Sock Yarn and a Newsletter

  • by

I’ve finally found it! I’ve finally got my hands on some British (well, mostly, more on that below), non-superwash, no nylon sock yarn! I say mostly British, because it isn’t 100%. After much thought and consideration, I have decided that this is a good enough compromise for now  until I find something better. The new sock yarn is a blend of 50% British Mohair and roughly 25% British Falkland Islands/25% South American Corriedale. As I said before, it contains no… Read More »Sock Yarn and a Newsletter

Happy New Year!

This time last year I was making grand plans for Bluebell Yarns. While there were various circumstances that caused a lot of these plans not to come to fruition I can still say that it has been a good year for the company.

Everyone seems to have… Read More »Happy New Year!

January Competition Winner

Using the wonderful I’ve drawn the January competition winner to design your own colourway. The winner is… Evie, who contacted me via email: “Picture this countryside scene. Big round bales of golden yellow straw in a field, green hedgerows line the field and a cloudy grey sky above it….. Maybe with a wee bit of blue peeking through here and there. I’ve yet to see a yarn reflecting this scene, and I think it would be beautiful.” Congratulations Evie!… Read More »January Competition Winner
