What to stash this week: yarn actually


The last Eden Cottage update of 2015 has everything except yogurt and chocolate buttons. There are several new skeins of hand-dyed yarn, primarily Bowland DK and BFL Sock, both 100% Superwash British BFL, along with gorgeous wooden shawl pins and sheep hand carved in Japan. There are also some sale yarns — Victoria’s lovely Askham 4ply, a super-fine baby alpaca/silk yarn, has been reduced by 25%. You’ll also get 10% off when you purchase 500 grams or more of Askham 4ply, Milburn 4ply (Superwash British BFL/Silk), Whitfell DK or Whitfell Chunky (both 100% baby alpaca). And, if you need some inspiration, patterns from the Drift Collection, inspired by ECY’s Whitfell DK, are now available in book form, which has beautiful photography.


JOMA Yarn has added 32 skeins to the shop, including new semisolids like Mr. Roboto, Roller Derby and Grapezilla and complementary variegated yarns like Sanctuary, Jungle Boogie and We’re All Alright, on their signature Glam Panda (Merino/bamboo/nylon) base. There’s also the blurple-y Electrify Me on most bases. Bonus: use coupon code JOMALOVE15 for 10% off anything in the shop until the end of the year!
