Hello! The online shop is still open while we're away on our summer holiday. Our packing elves will ship orders once a week. If you'd like to follow along with our boating adventure, head on over to Instagram or Facebook :-)
  • Close up of skeins in zesty green with pops of yellow and purple Skeins of Nene 4 Ply in zesty greens with pops of yellow and purple
    We created this colourway partly out of longing for summer after the rather wet and cold spring of 2021, and partly due to the kids bringing that oh-so-annoying phrase out of hibernation since we’ve been coming out of lockdown and travelling further afield! This colourway is moderately variegated and that makes it a lot of fun to work with because almost every stitch is a different colour. Textured patterns will show up in this yarn, alternatively, use it for something simple and let the colours do the work!

  • Lake Bacalar from the shore. There is a palm tree in the foreground and the water graduates from light, bright aqua to deep blue. A pile of skeins of Laguna de Bacalar, an aqua / blue colourway

    Laguna de Bacalar – Nene 4 Ply 100g

    GBP £19.90
    Chris and Bek are part of the extended RiverKnits family and they designed this fresh and funky limited edition colourway, based on a special holiday memory! They showed us beautiful photos of Lake Bacalar from their travels around Mexico and we dyed yarn to match. Lake Bacalar is often referred to as the "lagoon of seven colours" due to the number of striking aquas and blues in the famously clear waters. It's also home to one of the oldest living organisms; stromatolites, basically layers of rock formed by cyanobacteria. Very very cool.
    This is a limited edition colourway and will be available while stocks last.

    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.

    On The Cut – Nene 4 Ply 100g

    GBP £19.90
    The Cut is an old boating term for the canal, because it is cut (or dug) into the landscape. So "on the cut" means cruising on the canal, and the colours are reflected in this yarn. Sky blue, white fluffy clouds, and the green-brown sliver of the water. Although quite highly variegated, the colours are light and will allow textured patterns to shine through while lending visual interest to simple ones. The gentle colours blend beautifully in the finished project.

    Fibre: Sourced from Worcestershire, UK

    Recommended needle & hook size: 2.5mm - 3.75mm (always check the pattern)

    This is a light and airy woollen-spun and plied yarn from a single farm in Worcestershire. Jacob sheep are one of the oldest native breeds in the UK. They are striking in their appearance, with white and brown fleeces and multiple horns! We sorted the fleeces by hand, separating the white from the brown. We have natural and dyed shades available. The wool is hardwearing and makes lightweight, warm garments that soften beautifully with age. Use it for hats, mittens, jumpers, and house socks and slippers. The yarn is made up of 2 plies, which lends itself well to lace patterns and stranded colourwork. This yarn hasn’t been superwash-treated, so it will felt if you want it to. This also makes it an excellent candidate for steeking, if you’re brave enough!
