The shop has been updated to include a pair of 100% British BFL Aran-weight skeins.
The first is called Carbuncle, named after Final Fantasy 8’s adorable little green pixie pal who you can summon to protect your party. He’s such a cute little scamp I couldn’t not dye a colourway inspired by him. And as it turns out, it looks beautiful — the blue and turquoise meld perfectly, while the red adds a pretty cool pop.
The second skein is inspired by the insidious Team Inferno from Robot Unicorn Attack II. My husband (who is in Team Inferno), pointed out that I have a Team Rainbow colourway… so it’s only fair I include a Team Inferno. I’m torn up upside, although I bleed rainbow for my team, this skein is PRETTY. It’s a blend of fiery colours inspired by hellfire and smouldering coals.
The BFL base takes colour beautifully, and just glows in the sunlight, and I’m proud to be supporting the British wool trade. These skeins (and all of the yarn I sell) were spun in my home county, which just fills me with pride.
