Happy Preview Day!!

We’ve got a gorgeously plump update for you this week, with another of our most popular bases in mini skein form, Jeannie Sock. This will combine beautifully with all the other high twist sock yarns that we do, so feel free to mix and match. The minis will soon have their very own page on the website (where we will also have specials, and exclusives, and one offs, and surprises), but for now they are on the shop page, and I’ve rolled over the few that were left from last week (Elinor & Esme). There’s so much exciting colourwork potential there!

And as if that wasn’t enough, we’ve got a really gorgeous new sports weight yarn for you this week, Evelyn Sport. This is so wonderful, and will work beautifully for sweaters, for shawls, for so many projects. Here are the details:

Evelyn Sport

A sports weight yarn, made from 80% superfine alpaca / 20% silk (not superwash). 286 yards (262m) per 100g. Recommended needle size is 3.5mm (US 4). £16.80 (including VAT), £14.00 (excluding VAT) per 100g skein.

And here’s some colourwork inspiration for you!


From November 1st 2021, all our yarn bases will go up by £1. So a £12 skein will be £13, a £14.75 will be £15.75, and so on.

You know how much I hate increasing prices, but we haven’t done so for 3 years, and meantime all the costs have gone up, so it’s unavoidable, I’m afraid. I think our prices are still very good though, and I hope you’ll agree!
