Thank you Wonderwool Wales

What a spin-a-thon!

It was lovely to see everyone at Wonderwool Wales at the weekend.

We took along with us a record breaking 51 cans full of lovely and colourful Tops and fibre! Including some limited edition runs that Jack and Helena (our latest woolly recruits at the Mill) created under the watchful eye of Becky. They were very popular! Here are some of them in prep at the mill before they left for the show.

New Knit by Numbers shade

We are starting to pack for this weekends Wonderwool extravaganza! Both Butler and Kevin (our 2 spinners) are working ten to the dozen to get all the yarn finished.

But luckily they managed to fit something new for us to bring! ANOTHER new Knit by Numbers shade!! This time we have gone for Teal – a gorgeous Jewel shade blended from other Knit by Numbers shades.

We will have it available in 4ply and DK this weekend at Wonderwool Wales. The remainder on our return from Wonderwool will then go onto the secret Mill Members page for a limited time and then become available to all.

Here is a photo of the finished yarn to wet your appetite! Yum!

Please note, the shade is slightly brighter and more peacocky in person.

We will see you this weekend on stand M5, with a whole load of spinning Tops and plenty of Yarn and Socks for all … including our brand new yarn Devonia in 4ply (if you haven’t heard about it already find info about our glorious new range HERE).

See you in Wales…

Return from Edinburgh

We are now catching up spinning yarn after so much went to new homes at Edinburgh Yarn Festival. Wow, what an amazing show.

We would like to thank Jo and Mica for putting on such a great event and being such good dance partners! We had a ball at the Ceilidh – we danced as much as our little feets allowed – not also the correct steps I suspect, but we were full of enthusiasm!
