December Update Yarn

Today's post is just a preview of tomorrow's update..    After such a grey and wet Autumn, a little colour is welcome.     There are batches of hand dyed Bowland DK in Ash, Woodland, Hazel, Twig, and Marigold.    There are also batches of hand dyed BFL Sock in Compost, Larch, Falling Leaves, and Tarn.    The Whitfell DK in Steel finally arrived - pre-orders went out earlier this week, but the rest of this batch will be available in this update. There is a limited quantity for the moment!    You'll notice these balls look bigger than the balls...


Yey for grey!

Yey for grey!

Happy news! The Whitfell DK in Steel is finally here. We have to label it all, and then the pre-ordered yarn will go out tomorrow morning..    ..The rest of the remaining yarn will be in Sunday's update at 12 noon. I have a very limited quantity, and I'm not sure how long it'll take to get more.     So.. I'd better crack on with the labelling!

Kirkstall Abbey in November

It's not the kind of day that looks like a good one to go out if I'm honest - it's blowing a gale, dark, murky, and showery. But we did, and Kirkstall Abbey was looking lovely with all the autumn leaves around. I'll show you the knitwear we photographed another time. ;)                                 Finally, does anyone know why these windows are not all the same size? You can see that they're not the original window sizes, but the original sizes also are not all the same size, which seems odd.

October's handmade wardrobe

I thought I'd share some of the handmade wardrobe we used last month - after all, his is largely what it's all about, isn't it? Well, it is for me, although I enjoy most of the process of making things too. Without further ado...  Daydreamer Socks in Milburn 4ply (85% British BFL/15% silk) in Harevst Gold.    Chromium (by David) in Whitfell DK (100% baby alpaca) in Ebony, Steel (which is coming soon), and Natural.     Jen by Josée Paquin in Hayton 4ply (merino/cashmere/nylon)    And Tiny Shoots by Kate Heppell in Milburn 4ply in Rust (this top layers incredibly well...


New yarn!

New yarn!

I'm sure many of you will have seen news of these yarns floating around the ether, but for those who haven't - we have some new yarn! I'm trying to bring more neutral shades into our mill dyed yarn ranges, and if you're wondering why I didn't do that in the first place, well I just didn't have enough shades to choose to be able to fit in all the neutrals I would like! I felt I had to go for maybe one neutral, but the rest should be not-neutral. These days I might have had the confidence to pick...
