  1. Interview with Beata Jezek of Hedgehog Fibres

    We love getting new yarns in the shop, and having Hedgehog Fibre as a new brand is extra exciting! Their colourways are beautiful and speckled, from subtle neutrals to bright neons and everything in between. We currently have Twist Sock and Skinny Singles in the shop, but they are going quickly. Our first shipment sold out in two weeks!  We...
  2. Yarn Pairings for Amirisu Volume 10

    Amirsu have knocked it out of the park with another fantastic issue. Spring/Summer can be a traditionally difficult season for a knitting magazine, but there is no concern for that here! There are three beautiful tops, two sweaters and two shawls. Each of the pieces are wearable and practical, but with little details that really make them stand out. The...
  3. Getting to Know: Sweet Sheep Body Shoppe

    Here at the shop we have been looking for some ethically produced, knitter friendly hand products to carry for our customers. We were so happy to find Sweet Sheep Body Shoppe, a small business in the US that produces just that. We have a few scents in a solid lotion bar that includes lanolin, a natural oil produced by sheep...

  6. Welcome to the world of Blacker Yarns

    We are so excited to introduce a brand new yarn company in the shop. You all got a preview of Blacker Yarns with the limited edition Cornish Tin that flew out the door. Now we have three of their lines in stock more permanently. We have Lyonesse (a linen/Falkland wool blend), Blacker Swan (Falkland/Shetland Wool), and Westcountry Tweed (British wool). The mill...
  7. Profile: Wool and the Gang

    I'm so excited to tell that we finally have most of the Wool and the Gang yarns (and some kits too) in stock! From the 'classic' super chunky Crazy Sexy Wool, to the most luscious newcomer in the family Sheepaca, a yarn as elegant as it's name! Recently I grabbed hold of one of the Gangstas Anna Martinou and asked...

  9. But what does it look like...?

    One of the best parts of my job is to receive deliveries, and I'm sure this goes for everyone working in a yarn shop. There is this very particular excitement when opening the boxes, being the first one to open the bags and pull out the lovely woolliness neatly winded up in fresh skeins or balls. Admiring the texture, the...
  10. Once more, we're having a give away!

    I'm feeling rather festive, and have decided to run a give away on the blog.

So to get your name in 'the hat' this is what you have...
