June's update preview

Seeing as our next update is on the 15th of June (7pm) and it's now the 12th I thought I'd best post the update preview! It's all Tempo 4ply, which is our superwash wool/nylon sock yarn. It knits up softly with good drape for shawls, but it's also incredibly hardwearing for socks and kids' clothes. I made my Boxy in it, and you can see a whole gallery of Tempo 4ply projects on the blog HERE. There are quite a few Cottage Originals in this update, and dyelots are five or ten skeins.  In no particular order... I will list...

Update Preview: Jan 2017

Morning/afternoon/evening... I hope you're all well! We've had a busy start to the year, as usual, although it's been a bit more chaotic with a 15 week old Labrador puppy about - I'm sure you'll have seen my pics on social media! It's getting easier as she gets older though and the days getting longer is helpful too. Anyway, so far is year I've mostly been busy working on wholesale yarn, but I did prepare lots of BFL Sock ready for Sunday (the 29th)'s update - it'll go live at 2pm UK time. We actually have a sparkling new website...

aka Thea Colman - I'm sure you knew that already though! We love Thea's work, and have collborated on a number of projects now, so I thought it'd be really nice to celebrate this with a gallery of Thea/ECY projects and a chat to her about her work. It comes at a time when she's just released Pimms Cup on Ravelry as a single pattern - this was part of the Drift Collection which we released in September 2015. On top of that I've got print copies of Dubonnet and Cardamom Rose which I'm putting together into kits. "V: How...

New yarn: Falkland merino

We have new yarn! This is a new hand dyed base which I've had for a while but only recently had chance to dye up. It's 100% Falkland Merino, with 400m to 100g. It's a very plump, cushiony yarn - much thicker-looking than most of my other 4ply bases, and super-soft.  Here's one of each:  I haven't given it a proper name so it'll be in the 4ply section of the website just named Falkland 4ply. The category will appear HERE on Thursday night at 7pm.  Here are the dyelots I've created.. this is Meadow Rue:  Stonecrop:  Fuchsia:  Bark:  Frosty Fields...
