Superhero Genes

Posted on


Tomorrow we’ll be adding a couple of special colourways to the shop and selling them to raise money for a brilliant charity. We’ve dyed up first batches of the colours and then we’re going to take preorders – so that might mean that you’ll wait about a week for your yarn.

Superhero Genes – available in Britsock (left) and BFL nyon (right)

Stonewashed Rainbro mini skeins – available in BFL nylon

The names for both colours come from my lovely friend Scully, and are inspired by her bother Adam who died very recently. Scully and her mum have asked that money raised from this yarn goes to Jeans for Genes Day.

Jeans for Genes Day is the annual fundraising campaign for Genetic Disorders UK, the national charity that supports individuals and families affected by a genetic disorder.

Monies raised on Jeans for Genes Day fund the work of the charity and provide grants to organisations for projects that aim to transform the lives of children with genetic disorders.

We’ll be donating 50% of the purchase price of these yarns to Genetic Disorders UK. The remaining 50% helps cover the yarn costs, VAT, tax and dye costs. In turn that means we can make more of these yarns available and hopefully raise more money for this charity.

If you’d like to donate to Jeans for Genes Day you can do so here. ( )
