Rico Melange DK


We've added 4 new shades to Rico Melange DK.  It's a self striping yarn which is wool rich (53% wool/47% acrylic) and feels super soft and cosy!

We're thinking accessories and garments and we've seen some stunning blankets too!

Check out the chunky version too.

New season Zauberballs in the shop!



We're all stocked up on Zauberballs and Crazy Zauberballs.

A 4ply sock yarn that comes in 100g balls - it's perfect for accessories too, mix and match for some wild combos!

Combined with our new Opal Sunrise, this side of our sock yarn corner is looking very tempting...

Opal Sunrise in the shop!


It was less than a month ago we announced Rainforest XIII, now we have Sunrise, Opal's latest 4ply collection!

It's less patterned,more stripe.  And it's our 5th collection this year, after Rainforest XIIIMy Sock DesignIllusion and Fresh & Juicy.

Get it while you can! 

Perfect for socks and more...

As usual 1 ball makes 1 pair of socks, or 2 pairs of short socks, or (probably) 2 short cowls. You could make 2 hats, or at least 2 pairs of small hand warmers, or several small gift bags.

100g will also give you a decent length of scarf/shawl or a jumper for a baby. Ideas for your odd bits can be found here on Pinterest.

Wendy Ramsdale DK in the shop



Part of our Autumn/Winter collection, Wendy Ramsdale DK is made in Yorkshire using a blend of Masham fleece from the Yorkshire dales.

It's a standard DK weight and is lovely and woolly and so satisfying to knit and wear as the weather starts to cool.

It is 100% wool and handwash only, so perfect for felting too!

We have all 8 shades in stock and lots of DK patterns too

Socks Yeah! DK in the shop

£5.75/50g/112m

This new yarn from Rachel Coopey arrived during the Arts Festival and is stunning!

Perfect for thicker socks, accessories and for garments.  It's a blend of superwash merino and nylon with a bouncy twist and the same great stitch definition as the very popular 4ply version.

We have all the shades in stock - easy to wear neutrals and bright pops of colour.  There is a swatch in the shop and a sock and a cardigan on the needles!

Rachel has a Socks Yeah! DK sock pattern available for free on Ravelry, called Bob. And I love this girl's cardigan by Dani Sunshine...

Pixie Dust by Dani Sunshine available to BUY on ravelry

It would also make a fabulous Palmyre too!

But our shop sample will be another Dani Sunshine pattern... Praline.
