  • We had a lot of fun collaborating with Third Vault Yarns for this year's Open Day Special yarn!
     
    Third Vault Yarns are inspired by fantasy and sci-fi. When deciding on what theme to go with, Lola listed numerous fantasy series, all of which I haven't read! We finally realised that we both enjoyed Terry Pratchett's Discworld, and love the original cover art from the books.
     
    We dyed two different yarn bases:
    50% Corriedale 50% Mohair - this yarn has all the lustre and drape you'd expect from its constituent fibres and that beautiful fuzzy halo too.
    100% Cormo wool - a bouncy 4 ply / fingering weight that is soft and smooth. This is the one used in the swatches.
    Both yarns are 400m per 100g skein.

    The marvellous mill folk at John Arbon Textiles are celebrating their 20th anniversary and you’re all invited! Part of the festivities includes the launch of their Appledore yarn, and we were delighted that they asked us and Third Vault Yarns to dye some limited edition shades for the event.
     
    As Appledore is all about glorious West Country apples, Lola (Third Vault Yarns) looked slightly further afield - out into intergalactic space, in fact! She is a big sci-fi fan and has created shades inspired by tropical fruits which are often used as props in sci-fi films and TV shows - we just love the idea, and would well recommend googling a Kiwano if you're not familiar! Instead of zooming off into future realms, we stayed right here, inspired by the West Country but travelled back in time to the mythical court of Arthurian legends. Purple was a royal colour in the Middle Ages. Can’t you just imagine lady Guinevere wearing a garment in Excalibur? And Avalon is giving us all the lady in the lake feels... and as serendipity would have it, Avalon and Excalibur are both heritage varieties of plum trees, yum.
     
    So without further ado, we’d love to present you with not one, not two, but four glorious shades inspired by nature's bounty with a playful twist that is out of this world. We just love the way all four shades play together and would love a big old stripy sweater...
  • Naturally Dyed – Severn 4 Ply 50g

    GBP £9.00
    Limited Edition Naturally Dyed Yarn
    These very special skeins have been dyed by extracting natural colours from plants that have either been foraged by us or come from a sustainable source. They are true one-of-a-kind shades that cannot be repeated. They have been hand-dyed in a semi-solid / tonal style so there will be some gentle variation in tone that lends a bit of extra interest to your project.
    The colourway name indicates firstly the source of the dye and secondly, a colour description. For example: "Madder Coral" is dyed with madder and has a coral colour.
