The Year of the Sock……

So, 2006 is drawing to a close. Almost a year ago, it was declared the year of the sock, and how true that turned out to be. Our sock yarn sales are way ahead of all our other yarns, although lace weight is definitely gaining in popularity. The Sock Club was one of our outstanding successes this year, and I’m looking forward to lots of you joining us next year, because we have so much fun with the club.

As I’ve mentioned before, there will be a few changes to Posh Yarn for 2007. But rest assured, the only change for our sock yarn, is more, more, more. More quantity, more shades, more types. I love knitting socks, I love dyeing yarn for socks, and apparently, you love buying yarn for socks! We have a match made in heaven, don’t you think?

I’m using this week’s sale to try out a new sock yarn. We only have a small quantity, and I’m waiting for your feedback before deciding whether to get more. It’s called Emily, and is 80% lamsbwool, 10% angora, 10% cashmere. It is superbly soft, and looks like it will knit up into fabulous socks. Each 100g skein has 400 yards of yarn, and I would recommend 3.5mm needles for it. Whoever gets this yarn, do send me your feedback!

So, as always, the sale goes live at 5pm tomorrow. The sale preview is now up, so do have a browse around at your leisure. Since we are so close to Christmas, and post is now delayed, we will be sending all orers over £50 by Special Delivery (free of charge) to guarantee delivery before Christmas. Sadly, this only applies to UK buyers. But even if you didn’t get your yarn in time for the holidays, what better way to start off 2007 than with a little piece of cashmere heaven?!
