YarnPony at The Woolly Brew


Hot on the heels of our first designer signing, we're having our first yarn trunk show!

We are very pleased to announce that Mica from YarnPony will be at the shop on  Saturday 26th January.

Edinburgh based Mica started YarnPony late last year - combining her passion for knitting and dyeing to create a stunning collection of yarns...

some of the shades in 50/50 Silk Merino blend - STUNNING!


She dyes a variety of fiber blends... each fiber takes the dye differently, creating a wonderful semi-solid colour palette.  You can read about her dyeing process on her website...  

There is Mustang which is a 100% merino and Bluefaced Pony 100% Bluefaced Leicester.  Or how about Bluefaced Posh Pony - a blend of Bluefaced Leicester, silk and cashmere.  Show Pony - is particularly stunning - a mix of 50/50 merino and silk.  Or maybe you'd like some Pony Deluxe - a 50/50 blend of Baby Camel and Silk!!

Prices for this unique yarn collection  range from £8 for 50g of Bluefaced Pony to £27 for Pony Deluxe (it IS most definitely deluxe).  Fiona has her eye on some Mustang (£16) and Show Pony (£19)  4ply...

Mica will be at the shop with lots of yarns and exclusive patterns.  If you'd like to come along and see her colours in person, have a chat and feel for yourself how soft Pony Deluxe really is, she'll be there from 10am - 5pm.

Please note this is a trunk show.  It means the yarns are only in the shop on Saturday 26th January.
