A very big thank you to EVERYBODY
for your support so far in this strange year, 2020!

Wow! What an unexpected turn of an entire year.
So many plans made at the beginning of  the year went right out of the window…and so, the makers-of-plans promptly sat at home crafting and dreaming up new and fabulous ideas for what to do and make at home instead!

We really and truly appreciate every single order we have received in-store and online during and post-lockdown.
Your incredible support this year has meant that we have been able to expand on our exciting range of exquisite yarn and fibrecraft tools to bring you even more wonderful goodies to fill your crafting time with.

 

SHOP MOVE TO #12A IMHOFF FARM

In case you haven’t visited us in the last few months, we have moved to a temporary new shop space at Imhoff Farm while we wait for our new yarnie home on the farm to be ready next year….If you’re visiting, head to the left of the Farm Shop. Look out for our chalk boards and bunting flags to help you find us.

Our shop hours are:
Mondays 10am-2pm
Tuesday to Saturday 9am-4pm.

We will announce additional festive season hours soon: please watch our social media pages for this news. Mask wearing and social distancing are still mandatory.

What’s happening in 2021? We will be moving next door to our current shop space towards the end of the first quarter of 2021, where we have lots of exciting things planned in our bigger space: including a lovely workshop and social crafting room!

CHIAOGOO TWIST SHORTIES

 

We have been completely blown away by how these nifty little Twist Shortie sets from ChiaoGoo have closed the gap on the benefits of circular needles vs DPN’s.

Sets contain a 5cm set + an 8cm set of tips, with a 13cm, 15cm and 20cm cable, end stoppers and accessories. Knitting with these is a complete game-changer for sock, hat and sleeve knitting.

RED: [M] Mini 2mm – 3.25mm tips
BLUE: [S] Small 3.5mm – 5mm tips

We have a few Blue sets in stock with more of both sets arriving in a few weeks time, so be sure to pop them on your wishlist ;)

MARBLING KITS

Wondering what the marbling kits can do? Pop over to the Jacquard website to have a look at the amazing ways to use these materials on paper or fabric, or jump right in and order one to play with. Find them on our website here

 

JAQUARD DYES

We LOVE the Jacquard range of dyes and we are very excited to have recently received a new shipment of colours!

These are “acid dyes” suitable for dyeing wool, silk, mohair and other ‘protein fibres’. These dyes react with an acid to bond with the fibre. One can use vinegar or citric acid for this purpose.

Find dyes and info on how they are used here.

 

UNDYED YARN

Dye needs yarn to colour!

We have a selection of beautiful undyed yarn by African Expressions for you to experiment with and hopefully create the perfect hand-dyed colourway for your next dream project.

Find our African Expressions undyed yarn here

WE HAVE BEEN MISSING YOU!

Please remember to social distance and to wear your mask.

I trust that you and your family have been keeping well, and that you have found refuge in your fibre-crafting activities this year so far. I hope that your festive season ahead will be relaxed and filled with nourishing friend and/or family time.

As always, happy yarn and fibre crafting!
With Love, Gina xx
