News of charity yarn coming this weekend

  • Pastel rainbow mini skeins.

When we heard about Operation: Social Justice, we felt we had to get involved as it is a great opportunity to spread the love with acts of random kindness. Our chosen charity is Stonewall, an organisation in the UK supporting the LGBTQ+ community. Our next update will be going live at 12 noon UK time on Sunday 15th March and will include a special one-off colourway “Trans Rights are Human Rights” on our Brimham HT base. We will also have pastel rainbow mini skein sets on the same base. 20% of the purchase price of these two products will go to Stonewall. There are a limited number of skeins of the one-off colourway but if they sell out we will open preorders for more.

Over the past few weeks we have been very busy adding yarn to the website, restocking some of our popular bases. On Friday 13th March we will add a few colourways of Bowland 4ply, our 100% British Bluefaced Leicester yarn. Last week we had a small sock yarn update featuring Tempo 4ply and Brimham 4ply in a selection of browns and neutrals. Before that was a bumper Hayton 4ply update, adding a great selection of variegated colourways and semisolids on one of our most popular bases, a blend or Merino, Cashmere and nylon. Prior to that we had Oakworth DK, our New Zealand Polwarth yarn, in a great selection of colourways. This yarn is a real workhorse and is great in a wide variety of projects including the free Follifoot Legwarmers pattern, which is available both or our website and on Ravelry.

Looking forward to next Friday we are very excited to announce that we have an alpaca-based update with both Askham 4ply and Askham Aran getting a much needed restock. Both of these yarns are a blend of baby alpaca with silk, making them super soft with a lovely shine.
