I can’t quite believe that I’ve been dyeing and selling yarn for nine years. I’m not sure where the time has gone! In celebration of Bluebell Yarns’ ninth birthday I’m gifting you 10% off all yarn and stitch markers (not including Advent Calendars and British Yarn Selection Boxes). I’m also including a free gift in every order, either a mini-skein or a set of removable stitch markers. And of course I’m continuing my free tracked 48 UK shipping offer for… Read More »Bluebell Yarns’ 9th Birthday Sale!
The sudden change in the weather to feel much more autumnal is the perfect time to release my new autumn collection of yarn. You may have seen my comments or newsletters about a slight change to how Bluebell Yarns works, and this is the beginning of that change. My autumn range is available on nearly every one of my regular bases in both full 100g skein size as well as 20g mini-skeins (mini-skeins coming on Monday 22nd). To be able… Read More »Autumn Yarn Release
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
I’ve been working on the idea of Bluebell Basics for some time now, especially after the survey I asked everyone to fill in last month. Now, I’m finally ready to release it! What is Bluebell Basics? Bluebell Basics is a range of affordable hand-dyed yarns. To begin with there are four yarn weights and ten colourways although I hope to expand this over time. I will also be adding mini-skeins to the range soon. I am working on having shade… Read More »Introducing Bluebell Basics
I’m excited to announce that I have been working with Liz Corke to create a sock kit! She’s designed a wonderful pattern with my 100% Falkland Corriedale High Twist sock yarn in the Violet Shadows colourway. The kit contains a printed copy of the Stravaig sock pattern (a code for a digital download is available on request) plus a skein of Corriedale sock yarn in the colourway of your choice. You can also choose to add a set of stitch markers… Read More »First Sock Kit!
I’m happy to announce that for the latest yarn update, I’ve dyed some BFL/Masham Aran weight. The 4ply version of this 75% Bluefaced Leicester 25% Masham blend has always been fairly popular. The natural grey of the Masham combined with the softness of the BFL makes for a lovely soft yarn with a gorgeous depth of colour. Of course like all my yarn it hasn’t been superwash treated and contains no synthetic fibres. I decided to use semi-solid colours for… Read More »Yarn Update – BFL/Masham Aran
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
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
