21.10.14

We’ve got an especially early preview for you this week! Because it’s a double update: Saturday & Sunday!

Saturday October 25th, 7pm, is Sweater Packs.
Sunday October 26th, 7pm, is leftovers from sweater packs, and orphans.

If you are unfamiliar with how our Sweater Pack updates work, here’s what you need to know.

When you buy a sweater pack, you reserve the entire number of skeins in that pack. The minimum you can have from a pack is 5 skeins. Although most of the packs have 10 skeins in them, some may have less (8 or 9 skeins). You’ll see a note next to each item, telling you the number of skeins that are available in that pack. Please note, the pack is listed as one item in the stock levels, so you don’t need to change the amount to the number of skeins you want – just click add to basket to secure the whole pack. If you try to add more than one, it will tell you that you can’t!

If you want all of those skeins, you can go ahead and pay for them straight away. If you only want a certain number of skeins, you will need to email me with the number of skeins you require (as long as you complete Checkout, you have secured the yarn, whether you pay or not). I will then send you a Paypal invoice for the correct amount.

Postage will be the same as usual, £2.75 for UK customers, £3.75 for European customers (whether you are in the EU or not), and £5.25 for international customers.

On Sunday night at 7pm we will hold a second update, listing the remainders from the sweater packs (sold as usual, by the individual skein). There will be a preview for this update sometime on Sunday. This update will also include orphans, lots and lots of orphans!!

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Orphan Updates, here’s what you need to know:

There aren’t any photos or colour descriptions with orphans, as we sell them lucky dip style, but you will know what type of yarn you are buying (ie Sylvia Sock) and each skein is reduced in price, by 10%. There is usually only one skein per colourway, so if you buy more than one skein in a yarn base, you will probably not get matching skeins, but we do occasionally have twin orphans, so you may get a matching pair.

Many of the skeins have been overdyed (which means, double dyed), so they will be either dark or very saturated, with the complexity and depth that you get from overdyed yarn. There are also some lighter skeins that ended up as orphans for one reason or another. Orphans are not faulty or seconds, that is not the reason they are reduced in price, but because there are no photos.

The preview is now up – hope you like it!
