Having your cake and eating it - Yarn Cakes and Sample minis

We’ve two new options to share with you all today – Yarn Cakes and Yarn Samples. The past few weeks we’ve been quiet, posting out orders and taking it all in after the madness that was the rush to launch. However that doesn’t mean we have been idle.

Knitted squares of hand dyed yarns in bright colours

Knitted samples have now been made and blocked for all our current colourways (except Nymph, which has sold out) and today we are launching our Minis – sample 10g mini skeins of each colourway. Allowing you to try before you buy, our minis are £1.50 but with no postage and can be found as an "Option" at the bottom of each yarn, just before check out.

So if you have wondered just how soft our rovings are, or how bright HulkSmash is in the flesh, but don’t quite know if you are ready to place an order – try a sample! We are sure you will fall in love with our yarns.

Our second additional option is our Yarn Cakes – currently we sell our yarns in skeins or hanks. This is how the yarn is dyed and prepared, however we realise that not everyone likes having to deal with the extra work of winding your hanks into a ball of wool.

We will have a blog post coming up next week with our top 5 ways to wind skeins into balls of wool, however if you would like your yarn ready to cast on from the moment you open your package, that is an option we now give you. For a small charge of £1* per skein, we will cake your yarn before postage.

*Unfortunately we are not able to offer this additional service for free at present as this is predominantly a one-woman operation.
