This month brings us the last ECY update for 2015, and lots of news for you.
First of all there’s the new hand dyed yarn — primarily Bowland DK (100% superwash British Bluefaced Leicester) and BFL Sock (also 100% superwash British BFL). Also look out for our gorgeous hand-carved shawl pins and sheep straight from our woodturner friend in Japan.
Next up, we’re having a sale on our lovely Askham 4ply — this baby alpaca/silk yarn is super-fine and soft, with 200m to each 50g ball and reduced by 25%, it’s a great oppurtunity to stock up on sweater quantities. Speaking of which, we also offer 10% off (automatically applied) when you purchase 500g or more of Milburn 4ply, Askham 4ply, Whitfell DK, or Whitfell Chunky. We thought it’d be helpful for those larger projects! This leads me to saying that we now have a limited quantity of the lovely Whitfell DK (100% baby alpaca) in Steel, and Whitfell Chunky (also 100% baby alpaca) in Natural and Steel. Look out for Maya’s Shawl by Justyna Lorkowska on Ravelry, as that is a beautiful new pattern which uses three 100g balls/skeins of Whitfell Chunky.
What else…? We now have five colours of our ever-popular Milburn 4ply (superwash British BFL/Silk) available in balls as well as skeins. We thought it would be great to be able to pick it up and cast on immediately — plus it looks neater!
Stuck for a gift for a knitting friend (or yourself)? Our Drift Collection books would be a great gift — it’s a pretty hefty tome, with plenty of patterns to choose from and lots of lush photography.
Finally, may I remind you that we offer free UK shipping on orders over £50 and free international shipping on orders over £100. Customers outside the EU — once you put your address in our website does also take the 20% UK sales tax off for you.
