New Britsock Neutral Yarn Colours

As lockdown 2 starts in England we wanted to take a quick minute to explain what will happen with The Knitting Goddess over the next 4 weeks. We're the only people in the workshop (and actually most days I'm the only person in the workshop as Bobbie works from home). In turn that means I can keep going to work.

We're taking extra care packing parcels - so handwashing before we start packing and again if we get interrupted for anything. The only people near your yarn are Bobbie and I. We don't have visitors to the workshop.

Our post is collected daily, so we can get orders out quickly. Right now Royal mail is doing an amazing job and most parcels are arriving in 1-2 days for the UK.  We've got goos atocl of our yarn bases, the mills we deal with are still open and as all of our suppliers are UK based we're not suffering from delays as stock has to clear customs.

With all of that in mind we wanted to make sure that this weeks update was full of the neutral colours which work well with colours you might already have in your yarn stash.

Our Britsock base is a real favourite- and it's the perfect yarn for many things. Strong enough for socks and soft enough to snuggle into this amazing yarn is spun by John Arbon. It's a blend of British BFL, Wensleydale, alpaca and nylon. 

If you'd like lots of smaller amounts of colour then colourwheels are just the thing. We restcoked the Printer Ink Shades and added a new Hydrangea colourway too.
