Thank you for coming to our Open Weekend.

Firstly, thank you to everyone who came to our 2018 Mill Open Weekend and for making it such a success. We had a ball over the weekend, and it was fabulous to spend the days leading up to it polishing and sprucing, so each machine could be as proud as punch to show itself off to all the interested visitors.

You came from far and wide – from just down the road, from further up the road and even from Italy!  Over the course of the weekend we gave 18 mill tours (9 a day) to 350 people, with over 1000 people visiting total! And we all ate about a million local homemade cakes accompanied by made many cups of tea.

The introduction of Dr. Mo…

For quite some time now John has been hankering after a new Gill Box to enable us to produce more yummy tops at our Mill. One of John’s most favourite machines, they are an integral part of the process that makes our luxury Tops blends second to none. You have to be top of the Tops (sorry, could not resist the pun!) to be let loose on and operate these lovely machines at the Mill.

A massive thank you to all who visited our stand at Wonderwool Wales last weekend.

We had a fab time staying in a lovely cottage on a lovely farm nestled on a hillside in the beautiful Builth Wells countryside, whilst (of course), sharing our woolly wares with you.

Happy New Year!

We are now officially back to work, both here at the shop, and in the mill.

After a lovely bit of festive time off doing jigsaws, finishing knitting projects, enjoying the fire (when it was needed!) and catching up with friends, we are ready to go in the year 2016 with gusto!

We are very excited for the year ahead.

With a few shows confirmed for 2016 already we have lots of spinning to do!

We will give you lots more information about these shows over the next few weeks. Including information about our third annual Mill Open Weekend (dates confirmed now for 14th & 15th May)!

You can also keep up with this information in our Ravelry group, which you can find here.

Each New Year brings new resolutions, so you will be glad to hear ours is to make more & more yarn and lovely tops!

A few things to tickle your fancy will be the 4-ply Knit by Numbers range. We will give you more information about the top-secret grand unveiling of this nearer the time.

So for now, we would just like to say … Happy New Year!
