Wonderwool: a round up.

Thanks to everyone who came to find visit our stall at Wonderwool Wales last weekend. We appreciate your lovely comments, your purchases, your projects, and your enthusiasm. We had such a lovely time, a successful show (with an exception which I'll talk about in a mo), and glorious Welsh sunshine. Here's a wee glimpse of our stall, which looked a bit ravaged by the end. We stayed in the lovely Llandrindod Wells as usual, and it's so peaceful and beautiful.. Just lovely. There were many sheep (the top two are Wensleydales and the bottom two are Bluefaced Leicesters). But... Here's...

Tips for Visiting Shows

After years of visiting shows as a customer and vendor, and contributing to other peoples' show advice guides, I thought it might finally be time to compile my own.

Ewe & Ply: a new LYS in Shrewsbury

Today I thought I'd introduce you to one of our lovely new stockists, Ewe & Ply, which is based in Shrewsbury - the gallery level of the market hall to be more accurate. I've seen pics of the market hall and it looks absolutely gorgeous. I used to love market halls as a teenager, for their little independent and quirky shops, and these days they seem to have either gone really cheap and rubbish, or more upmarket - Shrewsbury has done the latter, evidently (which I applaud)! Anyway, we sent Teri and Becca some of our lovely yarn recently, and they...

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.
