New Year -New Yarns

New Year, New Yarns added to the website
Those of you who have seen me at shows recently may be familiar with my Spry yarns which are now available in 4 ply, DK and Aran weights. This is a 100% British yarn- British sheep, spun in England and, of course, hand dyed in England. It took me a long time to find a wholly British yarn that I love- nicely spun and super soft.Below are a few of the colours in the sock weight . I would add that if you’re looking for a DK sweater yarn, this is perfect and I can dye up sufficient quantities for you in your colour choice. There is a bigger selection of colours on the website with more to come!

spry-4-plyI am particularly excited by Squeal Lace ( yes I did when I first met this yarn) . This is a combo of Yak, Silk and Merino and it is just wonderful- some of the colours:

The warmth of the base colour gives an incredible depth when dyed.I have more colours drying as we speak which will be added shortly.
Last but not least is Donegal Dot- a really fun sock weight yarn with dye resistant coloured neps.

I have updated the website with many new colours and you can see a small sample on the Whats New page and check out your favourite bases to see a bigger range.

Most popular patterns recently are Frisky and Spry shawls:


I’m off to Paris next week to exhibit at Aiguille en Fetes, then to Zwolle in Holland. I am particularly excited about Unravel at the end of February and will be at the Olympia Knitting and Stitching Show in early March as well. I hope to see you at one of these shows.
