This week’s shop preview is now up – there’s no photos, since this is a lucky dip style Orphans Update.

For those of you unfamiliar with Orphan Updates, here’s how it works.

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.

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.

Now, don’t forget!!! Daylight saving starts on Sunday at midnight, so we will be on at 7pm GMT+1. Use the countdown clock at the top of the page if you are unsure what time the update is in your time zone.


Well, I don’t know about you guys, but the Spring is beginning to creep into West Wales, and I’m excited. There’s snowdrops, daffodils, and even some early primroses out, and the daylight is beginning to draw out. We’ve survived another winter! To celebrate, we’ve got a particularly juicy big update for you, full of really punchy happy colours. And that’s not all! Here’s a 15% discount code, for this update:


Now then, I’m going to be a little stricter this time with the discount. You will need to enter that code as you complete checkout – if you forget, or if you only discover there was a code after you’ve checked out, I’m sorry, but you’ve missed out. I won’t be refunding or applying the code to invoices after the fact.

Happy shopping!! The preview is now up.
