  1. We've been looking for a DK wool for the shop for a while. Something with loft and bounce that's going to make cosy sweaters and warm hats. Obviously British wool.

    We're launching this yarn in sweater size bundles of 5 skeins with a 10% saving - there's little more annoying that realisisng that someone has bought a single skien and there isn't enough yarn left for you. By offering bundles first we hope we've covered that. If you need more than 5 skeins for a garment just let me know and I'm happy to arrange a custom dye order for you. 

    Looking for individual skeins? From next Thursday we'll split any remaining bundles so you can mix and match in whatever way makes you happiest.

    Our 2021 yarn club is open - and it's a celebration of British wool. 

    There are three yarn choices - Britsock, BFL nylon and a 100% BFL. The last choice is a new yarn for us. we wanted a pure wool yarn, and this one is stunning. 

    There are four choices about how we dye your yarn - semi solid, splodge, multi colour - and for this year a self striping sock yarn (that's been a very popular choice). You can chose however many skeins you'd like in any combination. You can choose 4 skeins of the same yarn or 2 different styles. We want you to be able to choose what works best for you.

    These were colours in the 2020 yarn club - so semi solid, splodge and multi colour. The colours are designed to work together for stress free colour combining.

    We've had a couple of emails asking what a splodge yarn was. Splodge yans are our version of speckles. They're a bit bolder. There are bigger splashes of colour. So each club splodge will have little sections of three colours and a lot of the main colour.

    What are splodge yarns good for? Splodge yarns are perfect when you want to add more colur to a project but you don't want a multi coloured yarn (where the colour changes are much more regular). Projects like shawls allow splodge yarns to sparkle - and they also make delightful socks.

    Our clubs work by sending you yarn every other month. Most of our customers choose to pay for the whole year up front (that saves you 10%) - but you can just as easily pay for one parcel at a time. We're happy to invoice you so you never miss out, or you can sign up for a single parcel.

    4 skeins

    When will the 2021 clubs close? We'll stop taking sign ups for the January club on 23rd December. That lets us get everything organised and ready to post by the 18th of January. For customers in the EU we're happy to wait until 1st January to invoice you - you'll find more details about that in listings for the EU clubs.
