About Dee

I run the hand dyed yarn company Posh Yarn, with my husband Tony. We live in a little beach house on the tip of West Wales, with our two cats and about a million books.

This week’s shop preview is up!! There’s some gorgeous autumnal shades, and we’ve started including DK weight again (although I must apologise for the small dye lots, Tony did them before I had the chance to tell him to do them in larger amounts).

Surprise!! I’ve got an early preview for you this week, because it’s Bank Holiday weekend, and we are having a Grand Summer Sale! There’s lots of gorgeous bargains to be had, and lots of orphans needing new homes too. The preview is now up, so go take a look. And sharpen those elbows, it’s going to be fast & furious!

For those of you that are new to 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 30%! 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!
