Braaaaaiins… Zombie-themed yarns

Zombie-themed yarns now available on a variety of superwash bases in varying weights, including DK and sock.

Can I interest you in a Refleshmint? Why not add on a Zombie tin and stitch marker? The tin is perfect for keeping your markers and small notions together and as a bonus contains brain shaped mint flavoured candy!

My Mama Knits is Moving!

We will be moving over the holidays, so the etsy shop is taking a hiatus and will be shut after 30th November 2016 until the New Year.

If you are in the Glasgow area you can still catch me at the Etsy Made Local event 3rd Dec at The Briggat. Until then I hope everyone has holidays filled with joy and look forward to dyeing up new colourways in the new digs. I’d also like to give a big thanks to everyone who supported my fibre adventures this year through purchases, kind comments and encouragement in general. It really has meant so much to me.

Shop Update this Week

New colourways and old favorites now back in stock on my new ridiculously soft sock base. Colourways pictured include: Painting of Koi, Jezebel and Lipstick on Your Collar. All available in 100g skeins of Superwash Merino sock weight wool – 75% merino wool and 25% nylon for hand or machine knitting. Beautifully soft Merino with nylon for a bit of extra stretch and strength. Each 100g hank is about 465 yards / 425 meters.

All wool is hand dyed in single or small batches then washed and dried ready to be knit up into your own unique creation.

Old Favorites and New Bases

I’ve had great fun the last couple of months trying out new bases and colourways. New to the shop are some British sourced and spun Blue Faced Leicester and Merino, both in Aran and DK weights. There are also some gorgeously soft and durable Superwash Merino Sock and High Twist Superwash BFL Sock waiting for a new adventure on someone’s needles. Also in the works is a massive restock of minis!
