This week’s shop preview is up! We’re on Sock Week, with a fabulous selection of bright zingy colourways for you. And we’re introducing a gorgeous new base:

Ophelia Sock

A sock weight yarn, made from 60% superwash merino, 20% silk, 20% yak. 400 yards (365m) per 100g. Recommended needle size is 3mm (US 3). £13.00 (excluding VAT), £15.60 (including VAT) per 100g skein.

Ophelia is extremely soft and luxurious, a little more robust than Natasha or Audrey, but almost as soft. Naturally the yarn is a soft oatmealy grey (we’ve held some skeins back from being dyed, because it’s such a nice colour that I think you’ll like it bare and naked). It has a nice crisp twist to it, and will give great stitch definition.

I also want to tell you a little more about Kirsten Sock, because she’s relatively new too. This base is a light sock weight yarn, made from pure superwash merino, with a soft twist. It has 492 yards (450m) per 100g. Unlike most of our sock yarns, this one is a 3ply, which gives it a plump soft appearance. It feels woolly, but very soft. If you haven’t tried it yet, I think you’ll love it!

This week’s shop preview is now up! But before you dash off to look at it, there are some important notes that I need to tell you:

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

There are no photos or colour descriptions with orphans. 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. There are a few twins though, so you might.

Many of the skeins have been overdyed, so they are either dark or very saturated. But on the plus side, the colourways have that complexity and depth that you get from overdyed yarn. There are also a few lighter skeins that ended up as orphans for one reason or another. I’m very sorry, but we aren’t able to take requests for colour preferences, or anything like that.

Also, our clocks go forward on Saturday night, so the update will be at 7pm GMT+1, not GMT. Make sure you check what time that it is in your region!

Finally, this update sees the last of our stock of the following bases, which won’t come back into stock until the autumn:

Antonia DK
Caitlin Aran
Florence Aran
Patricia Aran

Okay, that’s all the formalities over with, now let’s see the yarn!

24.03.14

Next week’s update is our very first Wildcard Week!! So, we wanted to make it a particularly exciting one. This month also marks eight years of Posh Yarn! Wow!!!! So, an epic update seems justified……

The 30.03.14 update will be our first ever grand scale Posh Blow-Out Sale!!!

We’re clearing out the stock room, and there is So! Much! Yarn! Mostly heavier bases, but also some lighter ones. And lots of orphans too. Prices on everything will be at least 20% reduced, and some more than that.

I suspect this might be the craziest update ever! But it’s going to be a LOT of fun, for us, and hopefully for you too. Start cracking open those piggy banks!!
