End of Year Sale

End of Year Sale

  • by

It’s been another strange year and I feel like I’ve been in a bit of a limbo. I want to make a fresh start in 2022, which means I’ve been having a bit of a sort out. I have a fair amount of yarn which I’ve never gotten around to listing, plus lots of bits and pieces that I haven’t been entirely sure what to do with. On 2nd December at 7pm I will be listing everything I can find… Read More »End of Year Sale

Finding My Motivation

  • by

You may have noticed that I don’t tend to post much about myself either on this blog or across social media. Most of what I do post is about yarn and crafts with the occasional mention of animals I meet or walks I go on. This has been a problem this year, as I’ve lost my motivation somewhat so haven’t had a great deal to post about! During my break in August I had some time to think properly about… Read More »Finding My Motivation

A Short Break

  • by

Please place any orders by 3pm on Wednesday 4th August otherwise they may not be posted until Tuesday 17th August. It’s time for my annual trip to Bristol to pet sit for my parents. I will still be available to answer any queries, although my response may be slower than usual. I won’t be near my yarn though so won’t be able to post orders for anything apart from stitch markers. My lovely husband has offered to post orders a… Read More »A Short Break

Yarn mop uses and one of a kind skeins

  • by

Yarn mop use 1 At the end of my dye session yesterday I used my customary yarn mop. While I was swishing it around, I realised that I’ve never explained where most of my one of a kind skeins come from. During a dye session I tend to use a few colours. I mix them up in bottles, jars and jugs, depending on how I’m using each dye. I also use spoons, and sometimes syringes if I require precise measurements.… Read More »Yarn mop uses and one of a kind skeins

I’m holding a 15% off all yarn* sale! Due to something very exciting happening that I can’t quite announce yet, it would be useful to temporarily reduce the quantity of yarn I have.

Later this month I’m going to be releasing my new no-nylon 100% Falkland Corriedale High Twist sock yarn.

I’ll be doing a full update with lots of fun new colourways. The new yarn takes dyes really wonderfully and I have some fantastic bright new colours which… Read More »10% off Corriedale/Mohair Sock Yarn!

Happy New Year!

A recap, and looking forward

Looking Back at 2020 2020 is finally over! It was a difficult year for so many, but I’m not going to dwell on that. For Bluebell Yarns it was my busiest year yet. I had planned to attend at least four shows during 2020 but obviously they were all cancelled. In the end I ended up doing lots of virtual shows instead, beginning with Virtual Wonderwool in April. I’m amazed at how well that went, and it paved the way… Read More »A recap, and looking forward
