This week’s shop preview is now up, and I’m delighted to add another British yarn base to our range!

Fenella Sock

Limited Edition. A sock weight yarn, made from 75% British merino, 25% cashmere. 390 yards (355m) per 100g. £21.60 (inc VAT), £18.00 (exc VAT).

This yarn is quite loosely spun and plied, to give it maximum smoosh, and it is dyeing up in a marled style, which will look fabulous when knitted up. I can’t wait to show you! I know this is one of our pricier yarns, but that’s cashmere for you. I’ve got it on a trial basis, pending your feedback, but I’m sure you’ll want it to stick around once you get your hands on it. It’s very very soft and velvety.

We’ve got a very special – and fun – update for you this week! It’s our very first Mid Season Sale. Rather than overdyeing the leftovers each week (because really, some of those colourways are so beautiful it would be criminal to overdye them!), I’ve been saving them up, and twice a year they will go on sale, with prices reduced by 25%. Added to these are lots of Orphans.

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!

Get out your diary – we’ve got a very special update for you this week!!!! Introducing our new, very limited edition, base, Gina Lace.

Gina Lace

A lace weight yarn, made from 75% kid mohair, 25% silk. 918 yards (840m) per 100g. £14.40 (including VAT), £12.00 (excluding VAT) per 100g skein.

When I say Limited Edition, I only have 50kg of this base, and once that’s gone, it’s gone for good. So, this will appear over the next few updates.

Also in this update is the absolute last stock of Valerie Heavy Lace – again, once this is gone, it’s gone for good. We saved up the last 15kg for this update, so there’s lots for everyone, and a good range of colourway types. I’m very sad to see this base go, it’s one of my favourites. If you haven’t already tried it, this is your last chance!!!

The preview is now up, and as usual, the shop opens at 7pm on Sunday. See you then!

This week’s shop preview is live! We’re on Lace Week, with a fabulous selection of punchy summer colours for you. Word to the wise, this week sees us coming to the end of our stock of Bridget Lace (we may get more at some point, but I’m not sure when), and very nearly the end of Valerie Heavy Lace (alas, this one will be gone for good). Stock up before it’s too late!
