Well, I’m glad the groundhog is on the same page as Tony: Spring is near!!!! Quite literally here in West Wales, there are snowdrops and daffodils everywhere. Looking at this week’s update, it’s not hard to see where Tony has drawn his inspiration. And he’s pushed the limits of colour, more than he’s ever done before. The preview for February Lace Week is now live!

This week’s preview is up! There are lots of bargains to be had, you won’t want to miss this update!
For those of you unfamiliar with Orphan Updates, here’s how they work.
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 (or very rarely, triplets!).
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.
Sale updates are fast and furious, so be prepared, and I hope you enjoy it as much as we do! I’ve also included some of the last of our Gina Lace, at a reduction of 50%. There are only five colourways left of this, after this week, so it’s running out fast!
