I can’t quite believe it’s the middle of August already! This year has been so strange, yet seems to have sped by. 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
There are lots of wonderful things happening at Bluebell Yarns! I’m not ready to announce them all yet, but there’s plenty more I can tell you right now! Stitch Markers I’ve made some new stitch markers and progress keepers (pictured above) which are available on Etsy here. Yarn Shows I can also say that I’m going to be visiting at least three yarn shows again this year! I’ll be back at Wonderwool Wales, which was fantastic (if a little chilly)… Read More »New Year Updates
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

The funny thing about being an indie dyer is that you have to think about things far ahead of when you want to. Currently, this means Christmas. Due to the success of my Yarn Advent Calendars last year, and the fact that there’s a rather major event happening for me in September, this year I’m starting early. I’ve spoken to the mill and they’ve agreed to wind the mini skeins for me which will save me so much time.… Read More »Thinking about Yarn Advent Calendars
This is only a quick post today to tell you about something. Next week, on Monday 23rd July at 9am (BST), change is coming. I’ve been thinking of it a bit as a relaunch, so you’ll notice quite a few changes. I’m overhauling my website and my social media. I’m also doing some price restructuring. This means if you want to buy any of my yarn at its current prices, do it before 9am (BST) on Monday 23rd! I am… Read More »Change is coming
The #titsoutcollective yarn is now released! You can see mine here, and everyone else’s here. Follow #titsoutcollective on social media. Check back here tomorrow at 7pm to read about why I selected my chosen charity, Dogs For Good. My ‘If I wanted exposure, I’ll get my tits out (but I’ll need assistance)’ yarn is initially available as a small batch. When this sells out, I will open pre-orders. I will aim to get pre-orders dyed and shipped out within two… Read More »Charity yarn is now live! (#titsoutcollective)
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)
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. This year’s advent calendars sold a record amount – 48! I’d initially only made 42 so that’s an amazing result. I’ve loved seeing pictures and videos of people opening their little silver packages. Everyone seems to have… Read More »Happy New Year!
