Yarn availability update June 30 2020
Many of our yarns come from the lovely people at Chester Wool, who source it from mills in Peru where, due to the pandemic, they were shut for 10 weeks. They have now been open again for 4 weeks, but at reduced capacity, so as you can imagine this has had an affect on stock levels for certain yarns. The main impact for us is on our Crush bases in 4ply and DK and on advent calendars. To ensure all orders can be fulfilled in a timely manor, while still offering as wide a range of choice as possible please note the following:
- There are two (2) Wriggle advent calendars left. Crush advent calendars are all sold out. It is unlikely more will be made available later in the year.
- August's sock club is currently still open for sign ups and will be on Crush as usual, but I may have to close it before the 15th August.
- All pre-orders placed up to today (30th June) I have the yarn in stock for.
- Pre-orders are currently unavailable for Crush and Crush DK. I hope to be able to reopen these at the end of July. If you have an urgent requirement do get in touch and we can discuss what base may work as an alternative. Wriggle and Selkino pre-orders are still available.
This is only temporary, Chester Wool have a comprehensive plan to ensure stocks of all yarns are returned to usual levels as quickly as possible. Don't worry about missing out on your favourite yarns as we have plans to bring you some exciting new yarns over the next few months to try.
