This year we have lots of exciting things planned for Wool Week which runs from 10th October - 16th October, if you live in the Merseyside and West Lancashire area it is even more exciting!
Firstly we are really excited to announce that for Wool week we will be the featured yarn/dyer at the Good Wool Shop in Formby! Although it is a 20 minutes drive away, this is our Local yarn store (as Liverpool, despite being a large city, sadly does not have a dedicated yarn store) and the team that run it are wonderfully friendly. There will be lots of new colour ways on our ever popular Poppy Sock yarn and some delightful treats, so pop down and grab some wool.
They have other events running that week, including a Fleece to Fibre workshop, Knitting Natters and I will also be giving a free talk on Friday 14th! I'll be chatting about what I do, how I do it, and in particular why I love and use colour the way I do. So if you fancy a cosy chat about colour, British wool, and why I don't have any pastels colour way in my repertoire pop along!
The talk runs from 2.30 - 3.30 pm, Fri 14 October, free admission, tea will be served, and the venue is officially called Holy Trinity Church Lounge, access at the side of The Workshop. There will also be goody bags - not that I'm trying to bribe people come!
If you are not local, do not fret! We will be having two launches on the 10th and 12th October - first is our NeNe Shawl! If you have met us at a recent event, or signed up to our newsletter you will have already had a peep of this pattern - but it will be officially launched on the 10th October.
Then on the 12th October we will be launching our new Wensleydale DK base - it is so soft and has a lovely warm fuzzy handle because of the long staple of the fibres and boy does this base love colour! We will have mini skein sets, and four new colour ways for you all. You will not want to miss this yarn!
