Its official, we are now well into the run up to Christmas and festive cheer is starting to bubble…
With the unveiling of our updated website this morning and the impending arrival of our new catalogues on your doorsteps
…We are getting very excited here and are now starting to prepare for our next show – Bath Christmas Market!
On our up-dated website and in our new catalogue you will find a number of new scrummy things!
In sock world we have brand new and improved Alpaca Bed socks! A more snugg and cosy fit in lovely new colours, these socks are perfect for wearing when relaxing (or knitting) in front of the fire and or cosy in bed. The new colours are available in size 4-7, and select colours are also available in size 8-10 too.
We have also re-styled The Exmoor Sock, still in the fab and fun colours, but now a neater, less baggy and slouchy sock.
And we are introducing a number of new colours to The Stanbury Walker … we love the Walker and our local Farmer, John Stanbury, who has the very sheep who provide the wool these socks are made from.
The new Stanbury Walker colours are tonal and autumnal to complement the zingy bold original shades.
Our new yarns include Alpaca Delight – an incredible soft and luxurious pastel range with natural colour complements. This yarn is a blend of Alpaca and Merino and is a fingering weight so perfect for shawls and wraps or light weight jumpers.
Harvest Hues is another new yarn range. Made from our dyed Merino tops blended with the bouncy and characteristic Zwartbles. Frankie at the mill designed them by blending coloured tops together and adding a hint of Zwartbles and the outcome is a beautiful mottled range of rustic fingering weight yarn.
And if you would like to spin your own yarn, we also have Harvest Hues in Tops. This Merino / Zwartbles blend is also perfect for felting and other crafty thngs!
