Our first yarn club: Yarn minis box!

Today we are launching our limited edition mini skein boxes - these little packages of colour and fun will drop on your doorstep every second week of the month from January 2017. In 2016, we ran 3 successful and well received Limited edition mini skein sets - from 2017, these sets will only be available as part of a 3 month subscription service. This change allows us to bring you better colour ways and extras - not just stitch markers!  Each box will contain 5 X 10g mini skeins hand dyed to that months theme, and an added extra (that will...

Weekly notes 11: Wool Week is here! Let's celebrate British wool.

Last week: * Busy busy busy - I have been dyeing, knitting, weaving, doing behind the scenes admin. I was so busy that I neglected social media and the blog for a whole week. I'm one of those people who, once i'm "in the zone", just forgets to share what it happening. Which is a shame because I know how much you all love photos of bright and beautiful wool.  * Our limited edition "The nightmare before Christmas" launched! There are only 4 left!! I've been blown away by how much people have loved them. These are actually going to...

Wool Week - 10th October until 16th October - Events!

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...
