This week’s preview is now up! As you can see, Tony has gone colour crazy!!! We’ve got two fabulous new bases for you this week: Lorelei Sock, and Tabitha Sock.

Lorelei is the slinky new silk/seacell blend, very sinuous and silky, with soft little slubs. Tabitha is kid mohair/silk/nylon, lustrous, and kitten soft. You’re going to love them!

This week’s shop preview is up! We’re on Sweater Week, so the shop is full of yarns that will be perfect for larger projects, like cardigans and sweaters, from sock weight to aran weight. Tony has dyed some gorgeously bright colourways, and we’ve stayed mainly in the semi solid realm, with some subtle tonal variegated as well. I think you’re going to love this one!

I’m delighted to announce some new bases, which we will be rolling out over the next few weeks.

Valerie Heavy Lace

A heavy lace weight yarn, made from 70% merino, 20% silk, 10% cashmere. 650 yards (600m) per 100g. £16.50 (including VAT), £13.75 (excluding VAT) per 100g skein.

10.04.14

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!
