The monthly update from Eden Cottage Yarns will be live on 5th July 2015 at 1400 BST. It’s a bumper offering this month, with everything from Aisling kits through to beautifully hand carved wooden sheep and shawl pins, all the way from our master craftsman in Japan. Would you like a sneaky preview of what will be on offer? Walk this way!
First up, we have both the original combination of Ice and Rambling Rose on Titus 4ply (75% merino, 25% silk) in the Aisling Kits. The Aisling shawl was designed by Justyna Lorkowska for Edinburgh Yarn Festival and has been hugely popular since. Confession time: we’re a little Aisling-mad over here and have created a number of colour combinations over the past few updates, including the latest one, which is Whispering Grass and Hibiscus. This adds a more earthy edge to the romantic styling of the Aisling design and we love it. Of course, if you’d like to go wild and design your own colour combination, you can make it into a kit by purchasing the Aisling kit add-on.
If shawls are your thing, but you’d like some mindless summer knitting in the form of squishy, effortless garter stitch, we’ve also put together some limited edition Quadratic kits. This design was created by our own David O’Kelly and has been another popular shawl. Grab your ready-wound yarnling and main colour combinations or indeed use up special yarn leftovers in this versatile project. (Psst! We also have a handful of yarnling jars available. It’s JUST like being in a sweet shop!)
We almost died of cute when the latest shipment of hand-carved sheep, lambs and penguins arrived from Wood Works Crando in Japan. There are a variety of sheep breeds to choose from, including Herdwick and Suffolk, as well as little lambs to make your sheepy family complete! Also available are beautifully crafted wooden shawl pins, perfect for keeping your knitwear secure with rounded edges to prevent damage to delicates.
And as well as all that….
There’s a whole heap of Titus 4ply, BFL Sock and Oakworth 4ply (100% polwarth) in various shades from our standard range along with some new variations for you.
