Hello from ECY Shedquarters. We have been very busy with getting lots of yarn ready for the website and preparing our Seasonal Stash Boxes. This week alone we have added Titus 4ply and our sparkly festive Rosedale 4ply update. This includes Festive Fun (cream with green and red speckles) alongside Apeldoorn Tulip (a rich red) and Larch (dark green). Rosedale 4ply is a Merino/nylon sock yarn with gold Stellina sparkle running through it. You may think that the sparkly fibres would be itchy against your skin but even the more sensitive members of our team find it comfortable to wear against the skin.
We also have an update of Hayton 4ply hitting the website on Monday 26th November. Hayton 4ply is a delicious blend of Merino Cashmere and nylon giving all the best qualities you would want in a yarn: softness of the merino, strength from the nylon and luxury from the cashmere. If you are a fan of Liz Corke and her patterns you should be very familiar with this blend. Liz’s latest pattern Tar-Sgàil uses Hayton 4ply as do many of her fingerless mitt patterns!
We are down to four Seasonal Stash Boxes left at the time of writing so if you are interested in getting your hands on one don’t delay! The listing now also has a link to a folder which shows the contents for anyone who would prefer for it not to be a surprise!
For readers in the UK we have been confirmed as vendors at East Anglia Yarn Festival on 9th-10th March 2024. Tickets for the show go on sale on Saturday morning so if you want to see us in person it would be great to see you!
