There are lots more rainbows to come in this weeks shop update, and I wanted to start with something special.
We've taken the original Pride Rainbow colours and overdyed them with black to give eight glorious shades on our Moonbroch base.
Each set of mini skeins gives you 40 grams and 332 meters of kid mohair and silk. As the yarn is a laceweight it goes a long way for little weight.
The kid mohair gives this yarn a beautiful haze. This yarn works well on its own as the silk core gives it plenty of strength, and it's also a delight when combined with other yarns.
We're going to donate 50% of the proceeds from the Pride rainbow mini skeins to charity. We're going to split that money equally between Stonewall UK and BLMUK (Black Lives Matter UK)
We've chosen to donate to the UK arm of both charities as both racism and homophobia are still rife in the UK. It's not a problem that only exists elsewhere.
Donating 50% of the proceeds from each sale means we cover the cost of materials, tax and VAT and contribute to studio costs. That means we can continue to support charities on an ongoing basis.

These yarns will be in the shop at 1900 on Thursday 18th June, so if you're browsing before then you won't see them. Make sure you never miss an update by signing up for our newsletter.
