not currently dyed up do order soon as I'm going to be taking it off dye to order for a little while at the end of the month so we can concentrate on other things for a while.


Enchant DK

The same base as Enchant but slightly thicker. Great for quick, luxurious projects such as this small shawl I knitted for last months Free Pattern Friday Review in Limpet.






This fluffy mohair and silk yarn is great for using alone for super lightweight shawls or held together with another yarn for an interesting texture. It also makes really warm and cosy garments.

Crush DK

If you missed out on the Mellow Fruitfulness at Unravel we have some more! There are also other popular colourways such as Kingfisher, Enchanted Forest and Mountain Heather for you to choose from.
