It's been a colourful few days in the workshop - the perfect antidote to the rain and dull days outside.

We've dyed up a whole rainbow (and more) of our splodge colours. The yarn is our 4ply British Blue Faced Leicester, mulberry milk and British baby alpaca - total luxury. A single skein will make a shawl that's a pleasure to wrap round your neck, and adding a second skein will give you lots of options.

There are 400 meters in each 100 gram skein.

As well as a rainbow of colours we've also dyed some more neutral backgrounds. These are ideal if you'd like to combine a pop of colour with a more subtle look.

Fibally we dyed navy and plum colourways. I'd love to say that we planned how beauifully these work together, but it was a very happy accident. I'm very tempted to put these together in a striped shawl.

Now that all of the advent calendar orders have been posted I'm ready to start making more mini skeins, and the rainbow colours make an adorable set.

There are 320 meters in this set - perfect for a little project or to combine with another skein.

These yarns will be in the shop at 1900 on Thursday 15th October.

I've taken pictures of colour combinations of the rainbow splodges - and if there's a combination you'd like to see please get in touch and I can take a quick picture for you.

Green, turquoise and blue. This reminds me of summer at the seaside on one of those rare and perfect days when the sun shines and the sea is turquoise.
