I am happy to announce that the third instalment of the British Yarn Selection Box is now available for pre-order! British Yarn Selection box 3 is a little different from the first two boxes. This box is all about blends of yarn and how blending two or more fibres together can create interesting yarns. This has been an interesting project for me. In the previous boxes I wrote about each breed of w00l and its characteristics. For this box I’ve… Read More »British Yarn Selection Box No.3: DK Blends Now Available!
I’d grown pretty lax about adding posts to the blog by the end of 2020, but I’m back to try again this year. I’m going to start with talking about the February Yarn Club theme, Carrot Cake Day. When I was searching for themes for my Celebration Day yarn club I was trying to stick to international and UK based days. However I couldn’t resist some of the US based ones, and Carrot Cake Day is one of these. I… Read More »Carrot Cake Day – The Theme for February’s Yarn Club

ORDERS ARE NOW OPEN! I’m excited to announce a project I have been working on for some time now. The inspiration for the British Yarn Selection Box came from wanting to be able to work with yarn from lots of different breeds of sheep, but not necessarily wanting to purchase full skeins of each. The costs can add up when taking into account the cost of a single skein plus postage. I wanted an affordable way for crafters to… Read More »Announcing the British Yarn Selection Box
