Sunday’s update is a gloriously huge sale, with orphans and bargains galore. It’s a Bank Holiday weekend here in Britain, and set to be one of the coldest and wettest, in history, but a little bargain hunting does wonders for the morale, don’t you agree?! And we sure do have some amazing yarn on sale. The orphans are reduced by 20%. And the rest of the sale yarn is reduced by 30%!!

If you are new to orphan updates, here is what you need to know about them:

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). 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.

The preview is now live for you to feast your eyes on. The cover shot is Caroline Sock, Moons & Junes & Ferris Wheels.


Happy Sunday, darlings! Tonight’s shop update opens in just under 45 minutes time….. (I accidentally typed 45 minuets: you’ve no idea how much I wanted to leave it like that!!)
