A short hiatus

So things have been quiet around Ovis Yarns for the past month and a half. It wasn't an expected break and there have been times over the past few weeks were I have thought I'd upload this blog post and it would be all hands back to the pump. We have had some serious downs in the Ovis Yarn household, being a family business if something affects us all things have to start running at the bare minimum. This has meant our focus has been on packing orders and getting them out to you all asap in the high standard we strive to achieve. 

What we had to do is take some time out from social media and promotion, which is altogether more taxing and draining mentally. We just didn't have it in us to continue. But things are looking better and brighter. Christmas is around the corner and then there will be the fresh winds of a new year and fresh new diary pages to fill with To-do lists. We will have a shop update on the 20th January which promises to bring colourful delights to brighten even the darkest winter morning.

Throughout the grey and dark times these past 8 weeks I haven't been idle. I've been testing out our new BFL superwash 4ply sock yarn! Mocking up and designing new knitting and crochet patterns and also crafting a new blogging series I am to start in the new year: Not just knitting. This series will explore all the wonderful and imaginative things you can do with 100% wool, and I hope as the series goes to welcome some guest bloggers as well!

A little housekeeping to finish: The everything £10 sale lasted longer than anticipated, but I was really happy so many people have gotten to sample our lovely yarns while it has been running. Prices have now reverted to our new pricing structure - this is due to being able to secure a better deal with our mills and other suppliers. Prices will now stand at:

DK Roving yarns: £11.00 for 100g skein

Aran weight yarns: £12.00 for 100g skein

Chunky weight yarns: £11.50 for 100g skein

Chunky Roving yarns: £10.00 for 100g skein

As always skeins can be pre-wound into a yarn cake for an additional £1.

Our postage has also come down in price and is now £3.50 for all orders in the UK, and £6.00 for International postage. 

So I will wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Here is a sneak peak of our new cowl pattern due for release in early Jan!
