Oh man, this is a big week!

We have an amazing new colour of “Sweetass Sock” from Two Birds Knitting. “Ichabod Crane” is perfect for the upcoming Halloween season!

We also have “Andean Heathers” in DK weight from Estelle!

We’re also really excited to tell you about a new yarn line we’ve started carrying! A big welcome from The Loop to West Yorkshire Spinners! Based in West Yorkshire, they source their own raw materials which are then spun (in their own factory) into their beautiful range of yarns! We’d like you to meet:

 

“Exquisite Lace” 80% Falkland Island Wool, 20% Mulberry Silk. We. Are. In. Love.

 

“Bo Peep” 52% Falkland Island Wool & 48% nylon, this yarn is super soft & luxurious for small humans! We have both solid and multi-coloured.

Because the kiddos don’t get to have all the fun, we also have “Illustrious” which is a gorgeous blend of 70% Falkland Island Wool and British Alpaca. It is soooo soft!

Aaannnnd… sock yarn, of course!!

 

Falkland Island wool is historically from Polworth and Corriedale sheep, with other breeds having been added in over time. The base fibre colour is mainly white, while the fibre is soft, it’s also strong. And it makes some beautiful yarn, that’s for sure!
