  1. One Cool Wool, Two Cool Wool, Three Cool Wool, Four!

    One of the most regular questions I get asked is 'How many balls of Cool Wool do I need for a scarf'? Cool Wool is a chunky 100% Peruvian wool we have just started stocking.

  5. Time for a new project - Icelandic Lopapeysa

    The Lopapeysa originates in Iceland in early or mid-20th century, at a time when imports had displaced older and more traditional Icelandic clothing and people began to search for new ways to utilise the plentiful native wool. The design has since become a national icon for Icelandic cultural identity.

  10. What yarns are suitable for Babies?

    One of the more frequently asked questions I get is 'What yarns are suitable for knitting or crocheting for a baby?'. Well this question can be somewhat of an open ended one, with most of the yarns in the shop suitable in one form or another. But there are a number of things you can bear in mind when choosing a yarn to knit for the littlest member of the family.
