  1. New Hand Dyed Sock Yarn Colours- and Dark Chocolate Tunnocks Tea Cakes

    Posted on

    There's lots of new sock yarn for this weeks update. Socks seem like a perfect, fairly mindless project for now - and these yarns work beautifully for garments and accessories too.

    The shop update will go live on Thursday at 1600. That's a little earlier than usual, but at our normal update time I'll be taking part in an online lampwork class.

    Yesterday we told you about the 4 new Superhero Genes colourways.


    We've also redyed some out of stock colours.

    There are more multi coloured yarns too. These have been really popular, so we've restocked a couple of the colourways and added some new things too.

    Finally we've added an elusive Tunnocks colourway to our range. Tunnocks tea cakes are usually covered in milk chocolate and have red and silvwer wrappers. There are also tea cakes which are covered in dark chocolate and which have navy blue and gold wrappers. Our local bisuit supplier doesn't stock these, so there are no biscuits in the photos.

    The Tunnocks biscuit collection. 20% from the sale of these yarns is going to The Trussell Trust.

    The yarns above will be in the shop at 1600 on Thursday 28th May, so if you're browsing before then you won't see them (well you#ll see the exisiting Tunnocks colourways but not the new one!)

  2. Last Chance Mini Skeins

    Posted on

    When we retired our old BFL nylon sock yarn we discounted the remaining skeins and they flew out the door to new homes.

    I'd completely managed to forget that we also had some mini skeins - I'd taken them out of the website and forgot to relist them.


    These will be in the shop update on Thursday. There are rainbow sets - and some lucky dip sets too. Both sets have 7 x 10 gram skeins - so 275 meters of colour. You'll find these in the last chance area of the shop from 1900 on Thursday.

    If you're stuck at home right now and looking for small pops of colour for projects these would be perfect.
