You may have already seen, but I’m excited to say that from today Bluebell Yarns is now my full time job! I’ve just returned from a week off so I thought now would be a good time to do a round up of everything you can find in the shop at the moment. Sale! As there are now… Read More »August Update
I’ve been thinking about this project for over a year now, and I’m happy to finally have had the time to be able to dye and release it! This is the Deep Blue Sea range – seven colourways based around my popular ‘Deep Blue Sea’ colourway, plus underwater themed stitch markers. I have plans to expand this range, and use it as inspiration to create a few more ranges too!. Please let me… Read More »Deep Blue Sea – A new range of yarn and stitch markers

Wonderwool Roundup This weekend I exhibited at Wonderwool Wales. This was my first show and it was fantastic! I met so many lovely people, and received some wonderful comments about my yarn. The weather on Saturday was horrid and it was freezing in the halls, so thank you to everyone who braved the wind and rain to come out and visit! Luckily on Sunday the weather was much nicer so I think everyone had an even better time. As it… Read More »Post Wonderwool Shop Update

I’m just writing a quick update today about a couple of things. New Logo You may have noticed I have a new logo. My lovely sister-in-law Abbi designed it for me. Usually she designs cards and fabrics so I highly recommend you take a look at her work on Etsy and on Instagram. Yarn News I’m in the process of updating the Etsy site with all my yarn. I also dyed a significant quantity over the last few days so… Read More »Brand New Logo

£3 of every sale of my #titsoutcollective yarn is going to Dogs for Good. £1 of every other sale of yarn throughout July (apart from mini skeins) is also going to Dogs for Good. I thought I’d write a little about why I’ve chosen to support them. As well as dyeing yarn, I have a part time job in a restaurant. Over a year ago, maybe two, I met a man. I’m not going to mention names. He used a… Read More »Dogs For Good
On 1st July at 12pm (BST), something special is going to happen. I, along with over 200 others (the #titsoutcollective), will be releasing special yarns, patterns, bags and notions, with the aim of raising money for various charities. You can read more details at Countess Ablaze but here is a brief explanation. Back in March, Countess Ablaze was asked to provide yarn for a ‘charity’ event for nothing but exposure. In response, she dyed two special limited colourways, one of which… Read More »Charity Yarn Release (#titsoutcollective)
